Detail Pages Tab

The Detail Pages tab lets you assign a folder for the pages to be generated into, assign a template for your detail pages, and define how you want the generated detail pages to be named.

Assigning a Destination Folder

If you want to generate detail pages, check the box labeled "Create Detail Pages in" to activate the features in the Detail Pages tab. If you have not already assigned a folder in which to generate the pages, setting that checkbox will trigger to "Folder..." button next to it, which presents a dialog to let you select the target folder.

WebMerge provides two options for determining the names of your generated detail page. The names of generated files consist of a base name and an extension, and can either be based on the contents of a field or serialized.

As you change options in these controls, WebMerge updates an example name in the upper right of this group showing you what the name of the first generated file will look like.

The three main options for naming index pages are:
