Link workbench

These are a set of pages that help us think through and test wiki link handling, both for Massive Wiki Builder, and Massive Wiki in general.


Concepts include:

  • page name - the title of the page, used in wiki links
    • filename - when the wiki is stored in a filesystem, the name of the file that contains the page
  • slug - the page identifier, usually a transformation of the page name / filename, used for a page's URL
  • filename mangling - the process of turning an arbitrary filename into a URL-compliant slug. less frequently, might refer to transformations from page name to file name, respecting filesystem limitations on characters or length. more usually, a filesystem-based wiki will prevent people from creating page titles that cannot also be file names.
