Field names are:

  • Any mix of letters and digits and the characters '-' or '_'
  • Starting with a letter
  • Case-insensitive

For now, Wikidot does not validate the form definition so it will automatically turn invalid field names into valid field names, e.g. by replacing invalid punctuation with '-'. But in future the form will be validated and field names that contain invalid characters (spaces, dots, etc.) will be rejected.

For upper/lower case, Wikidot treats these as the same, so a field called 'NAME' is the same as one called 'name', particularly when showing field data in templating and ListPages.
