Web redirects and secure folders

I’ve been busy today.

The URL redirects have been applied to www3.wou.edu, so you can test them on the new server. This means, for instance, that you can get to the Registrar’s website bu going to http://www3.wou.edu/registrar even though the real address of the site is http://www3.wou.edu/provost/registrar. There are 402 of these redirects on the server; someday I need to go in and try to figure out which are no longer used and delete them, but that will have to wait a while.

Also, secure folders should work. Any web pages that are password-protected on the current server are now also protected on the new one. Use the same username and password as on the current server; the only exception is if the username is the same as your WOU login. If so, you need to use your real WOU password, not the separate one you used for logging in to that webpage.

The new server gives us some new options for secure folders, by the way; we’ll be able to specify “any WOU user”, for instance, or have people log in with their normal WOU usernames and passwords.

And I’m still plugging away on the editing permissions script; I’m guessing that will be ready by the end of the week.
