Description: Should [[Microsoft Word 6.0]] produce a link to Microsoft Word 6/0 ?
I can see why it does, but is it the right behaviour?
At present, periods are not allowed in pagenames. --Pm
Also, are there any plans to deprecate the Section.Page notation before 2 final in favour of Sectiom/Page (or the other way around)?
There are no plans to deprecate either Section.Page or Section/Page as they do different things. Section.Page displays as "Section.Page", while "Section/Page" displays as "Page". This is by design. --Pm
Another cleanup question - are there plans to standardise on NewPageName/NewPageName or NewPageName/HomePage? I prefer the second since it's immediately obvious to new users what is happenning (as it is with the slash instead of a dot in a link)
No, there are no plans to change the current implementation here either, as there are situations where each is appropriate. However, a site administrator can set the
$PagePathFmtvariable to choose one or the other locally:
# PmWiki's default
$PagePathFmt= array('$Group.$1', '$1.$1', '$1.
$DefaultName'); # for Group.Group only
$PagePathFmt= array('$Group.$1', '$1.$1'); # for Group.HomePage only
$PagePathFmt= array('$Group.$1', '$1.
