Add support for URL aliases (redirect out-dated links)
It turns out that keys of tracks, committees and events often get changed after they were communicated to the outside world.Submitted by Elmer van Chastelet on 7 May 2015 at 14:57
The system should redirect old URLs to the correct ones.
My idea is to introduce the notion of aliases. Whenever one changes a key from
oldKeybecomes an alias for
newKeyand the system will redirect URLs with
oldKeyin it. Aliases will be shown and can also be deleted on the desired manage page. I’ll start with supporting tracks, committees, events and persons (in case 2 person profiles are merged).
