just like a folder with 1 file.
Why does osdev.org just link to the wiki?
Why not point strait to the wiki? It would be the exact same, just no wait.

Im thinking its temporary until he can fix the front page to point directly to the wiki.

I personally do not like the change that much but it would aid in the issue of newcomers not searching before they post. ...At least I hope so :shock:

Code:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;http://wiki.osdev.org/" />

:mrgreen:

EDIT: to avoid post deletion, I'll just say this: that would be a temporary fix for having to wait for the refresh.

You can do it more simple:
Code:
<body onload = "javascript:location.href = 'http://wiki.osdev.org';"></body>


But it's better to use META tag.. :)

No, it's better to use the Location: header!

HTTP 1.1 header > Meta tag > Javascript > Pointless redirecting homepage. 8)

There are a mess load of mod_rewrite rules I need to change before I do that to keep all the old links around the web from breaking. If I just break all the links coming into the site then the Google page rank goes to hell. I'll probably get to it next month.
