Unless I don't understand intermaps (very possible!), they will not work
for my purposes. I thought an intermap would convert a short phrase on a
Pmwiki page into a URL "prefix".
I want to be able to email somebody a URL like:
and when they click it, have them directed to:
It doesn't need to be part of Pmwiki. It could be a standalone script
accessed by a URL like:
But having it as part of Pmwiki would make maintaining the links easier.
Mind you, I suppose a standalone script could read a page or table
created by Pmwiki.
