Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-173) Be able to move files without breaking outside links
Date Tue, 07 Jun 2005 20:20:41 GMT
    [ ] 

Nicola Ken Barozzi commented on FOR-173:

Actually this is not really what I meant with this particular bug.

I mean, imagine that we have a file called 


and in site.xml we have
 <myfile label="My File" href="myfile.xml"/>

If I rename it to


I can change site.xml to contain:

 <myfile label="My File" href="mynewfile.xml"/>

and this will keep all the links to site:myfile still working.

Too bad that the actual URL has changed, so direct links to myfile.html will fail.
What I would like is that the system redirects to mynewfile.html automatically.

To do this one would have to cache the old site.xml, compare it, and put redirects to the
elements that have changed href.
