Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9768) Redirect old URLs to new URLs
Date Fri, 09 Oct 2015 20:34:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-9768?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14951149#comment-14951149

Jan Piotrowski commented on CB-9768:
------------------------------------

If it isn't permanent, e.g. the old URL will be used for something different, you should use
302 instead of 301. This will keep the browser from caching them. 

But I think the change for the docs are permanent, so this is a clear case for 301.

> Lots of old pages (e.g. https://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/4.0.0/guide_hybrid_plugins_index.md.html)
are still listed in Google as they are of course very widespread and linked to. The new website
obviously recognized these and knows where the new site is:
> > It looks like the content has moved here.
> which links to https://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/4.0.0/guide/hybrid/plugins/index.html.
> To improve the user experience and also tell Google where it finds the correct new version
of this page,so it will link to these directly in the future, these should automatically be
redirected using a 301 Redirect header:
