By default, OpenLabyrinth starts each map at the root node. But sometimes, you want to start from somewhere else in the case or map. For example, in one of our cases, we included a bunch of small sub-cases. In earlier versions of OLab, you could cheat and simply change the URL to point to the new starting node, but some changes in our security model now prevent this.
As a workaround to this, we have added the ability to redirect to a different starting point. The easiest way to see how this works is with the following set of URLs, how they used to be, and how they are now redirected:
