00106: Add cookbook entry describing relative image URLs
There needs to be a cookbook entry that describes how a wiki administrator can enable relative image urls.
I'd like to see
[[/dir/file.name]] work in the same way as a
webmaster would expect
<a href="/dir/file.name"> or
For images that were
http://foo.bar.com/img/x.gif I suggest

- Such a markup should not be restricted only to referring to local files, it should work just as well referring to a local file.
- I'm worried that simply using
[[/Dir/SomeFile]]might interfere with a page reference - primarily if we are referring to a file without an extension.
- If we ever go for page hierarchies, the syntax given above would probably interfere with this.
[[/Dir/SomeFile]]is a bit too similar to page links IMO.
- Here are some suggestions for alternate ways:
[[local:/dir/some/file]] -> /dir/some/file [[dir:/dir/some/file]] -> /dir/some/file [[file:/dir/some/file]] -> /dir/some/file [[//dir/some/file]] -> /dir/some/file [[cwd:/dir/some/file]] -> /dir/some/file [[cwd:some/file]] -> ./some/file
In a wild revelation of ignorance - John Morris offers:
Doesn't Intermap already serve this function in an acceptable manner?
maplink:imagename.ext seems pretty simple.
Would it not also suffice for the other requirements?
