Overview of Metadata Fields¶
The field Title is primarily used in the backend. It will be shown in the Media->List module and in the Element browser.
To get your media items displayed in a meaningfull (alphabetical) order for a portrait of Albus Dumbledore we suggest a title like Dumbledore Alfred.
A note on filenames and Title: When you upload a file, the autoindexing feature of DAM will try to make a title out of the filename. In that process, the underscore (_) will be replaced by a blank space. So, if you want to save time here, name your file
The field Caption is intended for frontend output, for a portrait of Dumbldore this would be "Prof. Dr. Alfred Dumbledore".
Ident key (sku) (ident)¶
The usage of the field Ident key highly depends on what you are doing on your website. Two possible examples:
- In case you offer eBooks on your website, the ISBN number could go here.
- In case you display images of your products, the product number would be a choice.
