Web Pages Do Not Maintain Underscores in URL

 This article is suitable for a Library Administrator

Symptom:
 
When using Process Navigator to export to HTML, the output file omits the underscores in the filename. For example, the HTML output of a .vdx file called Test_Test.vdx will be:
 
test test.html
test test.map page-1.html
test test.map page-1_files
 
Cause: 
 
Process Navigator removes the underscore when publishing to HTML because having an underscore in the filename causes Visio problems.
 
Visio generates the HTML output. As part of this it, creates a filename_files folder. If the filename contains an underscore, Visio will crop the folder name at the underscore. For example, if the filename was File_Name, the generated folder would be File_files rather than File_Name_files as its expected to be. The generated page will not display.
 
Solution:
 
Removing underscores in your filenames solves the problem.
 
Applies to:
  • Process Navigator all versions
