One more test post

Jul 7, 2013 • posted by Michael Hartl

The recent switch to Heroku ferreted out an annoying bug in the Rails Tutorial News Feed, namely, hard-coded GitHub Pages URLs deep in the site’s configuration. All the links on the site itself were fine, but the Atom feed had the obsolete GitHub Pages addresses. I’m glad to find out about this, as I certainly never meant to expose those URLs, preferring to use custom subdomains (e.g., news.railstutorial.org) whenever possible. So, the prophecy in my last post that this sort of issue wouldn’t soon happen again has gone unfulfilled, but I’m optimistic that this is indeed the last time.

I’ve changed over the feed to use the proper news.railstutorial.org URLs, but it might take a few days for all the caches with the old feed to expire. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for all the noise.
