If I have a filesystem soft-link, e.g. "foo.mdwn" links to "bar.mdwn", it doesn't work. The page "foo/" does not exist.

This is too bad, because sometimes it is convenient to have several different names for the same page.

Could softlinks be handled gracefully by ikiwiki?

Soft links are explicitly not handled by IkiWiki as a security measure. If you want several names for the same page, I suggest using the meta directive to make one page redirect to another. -- Will

Will is right. I don't plan to support symlinks. done --Joey

With the appropriate template, inline can also help copy pages around DavidBremner
