[quote=“Cerberus, post:1, topic:62”]While MediaWiki is relatively linked and works great, the forums seem to be absolutely linked and this is an annoyance. Is it possible to configure SMF to also relatively link? I mean otherwise, one needs to manually copy the absolute URL to a particular SMF link, paste it and replace the actual domain for every single link.
EDIT: thinking about this further, is it even possible to actually create content (wiki articles/forum posts) via the .onion(s)? I mean, is it a two-way sync OR an alias (would somehow defeat the purpose of the onion) OR … hopefully valid questions that come to my mind here.[/quote]
I have a workaround for accessing the forum via .onion more easily, using HTTPS Everywhere and user rules.
<ruleset name="Whonix Onion">
<target host="www.whonix.org" />
<target host="kkkkkkkkkk63ava6.onion" />
<rule from="^http(s)?://(www\.)?whonix\.org/" to="http://kkkkkkkkkk63ava6.onion/"/>
into a file named “WhonixOnion.xml” in [Tor browser folder]/Data/Browser/profile.default/HTTPSEverywhereUserRules/ and restart the browser.
Now all your whonix.org traffic should be pointed at the onion. If you want to go back to whonix.org (and not .onion), the HTTPS Everywhere icon in the upper right will show your ruleset with a check box. Uncheck it, and continue browsing the .org!
The .onion and .org sites are identical, and edits / posts made on one domain will be reflected on the other. As Patrick said, the .onion isn’t really for privacy as it is for censorship-resistance and fallback in case DNS gets wonky.
For being a bit hacky, it’s a pretty solid solution - HTTPS Everywhere is clever and it does the rewrite before making the request, so the browser never asks for whonix.org, only the .onion.
