What did you do? ================ 1. Moved the "TV app layout guide" page from https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/TVs_connected_devices/App_Layout_Guildline to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Apps/Design/Firefox_OS_TV_UX/App_layout_guide What happened? ============== The page has ended up at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/TVs_connected_devices/App_Layout_Guildline the following URL https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Apps/Design/Firefox_OS_TV_UX/App_layout_guide redirects back to the first one. What should have happened? ========================== the page should be at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Apps/Design/Firefox_OS_TV_UX/App_layout_guide Is there anything else we should know? ======================================
The move didn't happened because you used the zone vanity url as the destination (no page move visible in the revision dashboard, and you likely didn't get the e-mail saying it has been completed). I moved it to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Apps/Design/Firefox_OS_TV_UX/App_layout_guide and all is ok (the vanity URL kicks in automatically.

I'd never heard the term "vanity URL" before, but I'm assuming you're talking about the version without Web/ included inside it? d'oh ;-) Thanks J-Y - I'll know how to fix this now if it ever crops up again.
Oh that's just me calling these like this (a remnant of a former community project I was contributing to and helped managed). More than "without Web/", it is "without /docs/". (theoretically we could have https://dmo/Web/XYZ without the docs. These URL are a nightmare. We shouldn't have bent to accept them, but some people (outside our teams) were so aggressive…
I don't know - I think they are a fairly good idea for usability; you just to be a bit mindful of them. This is the first time I've been tripped up by them, probably cos' I was tired and not paying attention.
They *may* be good for usability, but we did a MVP for them and then "forgot" to finish the future. We had ~20-30 bugs relating to people getting 404 from Marketplace, DevTools, … Lost so many hours already.
