"Content" Tab of a Page

On a page, click Edit and select the "Content" tab:

  • Display Name - If you are using Breadcrumbs or if your website has a Sitemap then you may want to specify a Display Name that is shorter than the "Title", as in the example above.  In that example, having the extra "Content Creation" text in a breadcrumb will take up extra space, and if the breadcrumbs are done well, the "Content Creation" context will already be provided in a previous breadcrumb link.  As for links in the Sitemap, having many redundant "Content Creation:" entries will clutter up the listing.
  • Title - Choose a descriptive title for the page. The "Title" and "Display Name" should only be identical if you have Breadcrumbs for your pages, or if your website has a Sitemap.  It is important that the Title of the page be descriptive and unique, since the title of the page will be displayed in Google's search results and on social media like Facebook. For example, rather than a generic "Forms" or "Contact Us," use a more descriptive headline such as "Human Resources Student Employment Forms" or "Contact the Human Resources Staff." 
    • GOOD:
      • "Apply for a Perkins Loan"
      • "About the Human Resources Department"
    • BAD
      • "Perkins Loan"
      • "About"
  • Page heading (optional)  - A page heading is usually not needed since the page title usually takes care of providing this context. If you wish to provide a page heading, just make sure it is not redundant with the page title, which will display right above the page heading.
