All documents and folders belong to at least one group folder. Each group folder contains its own tree of documents and folders.
Because a group folder can be bound to its own scheme, host and port, it can be used to associate a set of documents within a group to another host or server.
It is also the primary mechanism for sharing documents and for providing public access to documents within a group.
Every group comes with two predefined group folders. These group folders are created when a group is created inheriting the default PageSeeder scheme, host and port defined for your system.
|Document root||The document root is the default top level folder for the documents.|
|Comment root||Used as a container to attach all general comments.|
A public group folder can provide public access to a set of documents within a group even if that group is "private" (that is requiring login to access).
Both group folders and regular folders are used to organize documents.
Group folders are directly associated to documents: every document (and folder!) belongs to a group folder. This is a strong and direct association.
A regular folder shares the same scheme, host and port as its ancestor group folder. The documents within a regular folder share the same group folder, but apart from the sharing the same subpath they have nothing more in common: there is no direct association between a folder and the documents it contains, it is a weak association.
