Original Blog URL looks strange on the URL Mapping (for 301 redirects) page

Follow

Issue

When migrating a blog to Uberflip, the URL Mapping (for 301 redirects) does not show the original blog URL.

  • Where the original URL should appear, the page displays letters with dashes inside curly brackets, e.g. {36A82D82-3E3B-40B1-B00E-2839BF17I87E}

Conditions

  • Where: Migrate Your Old Blog To Your Hub page (Hubs > Content > click on a Blog Stream > Hamburger Menu > URL Mapping (for 301 redirects))
  • Any browser
  • Any operating system

 

Cause

The "code" shown under the Original URL column is a GUID, or Globally Unique Identifier. GUIDs are used to uniquely identify various things, including blog posts in an RSS feed. However, there should also be a traditional URL available.

 

Steps to Fix

You can fix the problem by switching the URLs displayed in Uberflip to the permalink:

  1. Go to the Migrate Your Old Blog to Your Hub page: Hubs > Content > Blog Stream > Hamburger Menu > URL Mapping (for 301 redirects).
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and look for Originals URLs not displaying correctly? Try using the "permalink" value.
  3. Click on the link for Try using the "permalink" value.
  4. The page will refresh, and should now display usable URLs under the Original URL column.
