Re: Many links broken after update to 0.56


I found out this weekend I had the same problem in one notebook:
suddenly I get "Calender" as sub page under pages where I've linked to a
date. They seemed to be interpreted as relative paths for pages now.

The suggested "zim --index -V /path/to/notebook" seems to have fixed the
problem for me, thanks!
