We’re planning to move the files that are used by published projects to a different domain. This is a technical change that will not affect most Flourish users. We’re announcing it here so you can check whether it will affect you.
The domain name
flo.uri.sh has been used to host newly published projects for a few weeks now. We intend to migrate all projects to this new domain during the week commencing 20th July 2020. This will not affect the URLs you see in your browser’s address bar or share with people. It will only affect you if:
- You have to explicitly whitelist Flourish domain names at your company firewall; or
- You are using custom code to embed Flourish projects, as opposed to using standard embed codes.
You may notice some changes to the embed codes generated by the app over the next few weeks. At the moment the generated embed codes contain a
data-url parameter, which is needed because older projects are hosted on
public.flourish.studio, and newer projects are hosted on
flo.uri.sh. Once all projects have been migrated to the new domain, we will remove this parameter.
We will issue 301 redirect responses from the old-style URLs, so that old iframe embeds continue to work.
If you are using a custom scrollytelling implementation, as opposed to our scrollytelling library, then you should change the domain name your implementation is using. We plan to use a service worker to allow existing implementations, using the old domain name, to function correctly in most browsers.
