Blog Note: 'Redirecting' issue

Posted by Dave Fratello on Thursday, June 18th, 2009 at 11:02pm.

MBC just switched over 100% to the use of our custom domain at www.mbconfidential.com a couple of weeks ago, and now some of you may be seeing a new problem.

If you go to the "old" link (http://mbcon.blogspot.com), you will see a message from Blogger: "You're about to be redirected" with some slightly scary warnings about how MBC has not be checked for viruses, etc. Previously, the redirection was automatic, with no warnings like this.

It's OK to say "yes" to the question "Do you wish to be redirected?" You'll come straight to the site.

You may also see this message if clicking on a link to a past MBC story that has the "blogspot.com" root.

Word from the techies is that this is Blogger's new bug this week, nothing specific to MBC nor even to the fact that we switched to the custom domain recently. They're working on it. These are the Google guys, so we're thinking they'll fix it.

Meantime, it's not a bad idea to update your bookmarks to use the new URL.
