Status of Joomlaforge redirects to Joomlacode?

Post by ben-work » Wed May 16, 2007 7:20 am

Hi all,

I'm wondering if there are plans to redirect the old Joomlaforge project URL's to Joomlacode?

Eg: this link - http://forge.joomla.org/sf/projects/vmart_cb - which currently takes you to an error page - could maybe take the user to the same named project on JC??

Cheers..

Hi,

As far as I know, there are no plans to put in redirects. Since there were over 1500 projects (maybe even more), it would simply be too much work to get this done.

I can understand that. Although the thought occurs this could be scripted with a couple of lines of php - if the 'forgeoffline.html' part of the URL could be changed to a php file (and the project path passed as a variable) then the PHP could just grab the project name and redirect to it on Joomlacode - some might not work due to changed names or whatever but it could help for a lot of cases.

Eg - input URL changes from:
http://www.joomla.org/forgeoffline.html ... ROJECTNAME
to
http://www.joomla.org/forgeoffline.php? ... ROJECTNAME

Then forgeoffline.php just grabs all in 'p' after the last slash and redirects to:
http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/PROJECTNAME/

Just an idea. Cheers!
