Previously platform URLs ended in /a. For example if you linked demo.secure-platform.com, it would redirect to demo.secure-platform.com/a.
This path (/a) can now be overwritten and new paths can be created. We this update we now have support for:
Renaming the default path from /a to anything else.
Adding additional websites to your existing subdomain. For example demo.secure-platform.com can redirect to your current website/program and you can add paths to additional sites like demo.secure-platform.com/2022-abstracts and demo.secure-platform.com/2022-awards.
All existing /a links will stay the same and if you do rename there are redirects and failsafes to ensure those links keep working.
Similarly /a/admin is now /admin; but we put in redirects to ensure any bookmarks that are out there will continue to operate
