Hi, Just checking if there is any news about this redirection ?

As the Italian community indicated, there are some great tools around (like https://github.com/octalmage/WordPress.org-Also-Viewing) that really help moderators/administrators in dealing with the forum threads. But with the redirection not set some of those tools do not work (correctly).

Thanks, Pascal.

FWIW; The extension you mentioned won't work on international forums, as it's specifically set for only urls matching *://wordpress.org/support/topic/*.

Yeah @dd32 it's true.
the idea was to make a fork of it for local forums, and the first step we thought could be adding a variable for local adding a prefix *.wordpress.org/support .

And that could be a nice chance to make an alias pointing from it.wordpress.org/forums to it.wordpress.org/support not only for standard convention but for practical needs :)

Hope someone could make it,

Thanks :)

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Requested nginx rewrites in https://make.wordpress.org/systems/2017/02/19/nginx-rewrite-from-forums-to-support/ but that's low prio according to systems so I added a PHP redirect in [dotorg12947].
