Yeah I would have liked to redirect the old urls to the new ones ...
but I have to put my hands up and say I couldn't figure out how to do
it ... that remains a black art to me. I don't understand what you
mean about adding a new method to a controller though. Will
something go horribly wrong if I deploy the duplicated lines in
routes to a live platform? I was planning the live migration for
It seems to work locally. URLs are displayed as localhost/articles/y/
m/d/title so crawlers should pick up the posts with that taxonomy,
and any new posts I test have those URLs. But if I try to navigate
to an old post (imported for testing, but lets say it was from a
Google referral) it still handles the old taxonomy I had (localhost/y/
m/d/title). And you're right in saying this only works because I had
the /year/month/date/title taxonomy both on Textpattern and my
earlier Wordpress blog ... the only difference between the two is the
addition of '/article/' in the link.
