[pmwiki-users] question on dot in url

after investigating further, I think that it mainly has to do with a  
proxy setup and not with the dot in the name per se.

http://www.name.org/ is a proxy, which calls http://othername.org  
(where pmwiki is installed)

I think the login OK button just generates a relative link, which is  
of no use on the proxy.  Maybe that is related to:


I would be glad to get any hints on how to resolve the issue.  All  
links (login) work well when not using the proxy.
