This seems to have worked - many thanks. My wiki
is now in .../
mediawiki/ and short urls aliasing this to .../wiki/ work with the
The only oddity is that paths to images don't
retain my short urls. If
an article with path .../wiki/<article name> contains an image
<imagename.jpg> then clicking on the image within the article takes me
to .../wiki/File:<imagename.jpg> as I'd intuitively expected. But
clicking on the image again here takes me to .../mediawki/images/
<imagename.jpg> where "mediawiki" now replaces the alis "wiki".
You are going to the actual file, so it sends you to the path in which
it lives, which is on mediawiki/images/. Nothing wrong there.
Don't confuse the image path with the path of an article with the same
name as the image.
So, should I expect short urls to apply to my
images now I've
simplified my directory naming or do you think my implementation is
behaving normally as regards image urls?
It's working right.
Many thanks for your help here. This is all in
much better shape now!
My next step is to see if I can understand how to run Platonides'
script for moving my single images folder into hashed structures.
Which script are you refering? An old one from the list?
I presume that running the script itself just involves copying the
code into a file but I need to contemplate the remaining instructions
If I have any queries I'll check for past posts and then post any new
ones in a separate thread.
