Nice URLs only on some Confluence OnDemand pages

I've created Confluence OnDemand pages which normally can be accessed via URLs that look like this:

https://ourcompanyname.atlassian.net/wiki/display/KEY/page+name

The problem is that several recently created pages don't seem to get those nice URLs anymore...some of them (not all) now have URLs like this:

https://ourcompanyname.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=7045154

Why does this happen? How do I change URLs to nice ones, like the first one?

Usually that means the title has special characters in it.

Yes, You're right, that it seems to be the common denominator. In this case the page titles contained å,ä or ö.

Thanks!

and it still reacts like this. that sucks so much. I'd rather have pretty much anything else than this pageId crap. (A really straightforward solution would be "something+else" in the URL if the title is "something (else)" - just delete the chars if you can't process them)

confluence is a great product, just sometimes the Atlassian folks seem knuckleheaded beyond anything. They actually implement auto-correct in this entry box so "Atlassian" is always written with a capital "A" (try smile), but nice URLs are not in their repertoire.

 

Oh and your docs are wrong btw.

We have a page with "()" in the title -> pageId. Another page has "*" -> no pageId.
