TWiki understands now Web.TopicName and Web/TopicName interchangeably in the extended URL path and in the GoBox.

The following URLs point to the same topic:

http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/WebNotify Default URL
http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins.WebNotify Useful for InterwikiPlugin links
TWiki:Plugins/WebNotify Old interwiki link
TWiki:Plugins.WebNotify New interwiki link ( preferred)
http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/WebHome?topic=Plugins.WebNotify Go box URL of "Plugins.WebNotify" (default)
http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/WebHome?topic=Plugins/WebNotify Go box URL of "Plugins/WebNotify"

Thanks for responding to Support.GoBoxForwardSlash so thoroughly and giving the CVS:lib/TWiki.pm link. It's extremely educational as I try my best to come up to speed and help out more.

Just an observation at this point, not an RFE or bug report But it does not understand the slash in double square bracket syntax:


Or without the double square bracket:

Randy, I think in the square brackets this is a valid point. I agree with you.

On the other point, I do not agree. Simply two words with a / between them? The semantics (meaning) are not clear. Perhaps if you checked if the thing before the slash matched a webname it would be OK, but the work for making this would take some time. If you submit a patch to parts of the code that need to change it would be wonderful.

Grant, Thanks for the response and the vote of confidence. wink Perl and the TWiki code base are on my list of things to learn, but far enough down that it will probably be several years.

Just to clarify, I was not proposing that two words with a slash be treated as a link, only observing that it was not, and yes, I think (without thinking about it) that I agree that it should not be treated as a link. I also think I agree that it would be appropriate for the square bracket syntax to be treated as a link.

I often wonder why '.' was chosen over '/'. Computer savvy people intuitively understand '/' as being a namespace containment construct; (Only BBC ADFS users would recognise '.' as being one - everyone else uses '.' to designate document types).
