File names are not being replicated fpr my site replication

File names are not being replicated fpr my site replication

I have imported my home website, in order to have a local copy for testing and also in case my hosting server has issues.

I looked at the file names for the web pages copied, and they are not replicating the file names with the dashes. The files are being saved with a underscore instead of a dash. Is there a setting that I can change that would allow for the file names to be replicated exactly?

This isnt really the intended use for site import.

if you are just trying to make a backup of your site, you should use an FTP program to download the actual site files.

site import is used to download the browser output of a site that you do not have physical access to. it will download the site files in the mush the same way as loading the page into the browser and going to File -> Save As.

It is not possible to have site import not convert the dashes to underscores.
