Juggler.net - Query
Whatever happened to the juggler.net email redirect service?
The most recent discussion I can find about it took place here:
Firefox will not let me follow the link the website as it is 'unsafe'.
I would like to create a juggler.net redirection account.
How can I make this dream a reality?
Any and all advice gratefully received,
Will Firefox let you go to http://juggler.net/email.shtml
If not, the most relevant bit of the page is:
To sign up for your free email diversion package, simply send an email to email@example.com telling us what you would like your Juggler.Net email address to be (eg firstname.lastname@example.org) your name, and the email address you want your email forwarded to. - Easy!
Ooh! We have a juggler.net question too:
We noticed when we mistyped the url, that the url redirect is case sensitive; ie www.juggler.net/leeds works, but www.juggler.net/Leeds doesn't.
Is there any way to turn off this case sensitivity or do we need to set up www.juggler.net/Leeds and www.juggler.net/LEEDS etc to all redirect to the Leeds Juggling Concention website?
Tried e-mailing the juggler.net volunteers a while ago, but not got a response yet
Oh don't forget Leeds Juggling Convention 17 November 2018*, more infrmation on website
* Provisional date
URLs on the internet generally are case sensitive (well, the bits after the '/' are anyway), so what you're seeing is normal, not just for juggler.net but for most of the rest of the internet as well.
Whether redirects can be made case insensitive depends on how they're done, and it looks like the details I've got for access to the system don't work any more (not surprising, I've not really had anything to do with juggler.net for several years) so I can't check.
The easiest thing to do would probably be to request multiple variations.
The usual trick is to do something like map all requests to lowercase (e.g. turn /Leeds and /LEEDS in to /leeds) and then redirect to that.
You could also map to upper (LEEDS) or ucfirst (Leeds).
So it's doable, but not common practice because most people just click on links that always have the correct casing.
