I have an upcoming change of default URL of a customer's production environment. When I've tried this in my dev environment I've run into a major problem with the "Following" functionality. There seems to be 2 problems:
- After URL change, all the links on the page "Sites I'm following", under Sites in the suite bar are broken. Or rather, they are not changed from the previous URL, what should be http://newurl is http://oldurl. To Unfollow and the follow again seems to fix it, but I would rather have to not script that
- If I use the MySite news feed and change the target to some site I'm following, then the post does show up in the site feed, but in my own personal feed the link to the site is wrong. Again, unfollowing and following again seems to fix new links, but not old ones in the feed.
Is there some way to fix this without a script to refollow for EVERY user and every site? Some timerjob or something like that?
