Page URLs

New page URLs automatically generate from the page title, appended to the path where the page is created. You can decouple a page link to be different from the page title.

Spaces in page titles become underscores in the URL. If you create a new page under example.com/support/enterprise called "New Page" then the URL will be example.com/support/enterprise/New_Page.

Change a page URL

By default, any change to a page title will automatically change the page link to match the new title.

Modify page URL to be different from page title
  1. Hover over the page title and click the pencil icon pencil-icon.png.
  2. Click the link icon paperclip-icon.png under the page title so the URL field becomes editable.
  3. Modify the URL field as needed and click Update title.

The page title and URL will continue to be controlled independently unless you reconnect the page URL to automatically match the page title again.

Reconnect page link to match page title
  1. Hover over the page title and click the pencil icon pencil-icon.png.
  2. Click the link icon paperclip-icon.png under the page title so the URL field becomes uneditable with a grey fill.

    If you modified the URL to be different and then reconnect it to match the page title, the uneditable field will show the modified URL until you complete the next step.

  3. Click Update title.

Special character warning

Using special characters such as %, $, &, etc. in a page title will trigger a warning icon in the title area. Any child pages created below a page with a special character warning will also display the warning, because the special characters are part of the URL.

To resolve but keep special characters in the page title, follow instructions to modify page URL to be different from the page title and remove the special characters from the URL. If you resolve the warning for a parent page, all child pages will also no longer display the warning.
