Hello Michelle

If you're trying to rename your pages in your Site Manager, the page will automatically revert to lowercase and will put in dashes where you have a space between your text. The reason why this occurs is because this will be the URL name for your page. URLS do not contain capital letters or spaces.

However, there is a way to rename your pages so that it comes up as you would like on your Navigation menu. Here are the steps:

1. Click the "Edit Navigation" button on the top toolbar.
2. A dialog box will open up with a list of all your pages. Click on the blue link that says "settings".
3. You will see two boxes that say "Navigation Text" and "Hover Text". Navigation Text is the name that appears in the navigation menu of your site. Hover Text is the text that pops up when someone moves their mouse pointer to one of the tabs in your navigation. Type in your desired text in those two boxes.
4. Click "OK" and your navigation will be updated with the changes you made.

I hope that helps!
