Automatic package links are broken

The links introduced here Automatic package links - #4 by mbauman such as DifferentialEquations are currently being redirected to JuliaHub which is a 404 landing page.


Thanks for flagging this! JuliaHub added the registry name to the URLs here, so I need to fixup the links.

It should work again with a hard-reload of your browser: test with this DifferentialEquations.jl.

This seems to be a thing across the ecosystem - is a redirect for the old links an option, so that people with existing documentation don’t all have to be aware of this?

EDIT: To clarify; this is something JuliaHub would have to install on their end, not package developers in their docs.


Quick update: While it seems that there is a redirect now, I’m not sure it’s working correctly. When I navigate to, I get redirected to a page that looks like the package page for DifferentialEquations.jl, but the URL in my address bar reads I suspect you have some off-by-one in your proxy configuration, inserting the wrong URL segment as the package name (my guess is you’re doing some last-like operation, but on the new URL that’s only been partially constructed and not the old URL).

Just checking in here, the redirect still seems to end up at the double General in the address bar, both on Firefox as well as Chromium.
