Redirects and such

2022. 10. 28. 01:14 | \English \blog

I finally realized that instead of redirecting everything from my old domain (dschorsaanjo.hu) to zotn.hu (i.e. this website's home page) is stupid; why not keep the path as-is instead of erasing it?

To be fair, at the time when I made the switch my main concern was that no one will find the new one (is there even such a person?), so I just did the first thing that came to mind. Now, just 3 minutes ago, I wanted to look up the lyrics of ale ala li pona tawa mi and I got a link to the toki pona section of my old website from google. Yes, I did use google to look up my own lyrics -- this website partially exist to archive, and to have easy access to my "published works". Anyway, I clicked on it and it redirected me to the home page and it finally clicked; why don't I preserve the path? I'm still using the same CMS, same internal stucture, the content had been lifted from there and was mostly unchanged and even if it was changed, maybe 1 or 2 titles were affected, so most of the stuff should still work.

Why do I feel like I'm rumbling?


NOTE TO SELF: when you do something with the old domain that I know you want to keep, redirect every compatible URL to this website -- might restrict you a bit if you want to use /english, /hungarian, /contact, /toki-pona, /about and in some other cases, but it's still better than worrying about losing potential people interested in your work.
