Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMMONSSITE-75) Revert to short URLs for the component sites
Date Tue, 26 Mar 2013 23:57:15 GMT


Sebb commented on COMMONSSITE-75:

All the POM url entries would need to be reverted, and all the sites regenerated unless some
way was found to move the existing ones and adjust all the internal links to the pages currently
above /proper in the hierarchy.
We are lucky in that these links are mainly at top level, and it seems that additional ../
levels are ignored, so it might not be necessary to adjust all the links immediately.

Also, some links (e.g. in index.html pages) have been changed to use the /proper/commons-name
These would also need to be changed back.
However this could be done at leisure, assuming that the reverse Redirects were in place.

I do agree that the new URLs are harder to use.

> With the recent site update the components are now published at the URL:

> That doesn't make very friendly URLs. "commons" is displayed twice, in the subdomain
and before the component name. We should at least have:
> {code}|sandbox|dormant)/<componentname>{code}
> And for the components in Commons Proper we should drop "proper" from the path such that
we are back with the same, short, friendly URLs:
> {code}<componentname>{code}
> or
> {code}|dormant)/<componentname>{code}
