[jira] [Updated] (SOLR-10595) Redirect Confluence pages to new HTML Guide

JIRA jira@apache.org

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-10595?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Hoss Man updated SOLR-10595:
    Attachment: solr_name_to_new.map.txt

bq. An elegant approach would be that ...

I'm not really sure that understand what you're suggesting, or how it would be beneficial in the long run -- but it definitely seems to be off topic for this particular jira given the concensus so far... Did you mean to post that in the LUCENE-7924 issue i spun off?


Ugh ... it's been far too long since i had to do non-trivial stuff with mod_rewrite.  My RewriteMap+RewriteCond-fu was weak and took far longer then i expected to get these working...

I've tested the attached solr_redirects.conf as best I could using a mock-server, with the attached *.map.txt files generated using the following perl scripts...

perl -nle 'chomp; @x = split /\s+/, $_, 3; print "$x[0] /$x[1].html"' < ../new-page-urls.txt > solr_id_to_new.map.txt

perl -nle 'chomp; @x = split /\s+/, $_, 3; $x[2] =~ s/\s+/\+/g; print "$x[2] /$x[1].html"' < ../new-page-urls.txt > solr_name_to_new.map.txt

...and then manually tweaking the entry for "/" and adding the header comments.

I'll open an INFRA ticket with a summary of what we want and link back here.

> Once the new Ref Guide is live, we may want to redirect pages from Confluence to the new HTML version.
> I'm undecided if this is the best idea, I can see pros and cons to it. On the pro side, I think it helps firmly establish the move away from Confluence and helps users adjust to the new location. But I could see the argument that redirecting is overly invasive or unnecessary and we should just add a big warning to the page instead.
> At any rate, if we do decide to do it, I found some Javascript we could tell Confluence to add to the HEAD of each page to auto-redirect. With some probably simple modifications to it, we could get people to the right page in the HTML site: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/How-to-apply-redirection-on-all-pages-on-a-space/qaq-p/229949
