    I wanted to chuck newsletters under Administration since we won't really use them, and that means I needed to set the ShowInNav property to false...however you can't do that at all in the UI as the name in the inputbox is a resource name and that fails the regex for saving.

    (Just a heads up, this would be nice to fix, so we don't have to do it via code)

    Hello Steve,

    If you want to hide a module instead of deleting the module all together, you can go into Adminstration -> Backend pages -> Adminstration -> go to the pages you wish to hide -> click on Actions -> Title & Properties -> uncheck "Show in navigation." This will hide the module in the backend. You also can delete pages but this may destroy your backend pages.

    Please let us know if you have anymore questions.

    Hey Grace,
      Yeah that's what I was doing :)

    It looks like the problem is that the "Title for search engines" (when filled in with a resource name) blocks saving of the page

    So for example the Newsletter Overview page if you edit it, this is the name in there
    $Resources: NewslettersResources,Newsletters

    ...trying to save generates this

    The 'Title for search engines' contains invalid symbols. 

    So clearly no search engine will be indexing my backend, so if I remove that text I instead get this
    The 'Title for search engines' contains invalid symbols. Title for search engines cannot be empty. 

    ...so since it needs something, and will never be indexed by google it'd be safe to just enter ANYTHING in there, and I can...but it's blocking user input really if someone didn't know that.

    Hi Steve,

    You can control which symbols are allowed by modifying the default regular expression. I have included a link to a forum thread which goes into further detail.

    Please let us know if you have anymore questions. We will be glad to assist.

    Kind regards,

    Right, sure I could :). ...but again not an issue for me anyway. Shouldn't this be adjusted so it doesnt always happen anyway? PITS perhaps?
