Moving…

You SHOULD now be at www.onemanblogs.co.uk.

I’m still working on a few things, namely the redirect stuff (trying to figure out how to get it to forward to a specific post rather than the top level domain, for incoming links).

Dust should settle over coming days.

Right – the main redirect is in place. PLEASE update your bookmarks and whatnot as the redirect is NOT permanent. I’ll leave it there for a month or so, I should catch all visitors that way.

Now I just need to figure out how to get the redirect stuff to work when someone links to a post. Any pointers would be appreciated!

eg. Automatically redirect from:
https://www.gordonmclean.co.uk/index.php/archives/2007/04/28/moving-4
to
http://www.onemanblogs.co.uk/index.php/archives/2007/04/28/moving-4

Catch is that I’m not sure mod_rewrite is enabled on 34sp… still checking though!

Now, what have I forgotten??

    Err… Yes. Yes I am at that address. And my feed-Reader was full of stories this morning, stories I’d already read. But that’s cool too.

    Ahh of course, I updated the Feedburner sources, so they’ll have republished. Sorry about that everyone.

    Redirect is sort of working, but I can’t quite get the redirect from a linked post to work.. it just brings you to the top level of the site..

    I don’t think mod_rewrite is enabled by 34sp, off to check now!

    Ah, but Gordon told us the Gordon Gordon story already hans, pay attention! It is cached on Google, but any attempt to click onto the website just brings you back here, and the internal search doesn’t find it at the moment.
    Trackback is https://www.gordonmclean.co.uk/index.php/archives/2003/04/28/more-names/trackback/
    but is that working?
    I don’t think I’m clearing up matters any, am I? Sorry.

    Right. For the record, I’m using the following in my root .htaccess file:

    RedirectMatch 301 ^(.*)$ http://www.onemanblogs.co.uk

    That is working at the moment.

  12. 34sp.com have mod_rewrite on their business servers at least (I’m not using it on my personal hosting with them).

    Have you got a “RewriteEngine On” directive in your .htaccess?

    I guess if some of the redirecting is working the problem is just with your rewrite directives. I haven’t used “RedirectMatch” before, but surely you need to reuse part of the matching regular expression in the redirected URL? Something like:
    RedirectMatch 301 ^https://www.gordonmclean.co.uk/(.*)$ http://www.onemanblogs.co.uk/$1

    You’d need a line for https://gordonmclean.co.uk/… too, although if the above works then you could replace the www with .* and just have the one line.

    Drop me an email if you want to bounce any more ideas about it around…
