Dear Support Staff/Community,

I am now making a local version of a Wiki for a course I am taking online. I have run into a strange problem with linking between pages, as well as links to locally stored images.

I have attached my Markdown Code for the page from which I am trying to specify a link. This file will show three instances where the only way I could get the linked image to appear was using a very cumbersome syntax as seen below:

![Fig. 4.8 Resulting Matches from](./../images/fig-4.08-example-4.3.png)

As you can see, I had to reference the current directory before stepping up the directory tree to get Marked 2 to display the image in question. There were two more such instances in the attached document.

Finally, there is an instance of linking to the calling page, which, as you will see in the attached Markdown document, used this syntax, which worked from other pages, but does not work for the attached page:

[Return to Lecture 4.21 Home](../lectures/

Finally, I attach a screenshot of the directory tree for the local wiki I am building.

Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Best wishes,

Robert Hieger

    Sorry for letting this one slip through the support cracks. I'll need to do some testing to figure out exactly what's going on here.

    Could you also let me know which Markdown processor (MMD, Discount, or custom processor) you're using?
