A-Z glossary of PageSeeder concepts

External URL

Also known as URL or external URI, it is an object that stores the location of a resource outside PageSeeder and a first class citizen in the system. They can be the target of cross-references, labelled and searched just like normal documents and fragments.

They can also be uploaded using metadata files as part of the Universal Portable Format.

The display of reverse cross references from external URLs can simplify the task of managing links to external sites.

For more information on creating and searching URLs see Version 5.4 features.


As the URL part of an external URI is shared across all groups, someone in one group cannot by default change the URL for every group on the server. Normally the URL must be archived and a new one created.

To allow editing a URL from one group, that group must own the domain for the URL. This is done by first making the domain internal on the Hosts page located under the Admin tab and then adding the domain to the Group Folders (e.g.*).
