[pmwiki-users] Adjust home page url to "/"

I use this to solve all my problems:

$FmtPV['$PageUrl'] = '($pn=="Main.HomePage")
  ? "$ScriptUrl/"
  : ( ($name==$group)
    ? "$ScriptUrl/$group"
    : "$ScriptUrl/$group/$name" )';
if ( strpbrk($pagename,'./') === FALSE ) $EnableFixedUrlRedirect = 0;

The first part corrects all internal links to point to Main.HomePage
as '/' instead of '/Main/HomePage' and Group.Group as '/Group' instead
of '/Group/Group'.

The second part stops PmWiki from auto-redirecting from '/Group' to
'/Group/Group' inside ResolvePageName() when it does find a matching
page. Any old links to '/Main/HomePage' etc. will of course still
