Ive seen a couple of tiki sites with this done, however heres some interesting things to point out whilst doing a search and replace:

  • Some CSS classes begin tiki, these could cause strange problems if changed

That said, I do believe there is a wiki page here with a suitable bash script for doing the deed.

I think it could be done on apache using mod_rewrite

I use this method on my own site. Also hop over to mods.tikiwiki.org and look at the SEFURLs Search Engine Friendly URLs project.!

Very kewl idea!

That does happen if your using Windows.

You need to download the file and rename the extension to tar.gz. Winzip is problematic with the extraction of such files!
