If I want to make a link to a local pdf-file I put the file into my scrdir and use the usual wikilink syntax. However if I put only a symbolic link into the scrdir instead of the actual file, it doesn't work. Is there a way to make that ikiwiki handles symbolic links in this situation?

No, because disallowing symbolic links is a security feature which can't be disabled.

I use ikiwiki only locally for my personal use. So it wouldn't be a security issue for me. Perhaps there is some "hack" to achieve what I want?
