Advanced page properties window

 

Advanced form fields restrict the type of content that can be passed into a page property. Dropdowns and radio fields restrict selection to a single value, while checkboxes allow the user to select multiple values. The file chooser field allows a user to browse the directory tree; then, after the user selects a file, a valid, absolute path to the file is automatically substituted into the file chooser field.

In addition to the advanced configuration parameters, meta tags are also supported and will appear in the meta section at the bottom of the page properties window. The page title always appears at the top of the window.
