Files must not be named "untitled.html"

The filename "untitled" represents the absence of a filename rather than a filename that is intended to be used.  This can accidentally happen because if a filename isn't chosen when creating a page, the K-State CMS defaults to "untitled".

Why is this important

The filename is part of the URL of the page, and words in a URL are highly weighted by search engines when ranking pages. In other words, choosing a descriptive filename is an excellent opportunity to increase the visibility of your page in search results.

The exposure of a meaningless default name like "untitled" to the public marks the page as amaturish and unprofessional.

To fix this error

Rename the page to a descriptive name.
