Description: I'd like to request an easy-to-use feature for referring to uploaded files that are located in the upload directory of another group (or page).

My current solution is the definition of an intermap.txt entry that consists of the URL of the wiki supplemented by the /pub/uploads part.

I'm not sure whether that's a good solution, though, that's why I'm reporting it here.

If it is, maybe it should be standardized, providing a virtual intermap entry uploads: for each installation. It would default to the upload directory without requiring the absolute URL to be entered.

I'm suggesting that because it was mentioned in http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/UploadGroups.

I changed the status to closed since it obviously is :-) --Henning March 01, 2005, at 12:06 PM
