Description zumbi 2004-10-06 16:46:44 UTC

I'm using OOo Impress HTML export to publish my presentations on my website.
This is a nice way to get an index too.

There is a pretty ugly issue though when I remove or add a page, which changes
page numbers. This can change the URL of a given slide, because the HTML file
name is associated to its page number. This is an issue for people who refer to
a particular presentation page from their websites.

When Impress exports to HTML, could it use the slide name instead of the page
number as a basis for the page and image file names? The slide name is unique
too (enforced by Impress).

As this should be easy to implement and as it really impacts the usefulness of
HTML export, I'd really appreciate if this issue could be fixed in the next
major release of OOo. Let me know if I can help!

Thank you for everything!

This is no defect but an enhancement. Reassigned to Bettina.

I'm surprised nobody else supported this. Because of this, the links to my HTML
exported pages are no longer correct when I insert or remove a page.

I checked that this issue it still there in the latest OOo 2.0 beta version.

That would be great if the suggested improvement could be implemented!

Problems may arise with I18N support: how to export slide names with characters
outside the ASCII codetable?

I think slide numbers are also important. So file names could contain both slide
numbers AND slide names.
Comment 5 zumbi 2009-03-31 13:02:19 UTC
The decision could perhaps be up to the user. If non ASCII characters are used
in slide titles, users will see problems with generate file names, and may
decide to switch back to the page numbers.

I don't see the added value of using both the slide number and slide title. You
loose the benefit of having a page URL that doesn't change when you insert or
remove pages before the current page.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
