Nearly a year ago, I'd asked this question. Amazingly, the project is moving forward faster than a speeding snail. Right now, we've got all of the data imported as both Word and HTML docs, 'cause no one's really decided which direction they're going on that for sure, and I did come up with a list that cross-references all the documents to each other as needed. That was an interesting feat.
The idea of Wikis is rearing it's head again, and I've got an idea that I want to float out there for feedback, even if that feedback is "are you out your gourd?"
Luckily, all the documents lived in one directory, and are now in one doc library. We ended up with about 3200 of them. All of the hyperlinks are just
<a href="foo.html">foo</a> with no path specified. So here's my idea: a quick Powershell script to global replace all the
<a href=" with
If I'm doing my math right, hyperlinks to other documents magically become
[[foo.html|foo]]. I can then convert to plaintext to strip off the rest of the HTML coding leaving me with a body of documents that are "Wiki-fied" and will theroetically link themselves when a link is clicked.
However: it appears that SPWiki creates ASPX files, and it does NOT appear that there's a way to mass copy a bunch of files into the Wiki page library. Does anyone know if there is a way to move these docs into a Wiki en masse? or create a document library that can be CONVERTED to a wiki once everything's there?
Interested to hear thoughts.
