Viewing and Editing Page Meta-data

As a CM1 user you can add meta-data to your pages which CM1 uses in multiple ways.  As of 2.6, the meta-data is stored in expandable and collapsible groups of information including Page Summary, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Tags and Categories, Calendar, and Additional Code.  Certain fields are even auto-filled based on other metadata fields e.g. the required Page title field under the SEO grouping is auto-filled based on the Display title.

Viewing page meta-data:

1. To view meta-data, open the page.
2. Click the Meta-data link.
3. If the page is in read-only mode, the meta-data will be displayed in read-only mode.

Editing page meta-data:

1. To edit meta-data, open the page in edit mode.
2. Click the Meta-data link and edit the fields.
Note: There are some fields which will still be in read-only mode. 

Character validation:

Characters that are not valid in file names on Microsoft Windows operating systems: \ / : * ? " < > |
Characters that are not safe in URLs:
o # (hash, pound, or octothorpe; used in HTML anchors);
o ; (semicolon; used to append jsession IDs to URLs); and
o % (percent sign; used to encode or escape characters in URLs).

Creating a Page Summary

There are multiple ways to create a Page Summary, which can appear in automatically generated lists. 

Option 1: Enter a summary in the rich text Page summary field in the Meta-data section and uncheck the Auto-generate summary check box below the rich text editor.

1) Open the rich text editor to define the text that you want displayed as the summary
2) Click your cursor at a point in the text to indicate where the page summary will stop displaying the text.
3) Click the More link icon to insert the < more> link.

Option 2: Use the text before the < more> link as the page summary. Make sure the field Auto generate page summary is checked (the default) under the meta-data.  Note: If more that one rich text widget on a page has a < more> link, the system uses the summary last entered or modified.
