Frequently asked questions


This guidance only applies to XML forms.

For labels with more than one word you need to add an additional attribute in the XML file.

As standard you would put name="Hereisalabel" but if you want it to display on the page with spaces between each code you should use shortname="Hereisalabel" name="Here is a label". For labels with just one word, you only need to use the name property.


Server errors occur for a number of reasons. See our common Contensis errors page for example errors and how to fix them.

If you are interested in becoming a CMS Editor or Approver book onto an upcoming training session.
