The Official Woodpress URL

At the risk of sounding like I think people care about such things… the official Woodpress URL has changed from http://www.snark.com/~woody/wordpress/ to http://www.snark.com/woodpress/

This change shouldn’t break anything because the old URL will redirect.

I’m announcing it just in case something somewhere DOES break, in which case changing the URL should fix it. (I’d be interested in knowing of anything that breaks… please comment on this post if you encounter a problem that you think was caused by the URL change.)

As far as my reasons for changing the URL (at further risk of seeming like I think someone cares)…

  • It’s a simpler URL to tell friends. (It’s shorter and includes no tilde.)
  • Naming the directory after the weblog itself (Woodpress) seems more appropriate than naming it after the weblog software (WordPress).
  • I’m a rebel, and they say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
