When a page is moved or renamed using the Move tool, it requires a page name.  Due to system limitations, correct page names can only be alphanumeric characters, dashes, or in rare cases, underscores.  But the tool allows an author to enter blanks or non-alphanumerics (e.g. !@#$%). Then when the author clicks OK, a generic error message appears:  "An error occured while moving page."

Adjusting a page Title in the Websites List View can corrupt the page in the UBCMS, making it "unstructured" content. This is transparent to authors until it interferes with normal UBCMS functionality. While it is technically 'normal' UBCMS functionality, it should be avoided until further notice.
