Jan H√łydahl commented on SOLR-10595:
------------------------------------

I see the benefit of redirecting cwiki to 6_6 guide, and they probably outweigh 
the downsides. As time passes, the new guide will have built a reputation of 
its own.

Still, I fear that people searching for e.g. "solr function queries" in the 
future will be served an arbitrary version of the guide, whichever happens to 
have the highest cred out there. I hate it when I land on an outdated guide 
version when searching for a specific product feature. But that can be 
mitigated by flashing a warning that a newer version exists, and preferably 
offer a link to corresponding page for that version.

+1 to go ahead with Hoss' plan.

> Once the new Ref Guide is live, we may want to redirect pages from Confluence 
> to the new HTML version. 
> I'm undecided if this is the best idea, I can see pros and cons to it. On the 
> pro side, I think it helps firmly establish the move away from Confluence and 
> helps users adjust to the new location. But I could see the argument that 
> redirecting is overly invasive or unnecessary and we should just add a big 
> warning to the page instead.
> At any rate, if we do decide to do it, I found some Javascript we could tell 
> Confluence to add to the HEAD of each page to auto-redirect. With some 
> probably simple modifications to it, we could get people to the right page in 
> the HTML site:
