Description

To get nice URLs like http://wiki.mythtv.org/Main_Page it just needs:

1) "DirectoryIndex? index.php" in the apache config 2) swap the mount at "www.mythtv.org/wiki" with the redirect at "wiki.mythtv.org" 3) somehow tell mediawiki about the nice URLs 4) add a redirect from wiki.mythtv.org/index.php* to /

result is nice short URLS while all old bookmarks and links still work and take you to the new location

(filed under documentation as wiki, website or infrastructure are not available)

Reassigning to the person that can decide if this is worthwhile or not.

I think things are slightly better after the new web site upgrade. I guess if no one has looked at this proper in 12 months then no one really cares and it's as good as it's going to get :-)
