Introduced in UseModWiki 1.0.
$SlashLinks = 0; # 1 = use script/action links, 0 = script?action
This variable only controls how page links are generated, but doesn't make the script actually interpret them (as one might expect).
Q: How to use $SlashLinks?
copied from WikiBugs/SlashLinksDoNotWork:
The SlashLinks setting is intended to be used together with server-side URL rewriting, like Apache's RewriteRules. (See WikiPatches/URLRewrite for an old patch with sample Apache rules.) I did not document this requirement, however, which led to confusion. If I have time, I will try to add more documentation for the 1.1 release (probably in January 2004). --CliffordAdams
I made changes like the following to use links like example.org/mywiki/StartPage?:
If you $UseConfig then set this in the config file, if not then in the script
$SlashLinks = 1; $FullUrl = "/mywiki";
Add the hilighted line to the function InitRequest in the script
$ScriptName = pop(@ScriptPath); # Name used in links $ScriptName = $FullUrl if ($FullUrl ne ''); $IndexInit = 0; # Must be reset for each request
In the configuration file for Apache:
RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^/mywiki$ /cgi-bin/wiki.pl [PT,L] RewriteRule ^/mywiki/(.*)$ /cgi-bin/wiki.pl?$1 [PT,L]
I hope this helps and I've found all the changes again.
