I sometimes find it hard to understand people.
So something isn't working. And you're unhappy about it. But you don't want to give me the information I need to track down the problem.
Instead  you tell me exactly as little as last time.
Unfortunately I'm a very curious soul. So I tried to figure out what your username might be. Because, seriously, how the HECK would I debug this if I didn't know your username? Look at every log in every filesystem? Whistle while I hope for a stroke of genius? Seriously?

Anyway. I figured it out. Your super secret username does't comply with an assumption that I made after 27 years on the internet which the greedy ICAN has recently proven wrong.

It's fixed. And in order to keep your super secret extremely important username super secret I won't tell the rest of the developers what the problem was.

Please make a random change to your data and save again. That should trigger the update hook that creates the HTML export.

And the next time you run into a bug and want me to fix it, be a sport and give me the information that allows me to do it without playing Hercule Poirot. Heck, if it's so secret send it to me in personal email.


PS: yeah, I'm cranky and I'm tired. Maybe I shouldn't have snapped at you. Apologies.
