Description

11 years ago
We'd like to create redirected links for the Firefox Features and Firefox Tips page.  

URLs now:
https://www-firefox3.authstage.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/features/
https://www-firefox3.authstage.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/tips/

URLs when the site launches:
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/features/
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/tips/

They should redirect from FirefoxFeatures and FirefoxTips.  Lets also do firefoxfeatures and firefoxtips to be on the safe side.

Challenges/Questions:
1.) Can we set up these redirects so that they point to the users' correct locale as oppose to just en-US?

2.) Can we make sure these redirects are ready as soon as the website launches, even though these pages technically don't exist yet?

Thanks for your help.

Also, just to be clear, the redirects we want are:
1. http://www.mozilla.com/firefoxfeatures and http://www.mozilla.com/FirefoxFeatures both point to http://www.mozilla.com/%locale%/firefox/features/

2. http://www.mozilla.com/firefoxtips and http://www.mozilla.com/FirefoxTips both point to http://www.mozilla.com/%locale%/firefox/tips/

These redirects will be used in some press materials, so they need to be in place at launch.

Thanks!

Wil, should this be an apache redirect?  Don't you need to detect the language in the application?

We should do this in the .htaccess to /firefox/features and then they'll get another redirect that will tack on the locale.  Not an IT bug - feel free to remove infra flag and reassign to me.

Jeremy, can you do this? I don't have access to remove that flag.

Is it fine that the links go to /en-US/firefoxfeatures and /en-US/Firefoxfeatures, and /en-US/firefoxtips/ and /en-US/FirefoxTips/, instead of /en-US/firefox/features and /en-US/firefox/tips, respectively?

(The content is the same, and this seems to be the same thing we did to make the /whatsnew/ page pull content from the /firstrun/ page -- just making sure.)

As long as the end result is the same - getting people to the Features and Tips pages from those shortened links - then this is totally fine. Thanks for checking.
Cool; verified fixed.
