Hey Posterous! What happened to the page redirects between my own posterous websites?


I just noticed that Posterous has deactivated the Page Redirects between my own Posterous websites. What do I mean? Well, I use Instagram. I love it. I love it so much I created the spinstagram.posterous.com blog. There is a minor issue though, Instagram only lets you post to you main blog. My main blog is spyros.posterous.com. For months now this has been only a minor issue, as I mentioned before. I just posted directyly to my spyros.posterous.com blog and then I moved the post from that posterous site to spinstagram.posterous.com. Posterous took care of the redirects and all my cross networking links still worked. For example a post I posted originaly at http://spyros.posterous.com/good-morning-810 when moved to spinstagram.posterous.com would automatically redirect to http://spinstagram.posterous.com/good-morning-810

Something has changed now!

All the latest photos DON’T redirect anymore but instead they just link to a 404 Error Page.

So I want to say I am sorry if I have been posting bad links lately. It is not my fault but it is because Posterous cancelled the redirects.

Posterous, what’s up? Is there a way to have my sites work like before? I want my redirects back please!

    to be honest, i didn’t know that we maintained the redirects if you moved a post between sites. But we’ll check it out and I’ll let you know what we find.Sorry about that!

    Can you show me a link that DOES redirect?

    No, not any more. I used to be able to simply change the spyros.posterous.com/whatever to spinstagram.posterous.com/whatever and vise versa and the redirect worked, but now all the redirects of the pics that I have on one site that used to work, don’t any more. So no, I can’t give you a pic that works any more because none work.
