Name format for children

Optionally specify a format for page names used when a new child page is added. This enables the "Page Add" step to be skipped when adding a new page. In order to work, a single (1) template must be selected for the "Allowed template(s) for child pages" field.

When a new page is created and the name is not unique, an incrementing number will be appended to the end of it until it is unique.

If you want your page names to derive their value from the title field: Enter "title" (without the quotes) as your name format.

If you want your page names to reflect the created date/time: Enter a PHP date format for the value of your name format. Your date format must include at least one non-alphanumeric character (like a slash "/" or colon ":" for example) in order to be recognized as a date format. Example: "Y/m/d H:i:s" would result in page names like: "2014-10-30-12-39-01". As you can see, non-alphanumeric characters still present in a formatted date are converted to hyphens.
