Common Asset Settings

Properties

AssetID - This is the unique identifier WebGUI uses to keep track of this Asset instance. Normal users should never need to be concerned with the asset id, but some advanced users may need to know it for things like SQL Reports. The asset id is not editable.

Title - The title of the Asset. This should be descriptive, but not very long. If left blank, this will be set to "Untitled". Macros, HTML and javascript may not be placed in the title. Note: You should always specify a title, even if the Asset template will not use it. In various places on the site, like the Page Tree, Clipboard and Trash, the title is used to distinguish this Asset from others.

Menu Title - A shorter title that will appear in navigation. If left blank, this will default to the Title.

URL - The URL for this Asset. It must be unique. If this field is left blank, then an URL will be made from the parent's URL and the Menu Title.

Description - A content area in which you can place as much content as you wish. For instance, even before an FAQ there is usually a paragraph describing what is contained in the FAQ.

Display

Hide from navigation? - Select yes, if you whish to hide this Asset from navigation menus and site maps. This setting may be overridden by the Show hidden pages setting in the Navigation asset.

Open in new window? - Select yes to open this Asset in a new window. This feature must be supported by the Navigation template in use. It may not work in some navigations, or if the user turns off javascript, or it may be blocked by some pop-up blockers.

Display the title? - Select yes, if you wish to display the Asset's title.

Style Template - The style template to enclose your asset if it is viewed directly. If the asset is displayed as part of a Page Layout, the Page Layout's style template is used instead.

Printable Style - The printable style template to enclose your Asset if it is printed from a direct view. If the asset is displayed as part of a Page Layout, the Page Layout's printable style is used instead.

Cache Timeout - The period of time this Asset may be cached. A long period increases performance while a short period should be chosen for rapidly changing content.

Security

Owner - The owner of this Asset. This user has full editing and viewing rights. The owner will default to the owner of the parent Asset. It can only be changed by an administrator.

Who can view? - The user group who can view this Asset. This will default to the group who can view the parent of this Asset. Note: If you want both visitors and registered users to be able to view this Asset, you should choose "Everybody".

Who can edit? - The user group who can edit this Asset. This will default to the group who can edit the parent of this Asset. Note: This group can also always view the Asset.

Metadata

Summary - A short description of this Asset.

Extra <head> elements (tags) - These tags will be added to the <head> section of each page on which this Asset appears.

Make package? - Select yes, if you want this Asset to be available as a package. Many WebGUI tasks are very repetitive. Automating these tasks in WebGUI, such as creating an Asset, or sets of Assets, is done by creating a package that can be reused throughout the site. See also Packages.

Make prototype? - Select yes, if you want this Asset to become a prototype. A prototype allows you to save the settings of an Asset, and then reuse that Asset throughout the site. See also Prototypes.

Make this asset exportable? - Select yes, if you want this Asset to be exportable as static HTML. Note that the Asset's parents must be exportable, too, for an export of the complete branch. Also, exporting has to be enabled in the WebGUI config file for this site. See also Static Exports.

Prepend URL from parent? - Select yes, if the URL of this asset should be prepended by the URL of its parent.

Keywords - Keywords to be added to the search index and as keyword metatags in the <head> section of each page on which the asset appears. Adding keywords will improve the meaningfulness of search results and potentially leads to better indexing by search engines.
