WikidPad can export wiki pages to
an XML filea set of .wiki files a multi page text file
To export a wiki to .wiki files you can select the predefined option:
"Wiki / Export / Export Wiki to .wiki files" in the main menu
This function uses default WikidPad settings. To override these settings or choose a different type of export, select "Other export ..." from the menu. This will bring up the export dialog window.
 exporting to .wiki files is mainly interesting for the migration of Compact version wiki's to original version wiki's.
The dialog window
DataExchange is at this moment combined with "Item Publishing" into one integral export function. Both functions use the same dialog window. The options relevant to data exchange are:
• What to export
Specifies what you want to export; the possible choices are:
All pages in the wiki.All pages in the current subtree (the current page and it's children).Current page only.Custom subset of wiki pages.
Choosing "Custom" will bring up the page list dialog, where the subset can be defined.
• Export to
Controls to whát the pages should be exported; the possible choices are:
• Compatible filenames
Controls whether to use ASCII-only filenames for the html files so that they can be transferred to other filesystems without compatibility issues.
• Destination file/directory
Specify the file or folder where the generated export files should be stored.
XML has no specific setting (yet)
For the .wiki export you can choose if the files should have system encoding or UTF-8 with or without BOM (byte-order mark). The import function of Compact can't recognize UTF-8 without BOM correctly.
Choose which version the file should have. If you use version 1 it can be read only by WikidPad 1.9beta6 and later. Version 0 can also be read by earlier versions but looses information.
• Write wiki func. pages
Store also wiki-bound functional pages in the file. Only available for format version 1 and later.
• Write saved searches
Store also saved searches in the file. Only available for format version 1 and later.
Wiki settings: General, export
