A-Z glossary of PageSeeder concepts

Document title

Refers to a property of a document. All PageSeeder documents, regardless of their media type or content, have a Document title.

The Document title is part of the document metadata. It appears in the document header when viewing or editing documents and can be edited through the document info and metadata panel or document toolbar.

Document title restrictions

The document title must not exceed 250 characters.

Document title vs. first heading

It is not to be confused with the first heading in the content of PSML documents, which is sometimes casually referred to as the “document title”.

Document title vs heading

When a PSML document is created, a heading in the content is generally populated with the Document title property. So, unless either the document title or the first heading have been edited subsequently, they have the same value.

PageSeeder warns when the document title and the first heading do not match.

Document title and filename

When creating documents, the document title is used to generate the filename of the document and the first heading of the document.

Document title vs filename

Conversely, when a document title is not specified, it inherits the name of the file. This generally occurs when files are uploaded (for example, images).

When uploading a Word document, if there is a Title in the DOCX document properties, this becomes the PSML Document title. The PSML filename is then the same as the DOCX filename.
