Rationalise URLs

Is there a way of configuring the wiki so it doesn't have 'index.php5?title=' in the URL, for example the main page should be


At the moment probably not, best not to get hung up on details like that for now. I need to get FTP access to the directory mediawiki is installed under before I can tweak any of the manual settings. Guesser 19:12, 14 October 2010 (BST)
OK, URL rewriting is now turned on, if it causes any problems though I'll have to put it back. Guesser 19:30, 14 October 2010 (BST)
Aaaaaaaand I've found a problem. It breaks pages with a "/" in the title because it changes the url to /sinclairfaq/foo/bar. the folder foo does not exist of course. For the sake of shortening a URL slightly I can't be bothered. If anyone has a solution then contact me on WoS IRC.
After breaking Foggy's server and shitting bricks for a quarter of an hour I've decided that as long as I'm the one with FTP access to the wiki site (which might not be long after foggy next comes online!) there won't be any more fiddling at all. People will just have to put up with long URLs

I've uploaded a placeholder logo cause I was sick of looking at that sunflower. Perhaps we should get a few people to submit logos and then vote on them as there are plenty of arty people in the community. Then again a logo isn't really a high priority right now so perhaps leave it for now. Guesser 20:01, 14 October 2010 (BST)
