All about page naming
When you name a page in Fusion that information is used in 4 different ways. Firstly the page name is used as the name of the HTML file which is generated when you publish. To ensure the file is compatible on all web servers any spaces or non alphanumeric characters are replaced with an underscore, so a page called "my cat's mat" will generate an HTML file called "my_cat_s_mat.html" (read about a bug*). Fusion will place a 30 character limit on the HTML filename (truncating the filename if necessary) - in practice you'd probably want the filename to be considerably shorter than an unwieldy 30 characters.
The Fusion page name is also used to generate the title of the HTML document. This is displayed in the header bar of the browser. The text used for the title is given a lot of weight by search engines indexing your site, so it's a good idea to ensure that keywords are used in the title.
If you are using a banner on your page this will also take its text from the page name.
And finally if you are using a Fusion navbar this will also take its name from the page name - you'll want to ensure this text is sufficiently short so that it doesn't overrun the end of the button.
Fusion will try to automate as much as possible by assigning the page name to; the HTML filename, the title, the banner and the navigation bar. For ease of management it helps to allow Fusion to automate. However you may not wish all these to be named the same, so Fusion allows you to customise. In the page properties palette, visible by default in site view (or press F11 in page view), you can specifically set the names for the page title, navigation button and banner.
Alternatively you can select the banner in page view and customise its name through the banner properties palette - this (perhaps confusingly) overrides any customisation made through the page properties palette.
As well as setting the navigation button name through the page properties, you can also double click to select a button, and set its properties via the navigation button properties palette. Once again, this overrides any setting made for the navigation button in pages properties. Using this method it is possible for one page to have different names on different navigation bars.
*There is a reported bug which occasionally exhibits when using spaces in page names. When the page is renamed using the properties palette Fusion continues to publish with the old HTML filename. If this occurs, the workaround is to copy and paste the page in site view, rename it and relink any links if necessary, then delete the original page. You can avoid this by always renaming the page by clicking on the page icon.
