The site is redirecting just fine.
>>>I have recently moved my wiki from
>>>http://www.knitting-and.com/wiki to http://www.knitting-and.com/w and
>>>the entries to still show at http://www.knitting-and.com/wiki

Since you changed your directory from /wiki to /w, the long URLs are
http://www.knitting-and.com/w/index.php?title=Main_Page and it works
just fine. /wiki is a rewritten fake directory now, it doesn't really
If you call /wiki/index.php?.... whatever, anything after the ? is
truncated and index.php shows up as a 404, uncreated article. This
behavior is correct. Rewrite is parsing and preforming correctly as far
as I can tell. Even &action=edit shows me the source of a page.
