It's not gone.
It's just that Tiki doesn't seem to have been hacked yet to not use a '+' sign as a space character.
So currently all links with spaces in them are pointing to the void.

Actually this would be handled by some layers below the Tiki Wiki, PHP should do it. :)

Both ogrebullet tutorials are dead

http://www.ogre3d.org/tikiwiki/OgreBull ... =Libraries

You're right replacing all + by %20 on windows resolves the problem (i also have to remove the &... part)

The following links work :
http://www.ogre3d.org/tikiwiki/OgreBull ... torial%201
http://www.ogre3d.org/tikiwiki/OgreBull ... torial%202

It can be solved internally by turning off pretty URLs, but that's not really the ideal solution.

They chose some brain-dead options when they decided to throw in their pretty URL feature.
It's too bad, because there is no way one can migrate from MediaWiki to Tiki without a solid URL rewrite scheme. :(
That worked so-so with Apache, and other non-conforming web servers, but now - on a proper server - we're screwed.

Personally, I don't care about pretty URLs, but we need to take care not to break any incoming links..

http://www.ogre3d.org/tikiwiki/Building+Ogre
is missing, if i just replace the + with %20 it works, but this is very annoying to have to do every time

edit: every page that uses + for spaces does not work, please fix this

It is possible to add a space in the place of the "+", but the url's with a "&structure=Tutorials" need to have that removed to open the pages as an example for the tutorials.
But I don't know how to remedy the menus to reflect that change.

Seems like most of the links are broken/missing since the server transfer :/

Just replace any '+' for "%20" and remove "&structure=Tutorials" parts in address. Like so:

Working:

I've re-introduced the Tiki hack which deals with '+' characters in the URL when running on Nginx. So URLs like this work again: http://www.ogre3d.org/tikiwiki/RTS+Sample+App

However, when a URL has something like '&structure=Tutorials' on the end will not work. I'm not sure if there's a way to get rid of that in the Tutorials page, jacmoe do you know what adds it?

This whole problem is caused by Tiki generating URLs which are not correct as per the RFC standards ('+' is not allowed outside a query string) and the way that Nginx processes them makes this not work. The hack I've added works for now, but it's not perfect - really Tiki needs to fix this. Hopefully jacmoe can help them with that :)

Actually, since a lot of the links that are being produced by Tiki aren't working because of the '&structure=blah' option, I've disabled Clean URLs in Tiki for the moment.

Please see the above. You can't use old short links with '+' in them and a 'structure=' parameter anymore because Tiki generates them incorrectly.

I've stopped Tiki generating short links for now so it should not be generating the kinds of links you've posted here. If you've found them, they've probably been manually created and if so, please tell us where the links are (not where they point) so that the link itself can be fixed.

I might not be the first to notice, but the 'installing and using SDKs' and 'series of tutorial' links in http://www.ogre3d.org/download/source and http://www.ogre3d.org/download/sdk seem to use a use a wiki URL type that's not (or no longer) supported. These links might be the first ones that new people try after downloading Ogre, so if someone could make them point to a correct page on the tikiwiki instead, that would be great.
