Greetings, all!

Today, just a quick note to the bloggers among us (specifically those who are using Chess.com as a platform) with some news about a change we'll be making very soon.

For various technology reasons, we need to get rid of the subdomain (blog.chess.com) we've been using for this aspect of the site to date.

Here are examples of how blog URLs would look, before and after the change:

"Before" (current)

blog.chess.com/bloggername (the blog page for a specific member)

blog.chess.com/bloggername/blogtitle (a single post)

"After" (soon)

www.chess.com/blog/bloggername

www.chess.com/blog/bloggername/blogtitle

The impact to you and your gentle readers should be minimal, if any! Old-style links will automatically redirect to the relocated content. (However, if you've got any static links to your blog on an off-site Home page, etc., you may want to update them accordingly after the change is in effect!)

That's it! Please let us know if you see anything you think is not working correctly - and happy blogging!
