No more SSO landing page? - Paul Battersby - 12-15-2018

Mattias,

Have you shut down the SSO landing page at sso.mattiaswestlund.net? I noticed because it's been the #1 source sending people to virtualplaying.com and the number of daily visitors to my page has just dropped. After all these years it seems Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra still has plenty of active references to it on the internet.

Not intentionally... I did delete the SSO 1.0 archive from my site as I need to conserve bandwidth, but I thought the index page was still there. I might have deleted it accidentally, I'll have a look.


RE: No more SSO landing page? - Mattias Westlund - 12-15-2018

Seems I have somehow deleted the entire folder. Let me see if I have a backup somewhere.


RE: No more SSO landing page? - Paul Battersby - 12-16-2018

I see the folder is back but it's empty. I guess all you need is a single index.html page, and here is a "backup":

Thanks Paul! Everything should be back to normal now.


RE: No more SSO landing page? - Paul Battersby - 12-16-2018

Ooops. That's not quite right. The links point to the wayback machine.

The Virtual Playing Orchestra link needs to point to http://virtualplaying.com

and the VCO2 link needs point to http://vis.versilstudios.net/vsco-community.html

Oh yikes. I just copied the text and links straight from the archived version. One moment.

There, fixed. Thanks for catching that Paul Smile

I thought that would have worked too but I should have realized it couldn't work.

Thanks for maintaining a link to my web site. With years of people sharing links to Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra, so many people find my library by following links to yours, that when that link disappeared, it literally cut my web site traffic in half so I appreciate it and I imagine those that are led to my web site and Sam's web site, by following links to the former Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra web site, are grateful too.

No problem at all, I'm just glad there are more modern alternatives I can point people to. I would honestly not recommend anyone to use vanilla SSO in this day and age, which is also part of why I removed the download from my site.
