    Exporting Modules - Name and/or Display Name

    I understand the difference between "Filename" and displayed names but I am confused as to how "name" & "displayname" are meant to possibly differ?

    Or is DisplayName now the "goto" and "name" is a leftover? When I fill in both, the one that displays in the Module interface is "DisplayName"
    Is "name" now legacy and should be kept empty? When I googled for HowTos, they alternatively showed images with only one of the two.

    The fields are described in the Wiki here: https://fantasygroundsunity.atlassia...+File+Overview

    "name" is absolutely still used. "This name is used in all links to module data." So, If you have a story entry in your module whose database entry is encounters.id-0001 then any links to that record will append the module "name" at the end - e.g. [email protected]_name

    Cool, I used "terror_at_wulfs_head" for name (assuming since "displayname" had "display" in it... this one was meant to be "codey") and "Terror at Wulf's Head" for displayname.
