Better URI Support / Implementation (4 posts)

    I hope the next release will have better support for dynamic addresses. The current release can't seem to handle changing of ip. I think it would be easier if you can change 'wordpress address' from "http://www.whatever.com/wordpress" to "/wordpress". That way if your address changes, your page and links would still work. Right now it doesn't work well with someone hosting it on their own computer. On mines, it works locally, but not on the internet. (ie. "http://localhost/wordpress" doesn't work on the internet, but if you have "/wordpress/" or "/wordpress" then whatever you clicked will be relative to the site you are connected to. (ie. "/wordpress" can equal "http://localhost/wordpress/" or "http://www.whatever.com/wordpress" or "" without changing the codes. I would like to see this problem address because I host my own site on my computer. It runs on windows, apache, perl, dynamic ip, no dns server. This problem doesn't seem to exist in phpNuke, but I prefer WordPress if I can get it working. Right now it seem wordpress works great for static settings, not dynamic settings (regular home users).
    Thanks to whoever is reading this. I hope this problem can be addressed.

    That addressed the css style sheet problem, but not the linking and other problems. For one, I cannot use the login or register link on the internet because it points to "http://localhost..."
    I think it will be much much easier to allow people to use the "/[whatever]" instead of the full URI ("http://www.whatever.com") so that the link will correspond to the site.
    The full URI is great for static settings, a big hassle for people using a dynamic settings
