Subject: Domain online
Good news. The .wiki top level domain went live a while ago and with the help of the good people at I was able to secure for us. already forwards to

Additionally, I spent some hours today to set it up as a specialized URL shortener for DokuWiki.

Here's how it works:

You can put any page name after the domain name and the system tries to find a matching wiki page on It searches the root namespace and the faq:, plugin:, devel:, config:, template: and install: namespaces (in that order). It also tries singular and plural forms and a bit of fuzzy matching. If it doesn't find anything matching, it will forward to our Google Custom search.


In addition to that, all users with manager permissions in the wiki can created named shortcuts (these have priority over the
automatically picked ones).


So this new domain will be mostly useful for quickly pointing users to documentation eg. in IRC chats, mails or here in the forum.
Read this if you don't get any useful answers.
