Page Properties

Parameters can be used to control preconfigured aspects of a page, such as supplying meta tag content, setting access, and selecting keywords. Page parameters are accessed from the Page Properties view. In order access page properties, the page must be checked out to the current user. Users level 5 through 10 have inherent authority to edit the properties of a page to which they have access. The available metadata and parameters for properties depend upon template design. Some of the fields available during page creation also include properties. The Page Parameters panel includes the Title and Meta Tags area and the Custom Settings area within the panel.
