Web Page Parameters

Web Page Parameters General Considerations: 

  • Parameters must be entered with the proper syntax, names and spelling or they will not work.
  • When entering parameters, do not use spaces around the equals sign.
  • To connect two or more parameters together, use an ampersand (&) symbol. Do not use spaces around the ampersand.
  • Ensure the module item’s attribute name is spelled the same as in the system – it must be exact or it will not work.
