A-Z glossary of PageSeeder concepts


Whether it is a normal binary file such as a .ZIP or a Microsoft Office document or a PageSeeder document, any file viewed in PageSeeder has both a filename and document title. However, because these files are physically stored on the file system of the host server, it is possible to view them directly through the operating system. In this circumstance, only the filename is visible.

It is because PageSeeder runs on many different operating systems that the allowable characters in a filename has been restricted to the following, safe sub-set:

  • all characters between, and including, ASCII 32 (Space) and ASCII 126 (~)

Characters NOT allowed in a filename

  • / \ ? % * : | < > "

The same constraints applies to folder names.
