The Browser Bar Title field allows you to set that data. If you leave it blank, it'll auto generate from the Content Title Field.
Meta Description (Search Engine Description)
- If you view a page's source (see Browser Bar Title above) you'll see a 'description' meta tag. The Search Engine Description field allows you to set that data. If you leave it blank, it'll WILL NOT auto generate. Compose a concise description with 2-3 keyword rich sentences. It needs to be written for BOTH search engines and web visitors because a search engine may display the description to as search engine results.

Use the editor to compose/modify your content. This field functions like other word processors except that it works with HTML content which is different from processors like MS Word. Use the icons to modify your textual copy and other web content.
Use the design editor to drag drop content elements.
- Create the structure of your page with these prebuilt
elements. Each serves as a container for content elements.
- Use basic elements to fill structural elements. They do not automatically come in structural containers.
- Content layouts are prebuilt structured containers with common basic elements already inside them. You can't put a content layout inside an existing structural element because they include their own structures.
Use the classic editor to quickly add text and other simple content. There are no drag/drop elements. The editor is much like using a simplified version of Word.
