problem with link after update from Elgg 1.7 to Elgg 1.8
|Reported by:||RCerceau||Owned by:|
I´m trying to manage a problem with the link heritage from Elgg 1.7 in the new install (Elgg 1.8).
The migration from Elgg 1.7 to Elgg 1.8 brought a updating at VIEW.
In the past, some users had the pattern to copy the links in "elgg 1.7 format' inside the posts.
As you can supposed it is not working in the new version!!!!
The problem is to revert all the calls from OLD to NEW style.
An example: old link: (Elgg 1.7) http://<SITE-URL>/pg/blog/read/<blog-number>/<blog-name> new link:(Elgg 1.8) http://<SITE-URL>/blog/view/<blog-number>/<blog-name>
Put a 'RewriteRule' rule on the archive '.htaccess' could solve it. That´s the best choice?
By EVAN The problem is probably not with /pg/, it's with "read" vs "view". You should submit this as a bug since we should definitely be maintaining backwards compatibility of urls.
