Update - Track & Profile Page URLs

Hey,

You might have noticed that the track page and user profile page URLs have changed a bit recently. This was done to improve SEO and make development easier.

Here's a couple of examples:

  • /user/GWGMg has become /users/1/brad
  • /t/my-new-track has become /tracks/12345/my-new-track

The old URLs will continue to work but if you get the chance, I do recommend updating any long-standing links you have to tracks or profiles across the web.

As part of this change, I have also added tokens to the URLs of private tracks. The reason for these tokens is that the URL now contains a guessable ID. Attempting to access a private track without the correct token in the URL will result in a 404 😊
