Page properties / metadata
Each page you create in Infoglue will have to have some metadata bound to it. Things like title, keywords and other site specific things are often needed. In Infoglue you reach these properties by clicking on the page in the navigation and then on the button “Metadata”-button in the toolbar. The dialog looks like this:
The fields are actually defined by your developers in a special content type called "Meta info" but these are the fields that comes default and they should be fairly self explanatory. As you might notice there is a language drop menu available. This is because page properties
also can be localized. A page has probably not the same title, keywords etc in all languages for example. So edit the version you are on and press save. Then change to the other languages you wish to edit in the dropdown and do the same for them.
There are also other tabs in this view but they are not normally used.
Below the "Meta data"-button is the "Page details"-button. It allows you to control page behaviour in more technical detail. The dialog looks like this:
Here you can change the page name. control it's publish/expire date and other things like stating that it should be hidden in menues etc.
If you enter the tab "Advanced" in this view you get even more options:
In this view you can control the http content type of the page, set cache rules and some other special things.
The tab "Languages" allows for disabling or enabling languages for this particular node and it's subnodes. Useful for multi language sites.
The last two tabs (History and References) have been covered in other similar sections.
As Infoglue page management is based on decorating your templates and components with Infoglue code (html) it can be a problem if the result of the page is either invalid html or some other format (RSS for example). In that situation the normal page editing does not work. This is why the "Simple view" was introduced. The button is located below the "Page details"-button and the view you get is:
It is basically a simple representation of the page as a component model. Each component is represented by name and a border round it and it shows the hierarchical structure of the page layout. In this mode you can work with the components and their settings even though the page is not rendered. Great for debugging or for special cases.
