Webmerge generating links with spaces?
- Join Date
- January 18th, 2005
I am noticing that webmerge is generating my links with spaces in them rather than underscores or hyphens ( I have checked that either underscores or hyphens was selected in the File Name Hyphenator.
I read earlier that someone else had this issue but didn't see a solution. It was suggested that he get the latest version. (This I've also done, but am still seeing links with spaces).
Maybe I didn't re-install it properly? Should I have just installed it over the my first copy or uninstall first? I have licensed it and the code was still in my copy.
Lastly, I suppose I can work around this by manipulating the data in my spreadsheets. If that's what I should do till the next release I'll be fine with that answer. I just don't want to keep spinning my wheels if there really is a bug or a solution.
Any ideas appreciated.

The links are using the information thats in the cell of the spreadsheet.
If the cell data is "blue widgets" then your template would need to be something like this to setup the correct link:
<A HREF=http://www.mydomain.com/[WM-Field: Product replace(" ","-")].htm> Which should result in this: <A HREF=http://www.mydomain.com/blue-widgets.htm>Scott

Don't tell me that you'll do it... SHOW ME.

The file name hyphenator always sets up the proper links (from the index page) for me without any need to have "replace" tags.
As for upgrades, I always write down my license key#, then I uninstall the old version before installing the new one. Then I type my key# into the new one to unlock it.
