Documents and folders belong to an internal host, meaning they are managed internally by PageSeeder and their source can be found in the local database or file system. Like in a file system, folders are containers for documents.
URLs belong to an external host; their source is defined outside of PageSeeder.
In the PageSeeder API, documents, folders and URLs are represented using the <uri> element.
URLs might also be described as external URIs.
All URIs can be exported with an associated PSML file descriptor (
<document level="metadata">), allowing PageSeeder to re-import any PageSeeder-specific data associated with the file. PSML documents don’t have a file descriptor as they already contain all associated data.
