I noticed on some wiki variant an alternate naming scheme which would allow the user to put a pragma`esque code on teh first line of a page setting that page to resolve to another page.

How would this be implemented in Zwiki? As a page property, or first line of file cue?

What affects on RemoteWikiLinks, others?

This can be done in a DTML-enabled wiki like so:

<dtml-call "RESPONSE.redirect('OtherPage')">

It causes loops when you are stepping through pages with alt-N, which I found annoying.

It might be nice to do this with a delay, so it's more obvious what is happening.

Redirecting is the wrong approach --betabug, Sun, 05 Aug 2007 06:39:18 -0700 reply

I believe that anything with a redirect leave the wiki cluttered up with empty "redirect shells", much nicer would be an approach where the page would indicate that the page "Flowers" is also "catching" page request for "Roses" and "Tulips". Upon editing the "Flowers" page, those alternate names could go into a lookup table. The code for fuzzy page matching could then lookup "Roses" in there and redirect to "Flowers".
