Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9768) Redirect old URLs to new URLs
Date Thu, 08 Oct 2015 16:41:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-9768?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14948969#comment-14948969

jcesarmobile commented on CB-9768:
----------------------------------

Be careful with 301 redirects, some browsers cache them and once it's cached you'll never
get the new page in case you remove the redirect or change it to redirect to other page

That happened to me with phonegap docs page, until I realized last week, I was getting the
old docs page on firefox but the new on safari

> 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:
