Folders are used to organize the content on your website.
Abide by and follow the below guidelines when using folders. Being consistent with folder use ensures current and future publishers can locate content.
- Changing the name of a folder or moving content from one folder to another will result in broken links.
- To make ensure links are not broken, run a "Link Search" report on each affected page.
- Store all images and videos in the "_Media"* folder for your site.
- Store all .pdfs, .docs, .xls, .ppts, and other forms in the "_Forms"* folder for your site.
- * If you do not have these folders, you can create them.
Use a short, effective name for your folder. The name of your folder may be visible in the URL to your page, as well as in the page's breadcrumb trail.
Guidelines for naming your folder:
- No punctuation should be used, except a "-" (dash).
- Replace the words "and" and "of" with a "-" (dash). For example, "Scholarships and Grants", would become "Scholarships-Grants"
- Capitalize each word used in naming your folder.
Landing page in parent folder
Create a landing page with the same name as your folder and save it in the parent folder. The landing page will serve as an introduction to the contents of the folder and will ease navigation as the folder structure reflects the menu in the left navigation.
For example, if a new folder "Training Materials" is created, an introduction page is created and saved in it's parent folder "Training".

- Select the “New” tab, then select ”Folder."
- Name your folder by typing in the “Name” field.
- Click the “Save” button in the top left corner.
- Your new folder will appear where you created
it; pages and content can be created within it.
