Configuration Setting: sepchar
This variable determines the character that separates words in a pagename and that replaces characters not valid in a pagename.
- Type: Character (letter, digit, '_', '-', or '.')
The pagename is the component of the URL that specifies the page. For example, by default the link doesn't exist goes to the URL
wiki:doesn_t_exist is the pagename. The default sepchar is '_', so the apostrophe and the space each appear as an '_' in the link.
By changing sepchar to another character, you can change the '_' to another character. The valid sepchar characters are those that are valid in a pagename: letters, digits, underscore (
_), dash (
-), and dot (
.). The sepchar variable must contain exactly one character.
Be careful with this variable. By changing it you can make pages created under a previous sepchar inaccessible. When you create a new page, the pagename becomes the file name for the page. If you create pages with sepchar '_' and then later use sepchar '-', your links to those previously created pages will break because the links will change but the file names won't.
