A Peek Backstage
By Steven Chan (Oracle Development) on Jul 01, 2008
Our blogging hiatus is over and we’re back online. I’m delighted that Oracle’s cutover to our shiny new blogging system went smoothly. Kudos to our Oracle Asia R&D for all of their efforts in getting everything over the Rubicon, including your valuable comments and questions. For those interested in these kind of things, we’re now running on Six Apart’s Movable Type Enterprise 1.5 running on top of Oracle’s own Content DB. Very cool stuff. Things will get even more interesting later this year when we upgrade to Movable Type Enterprise 4.
Some Housekeeping, AlasGoogle tells me that there are many thousands of inbound links into this blog. My blogging team and I are deeply flattered. Sally Fields’ now-immortal Oscar acceptance speech springs to mind. If you’ve linked to this blog, I’m afraid that our conversion to our new system may trigger some housekeeping for you:
- If you’ve linked to my top page (http://blogs.oracle.com/schan), those links will continue to work.
If you’ve linked to specific articles, links in this format will continue to work:
- If you’ve linked to specific articles with URLs that had department names in them, they might work: http://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/newsItems/departments/patching/2007/06/07 Geek Explanation: Our excellent Oracle Asia R&D team that handled this blog migration has put a redirect layer from the old article URLs to Movable Type’s new URLs. However, articles with multiple departments (e.g. “Release 11i” and “Business Intelligence” generate multiple URLs, and it may not be possible to redirect all of them.
- If you’ve linked to specific articles that had special tags attached (due to our old UserLand blogging software quirks), these will likely still work: http://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/2006/05/29?print-friendly=true
