I set up a tikiwiki site for my new project, however when i attempt to link directly to a wiki page, it goes to http://sakuraengine.com/HomePage rather than the proper url http://sakuraengine.com/tiki-index.php?page=HomePage. How do I fix this?

  • Personally, I would have thought that the first URL would have been the far better option. – womble Aug 11 '11 at 6:09
  • What, since when clean URLs are NOT the preferred option? Better for users, better for search engines, everybody wins. – Janne Pikkarainen Aug 11 '11 at 6:26
  • the issue isn't the url itself, i would love for that url to work. however i get an error 404 whereas the second one i do not. – Andrew Aug 11 '11 at 19:59

The problem was that i had to rename _htaccess to .htaccess to enable short urls. HAHA! fixed it immediately, now /homepage works


You probably have the search engine friendly url option turned on. You should be able to disable this in your admin panel, though I don't see why you would want to do that.
