Was /users/{username} deprecated?

Hello community!
In my theme I used to redirect to the user’s profile by using the route /users/${username}. But now I notice that it does not work (redirects to 404). Was it changed? if so, Is there a proper place I could track changes like this one to prevent such bugs in the future?
Thank you :slight_smile:

We moved from /users/* to /u/* over 4 years ago:


Both routes were still supported in the server-side and on the client-side router during all this time, but as we are doing heavy work cleaning our client-side code, long deprecated routes are being removed to simplify the code.

Our official commit log is https://github.com/discourse/discourse/commits/master, so if you are creating your own customizations you will want to read the diff between the commit you are running and the new one you plan to update to.

What most people do is using a staging environment with identical configuration, where you can roll updates first and run tests to see if something broke.
