  • A title is required for every basic page and is used by the system to identify the content
  • The title will always appear as all capital letters regardless of how you enter it
  • The title may be changed from original page creation title


  • To the immediate right of the Body label is a toggle switch between editing the main body, the default, and editing a summary
    • Clicking on (Edit Summary) switches the text area from Body to Summary
    • Clicking on (Hide Summary) switches the text are back from Summary to Body
  • Typically the summary text area is not used except when the content is very long. The formatting controls for both the Summary and Body are the same
