Occassionally, after creating a page, I've noticed that the URL appearing in the browser's address box does NOT show the page name, but a weird "viewpage.action.?pageID".
For example, on such a page the address appears as:
Although, on most pages it looks like this:
where the page space and name are explicitly displayed.
In addition, I've recently noticed that pages for which only the pageID is displayed DO NOT send notifications to watchers or to users referenced within the page.
Am I crazy or is this a known issue? Is there anyway to correct the page?
Confluence changes the request to point to a pageID rather than using the usual RESTful request (of .../display/page_name) when page names have a special character in them, such as an apostrophe or ampersand.
The second part you mentioned, about not getting notifications on pages like this, sounds like a bug in the notification system.
