New content locations on X.com
All in all, this is a good thing. But there are some issues that you, as a developer community member, should be aware of. The biggest in my opinion is the fact that many content locations have now changed, and redirects are not in place for all of them to automagically transport you to the correct new location.
Here are a couple of examples I've bumped up against with my own writing and content:
First, my blog posts formerly appeared in the DevZone section at
https://www.x.com/developers/paypal/devzone/blog with date strings included in their path; they are now located at
https://www.x.com/developers/community/blogs/billday without any date strings.
For example, my July highlights post which was formerly at
https://www.x.com/developers/paypal/devzone/blog/2011/08/04/summertime-and-the-highlights-are-easy is now at
Second, my X.commerce articles were formerly published with URLs such as
https://www.x.com/docs/ with a
DOC number at the end, e.g.
https://www.x.com/docs/DOC-3752 for the final part of my "Alternative Payment Systems" series.
Articles are now published at URLs beginning with
https://www.x.com/content/, with the hyphenated article title appended. For the article above, for instance, the new location is
What should you do if you're looking for a particular piece of content and can't find it? I'd suggest searching for the title of the missing item using the "search x.commerce ecosystem" search box in the upper right of X.com pages. So far that's turned up everything I needed to find.
What other rough edges have you found in the site redesign? Please give the X.com team your feedback by leaving a comment on the full X.com post.
