space key in page URL

W have some pages in our Confluence instance that do not have the space key in the page URL. As a result, some of the Confluence macros can not be used with these pages. 

What causes a page NOT to have the space key as part of the URL?

Example:

regular page url - https://(baseURL)/display/CON/C15+2015+Delivery

other page url - https://(baseurl)/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=63866104

Hi JT,

That is caused by having special characters in the page title. There is more information in this article:

Page titles without special characters will create a URL like: http://localhost:8080/display/support/Page+Title

Adding any special characters to the title will cause the pageId to be used instead: http://localhost:8080/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=1900546

Thanks,
