Wiki urls

Ibiblio will be migrating the sites they host to a new server one of these 
days. We are in the queue, but I don't know exactly when it might happen. 
When they do that, hopefully our wiki will be more stable and quicker. Some 
days I am sure you all have found it is very slow or times out. Other days 
pictures load very quickly.

All of our wiki pages can now can be accessed one of three ways. Using the 
example of our home page for our wiki:………

After we are moved the first name will be phased out. For several month the 
urls will be redirected, but after that they will generate an error 
message. This means that urls in our archives won't work and urls on our 
wiki pages won't work as they have been written in the past. We are in the 
process of changing all the file urls on each page. Not all of our pages 
need to be changed, but most of them do (more than 300). Susan Hayek, Jay 
Yourch, and Mark McDonough are helping me with this project. Those of you 
who link to our web page could already change the url.

It would be a great help to us if when you add new pictures to the wiki 
that you use the name that will work in the future when you add the picture 
to a wiki page:…
That way we won't have to change a page that is already finished. Someone 
has just added some very nice Habranthus pictures. They haven't 
disappeared. I've capitalized the file name and moved them to the 
Habranthus folder. To illustrate the new urls I'd like you to use, these 
three are now:………

And once they get on a page they will be on:…

For those of you who are moaning that you will have to relearn how to do 
this, I am very sorry, but it is out of our control. Remembering should ultimately be easier than 
. I have added the correct name to the… page so that 
when you upload a file it will be a reminder for you. Unfortunately until 
they move us the message that is automatically generated when you are 
successful will have the old name. Sigh...

Thanks for your help in this.
