New Blog Platform


As of late afternoon yesterday, this blog and a few hundred others were moved from the old TechNet blogs platform to the new one.  All of the content, links and ratings should have flowed over.  From what I'm seeing so far, performance is also much improved.

The old layout is on the left, and the initial view of the new one is on the right.

One thing that you will notice is that the URL has changed.  The old blog URL was http://blogs.technet.com/rmilne*

The namespace was adjusted so that the URL will now be: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/rmilne.

The blog migration team have placed redirects so that all of the old links should continue to work.  If you are finding links that are not functioning after the migration, please leave a comment below so we can take a look.

Update 9-3-2016 – Reposted this from Windows Live Writer.  Format changed slightly.

Cheers,

* - Well almost.  blogs.technet.com/rmilne was the original blog platform address.  Due to a genius decision when migrating to a previous platform "/b" was added to the URL.  So Technically the blog URL was blogs.technet.com/b/rmilne,  but who really wants to remember that extra "b" or type it in.  Thankfully that goes away, and the redirects will handle this namespace as well.

  1. But I liked the /b... It reminded me my first attempt at HTLM and when you are forgetting the opening tag <...

    1. Oh my!

      Would that be using the wonderful IDE tool called notepad.exe ?
