A-Z glossary of PageSeeder concepts


A key PageSeeder concept, the group restricts access to content, such as documents and comments to a member.

Within the group, members can have different levels of permission (functionality) but all members see the same content. In other words, there are no additional privacy settings inside a group.

Groups belong to a project and inherit many characteristics such as labels and publish scripts from the project.

Technical details

For information about naming or accessing groups, plus other setup or usage options, see group configuration.

For further information regarding groups, see the user guide .

PageSeeder Group Structure

Group title

The title is a user-friendly name to display in the user interface. This is useful if the group name contains abbreviations, acronyms or underscores. The title can include punctuation and spaces to describe the group. It’s not recommended to use hyphens in group titles.

  • Restrict the length to 100 characters. 

Group name

  • A group name can only contain lowercase letters, numbers, underscore (_) or tilde (~).

Group name restrictions

The “URL” is the fundamental building block of PageSeeder. To avoid inconsistent, ambiguous or non-compliant URLs, projects must be named according to the following conventions:

  • The name of the group must be a unique filename within the project.
  • Restrict the length to 52 characters.

The name you use is the short name of the group. When creating groups, we ask for the short name because it's created within the project.

The full name of the group includes the name of its parent project, [project]-[group],  and is used in URLs and email addresses. The full name of the group cannot exceed 60 characters.
