Motivation

Renaming a field may cause existing links to the content to break. It would be good if Gentics Mesh could handle old urls and redirect to the correct content.

Details

Use versioning to send redirects when the url has changed e.g.:

  • version 1: -> /blog/news
  • version 2 (live): /blog/news-item

If you request /blog/news Gentics Mesh will tell you, that it has been moved to /blog/news-item (basically moved permanently)

Problems

Situations could occur in which it is not known which redirect to choose. (e.g.: two nodes have been renamed in alternating way)

Note that moving nodes should also cause redirects.
