When entering more than one tag into the Page tags field, the tags should be separated with a comma or a blank space. A combination of both in a single entry is also valid. The following examples are all valid entries for adding three tags - tag1, tag2 and tag3:


tag1, tag2, tag3

tag1 tag2 tag3

tag1, tag2 tag3


In case that you are entering a tag consisting of more than one word, you should enclose it within quotation marks. Multiple long tags can also be entered and can be also divided by both blank spaces and commas:


"long tag1", tag, "long tag2"

"long tag1" tag "long tag2"


Quotation marks can also be used for tags containing special characters that couldn't be used otherwise:


"tag@1", "tag#2", "long, strange: tag@#$"


The page tags field also has an autocompletion function implemented. This functions offers you tags from the selected tag group while you are writing.





Global Settings


You can configure a prefix for the page title, description and keywords for all documents on the website using the corresponding settings in Site Manager -> Settings -> Content. Here you can set the prefixes and also the standard format of the page title.


The default page title format is: {%prefix%} - {%pagetitle_orelse_name%}


It means that the format consists of the prefix followed by the page title value. If the page title value is not set, the document name is used.


Macro expressions in metadata


You can use macros in format {%ColumnName%} to insert the values of the current document's fields into the title or other metadata properties. See Development -> Macro expressions for more information about macro expressions.
