Thanks. This is a great approach, IMHO much better than my function driven
approach. Am I right that pmWiki would then rewrite any link regardles where
it comes from (an FmtVariable, a function, link in a wiki page, or even
within php-script)?

Would it also rewrite links where $ScriptUrl is already resolved?

With $ScriptUrl= http://www.mywiki.com/wiki/pmwiki.php

<a href="http://www.mywiki.com/wiki/pmwiki.php/foo/bar?action=edit">

will be rewritten to


Very good approach.

I guess on the first hand this should mainly be sufficient, because the
problem comes by $ScriptUrl.

Fully agree. It makes installation of pmWiki on a non-Path_info system very
easy. I will do it tonight on the schlund server.
