Hi,
I't borring to see index.php in wikicarpedia all links like:
https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Main_Page

Mediawiki engine used on wikicarpedia allows to set name of engine page to something else, wiki, w, index, or something total cifferent.

Why to do that
1. It's look unprofessional to use "index.php" in wiki path
2. Shorter links
3. We can point for example to car when used for example: https://wikicarpedia.com/car/Main_Page or https://wikicarpedia.com/CAR/Main_Page
- but this is optional


Why to not do that
1. I'm glad to say, nothing


Is it have some circumstances, or what need to be done?
a) No, when it will be good prepared, this means when it will be prepared redirection which will automatically redirect user from bookmark links like:
https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Main_Page to https://wikicarpedia.com/w/Main_Page (this is example, that "w" is used)

b) All internal links doesn't use full path, so nothing need to be changed on texts.

c) When this redirect will have http code 301, then Google will know that all his records were moved to new path, so it will change his database, and all links will be point directly to new shorter path after a while (when google finished new indexing).

What do you think about it?

Ha Bumsakalaka,

It's indeed possible, although I've suggested it sometimes. We've been tinkering to do or not do it. I'm fine with changing it to even no index. We could even do: https://wikicarpedia.com/Main_Page.

I would lean towards hiding it entirely.

After some trial and errors, the wiki is now available under: https://wikicarpedia.com/car/Main_Page. All old URLs are still working with a redirect to the new format.
