Language Software Development and Dictionary & Lexicography Services have teamed up to upgrade Webonary.org. This upgrade will happen in several stages.
February 17/2020 - The first stage is to change the URL structure from using subdomains of Webonary.org to using a directory structure. This means that if the URL for the dictionary you are working on is https://phuien.webonary.org/, it will be https://webonary.org/phuien/ after this change.
There are several advantages to making this change.
- The site will be more secure as it will be behind a firewall.
- It will be faster to access.
- It will help each of the dictionaries to be more search-friendly and have a higher search ranking as all the traffic to each of the dictionaries will be combined under a single domain.
This process will take around 1.5 hours and should be completed by 9:30 CST on Monday. During the process, you will see a message on Webonary, saying that the site is down for maintenance. Please check back later.
When the URLs have been successfully transitioned, please inform all the people who regularly access the dictionary site you are working on. For a period of time, using the old URL will result in you being redirected to the new site.
I will provide information regularly as we transition through the stages. We will try to keep any inconvenience to you to a minimum. Please sign up for the DLS newsletter in order to receive future notifications, here: https://www.webonary.org/join-the-dictionary-lexicography-services-mailing-list/.
