Naming of files and folders

When naming files and folder, to avoid problems with your projects you should avoid the following:

Punctuation such as comma, semicolon, apostrophe, quotes etc.;

Diacriticals such as acute, circumflex, umlaut etc.

Spaces and capitals can also cause problems, capitals for example are not differentiated from lowercase by some web servers. Spaces need to be encoded for use in web addresses, so you will see, for example ‘this%20is%20a%20space’ instead of ‘this is a space’. Whilst not a problem, it hinders readability and complicates passing URLs to others.

Instead of naming files and folders with those characters just keep to simple text, then in the ‘Title’ field enter the text you want to be seen.
