We need a 301 redirect set up on mozilla.org.

www.mozilla.org/mozillacareers

Redirect to:

https://wiki.mozilla.org/People/MozillaCareers?utm_medium=redirect&utm_source=mozillacareers-vanity

Thanks!

Any reason not to do this in the bedrock global.conf file that's in the repo that you control? CC'ing pmac?

https://github.com/mozilla/bedrock/tree/master/etc/httpd

Should probably look something like:

Redirect permanent /mozillacareers https://wiki.mozilla.org/People/MozillaCareers?utm_medium=redirect&utm_source=mozillacareers-vanity

Though I haven't tested it...

Good point. 

pmac: shall we just do this in bedrock even though the redirect is to a non-bedrock URL?

I really appreciate everyone's help on this so far and wanted to follow-up to see if I could get an estimated date of completion please.   I wanted to send out this vanity URL to get my team motivated in branding this URL for our events / social media recruitment.

The pull request on github is nearly done and should be merged soon and pushed out to the website. When this bug is closed, the redirect should be live. See the conversation here on the code:

Hi All,

Is it possible to make the URL in lower case? It was my mistake making it
MozillaCareers instead of mozillacareers

This is the current URL
https://wiki.mozilla.org/People/MozillaCareers
?utm_medium=redirect&utm_source=mozillacareers-vanity

I need the new one to be -
https://wiki.mozilla.org/People/mozillacareers?utm_medium=redirect&utm_source=mozillacareers-vanity

===
I apologize for the extra work I created for you.

Dakotta: you should also change the link to lowercase on the main people wiki https://wiki.mozilla.org/People. Uppercase, lowercase, or CamelCase would have all worked, but you just need to be consistent. Directories and pages on web servers are nearly always case sensitive.
