Kwiki::CoolURI - makes the Kwiki url cleaner
$ cd /path/to/kwiki $ kwiki -add Kwiki::CoolURI
Changes the internal links that Kwiki create. Instead of /index.cgi?SandBox, it will just be /SandBox.
It only changes the url for the display plugin. Edit will still look like /index.cgi?action=edit&page_name=SandBox.
Kwiki needs to be able to read request on the form /SandBox. With Apache this can be solved by putting the following mod_rewrite config in a .htaccess file in the directory where index.cgi is located.
RewriteEngine on RewriteCond $1 !(css/|icons/|index.cgi|local/|palm90.png|plugin/|theme/) RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.cgi?action=display&page_name=$1 [L]
If you add new top directories, or files, that you still want to be readable, you have to add them in the RewriteCond.
Does not currently fix the redirect that for instance happens after an edit.
Should use new Kwiki 0.37 hooks.
The mod_rewrite config could probably be better.
The code is just copied from the original methods and slightly changed to output different urls. If Kwiki had a way to configure what the link urls should look like, this plugin wouldn't be needed.
