subpage issue

please explain what you mean by this?

My guess is User:Racer51970 might refer to a problem I've also noticed:

For instance, create an article with a sub page, like http://portlandwiki.org/Occupy_Portland/Bicyclist
This error results:
Not Found

The requested URL /Occupy_Portland/Bicyclist was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

So far the only clue that jumps out (to me) is that each of the problem sub pages I've encountered also seems to have a corresponding page separated by _-_ instead of the forward slash. Example:

http://portlandwiki.org/Occupy_Portland/Bicyclist
vs
http://portlandwiki.org/Occupy_Portland_-_Bicyclist

Sorry! Very new at this! Got a little over-ambitious...

Yes, I was getting the same "Not Found" error, and I thought the / was the cause (based on something I read somewhere else...)

Please fix or clean up in any way you see fit - or tell me how to do it, and I'm happy to do the grunt work. Rather than try and fix it on my own in the future (sorry again!) I'll just send you a message and see if you have an answer.

Please point me in the direction of any particular Wiki tutorials that you think would be helpful for me to read. I've gone over a couple on my own, but if there's one in particular you thinks worthwhile, I'm all ears.

No worries! Just was curious, now I know :-)

Hey Racer! Don't sweat it. It's not your fault. This isn't supposed to happen anyway. Unfortunately, this issue is stumping me and probably some of the other admins right now. Hopefully we'll get it figured out. Thanks for all your contributions!!

You can go back to slashing if you want to.

Just as long you don't go all "Jack the Ripper" on everyone... :-)

It looks like our uber-sysop, kotra was able to get the URLs with forward slashes (/) working again. At some point over the next couple of days we'll probably be moving all the pages with _-_ to the / format. (Don't worry, we'll automatically redirect all the moved pages.)

We're also planning to put together some kind of coherent navigational feature to make it easier for folks to get around the growing number of Occupy Portland articles. Great work, Racer!
