Thanks for the mention. And, I’m glad this hotfix plug-in helped.
Unlike the trouble ticket (core.trac) states, this is NOT limited to IIS installations. Well over a thousand sites are using my plugin now … or the original prototype function … and the count grows every day … as more folks upgrade to WP 3.1+. And, very few of the folks who’ve contacted me have IIS setups. Most are LAMP. Further, WP has closed that trouble ticket relegating it to a non-issue.
On the plug-in page you’ve mentioned, I’ve got several tips for those who can repair the WP bug without having to use the plug-in. These work for a few installations. But, as you state, it would be better to not have to have a plug-in for WP to function correctly.
The good news is that the my plug-in should work in perpetuity … because of the way it’s coded to process internal URI’s. The bad news is that … as you mention … it does alter the displayed URL in the address bar. But … the original links do work … they’re just translated by the plug-in.
