  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Marketing
  • Career Site Builder

  4. Error -> Invalid Page

This is an Expected Behavior of the system. No special characters other than underscore or dash are allowed in this box as the browser's URL path cannot support them.
The acceptable characters are [a-z], [A-Z], [0-9] plus dash (hyphen) and underscore


The Workaround is to use the Tags to add meta information to the page:

  1. Open page settings
  2. Select Tags
  3. Populate page title with special characters

Note changing this value will update the page title and meta title. It will not update the URL.

Being able to add special characters (such Chinese or Russian characters) to Content Page names would be an Enhancement to the product. Please see 'See Also' section for Process KBA.
