Description

Background

urlfixer.org is currently a collection of static HTML files on an unmanaged server. It's only a few pages but unmaintainable even in that form.

What to change

Use our CMS like we do it for eyeo.com already - create an overall template for the pages and use localizable Markdown for the content. Use the web module for our infrastructure repository to set up a standard server for it.

Some custom configuration will be necessary - multiplexer.fcgi is listening under /submitData and needs a database to write to ([urlfixer] section of sitescripts.ini).

Is this still relevant?

I don't know what to do with this ticket.

It is, particularly with the unmanaged server in question being dead. The current content is stored in the www.urlfixer.org repository (not readable via web but I gave you access) and it would be great to restore at least that.

@Julian: If you can add that content to eyeo.com or abp.org somewhere, let us know the URL and we'll add a DNS record for redirecting urlfixer.org there.

Actually, given the latest news I started wondering whether it makes sense to revive urlfixer.org at all. I'm not sure it is possible to port URL Fixer to WebExtensions even if we invested the effort.

@fhd: Do you think it still makes sense to invest time here?

No, I think we should rather shut it down for good. I'll look into that.

Well, the site has been down for months already...
