A new configuration option, allows you to specify whether you want Publisher to redirect to content stored on S3 (the default, and current behavior) or serve it directly.

To set the option on a "normal" Unix server:

export fpRedirect=false

To set the option for a Heroku app:

heroku config:set fpRedirect=false --app your-app-name

I've set the fpRedirect option false on smallpict.com, possibly as an experiment. However I'm pretty sure the server will be able to handle the extra work of serving the content instead of redirecting, and it makes things simpler all-around, which of course is a good thing.

What does this mean in practical terms? Here's a post on my test site, the one I used to develop the CMS. Because the redirect feature is off, the URL doesn't change after you click the link.
