What are the best practices of naming files and folders for the web?

When naming anything used on the CMS, please follow these guidelines.

  • Make it short.
    • Search engines do not like directory names resembling "my-long-directory-name" but rather "dir-name" or something shorter and more concise.
  • Only use lowercase letters, numbers, dashes, and underscores.
  • Do not use spaces.
  • Avoid special characters.
