After Mr Donald Trump became the president at noon today (USA EST), many reported that the whitehouse.gov website removed references to Climate Change and LGBT. That isn’t entirely accurate. The website up to that point has been archived and can be found at https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/.
The LGBT URL was https://www.whitehouse.gov/lgbt but it redirects to this temporary page https://www.whitehouse.gov/transitionsplash/
The page is now at https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/lgbt – why didn’t someone tell the new team how to set up a redirect script so that all old URLs that won’t exist at whitehouse.gov can still be found. Maybe they don’t want them to be found?
The climate change pages are now at https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-record/climate
As best as I can tell, if you have an old URL, just replace whitehouse.gov/ with obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/ and add the rest of the URL to it. For example, to get to whitehouse.gov/vp (to reach Joe Biden’s page), just go to obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/vp and so on. Looks like it’s all there at the archives.gov location, but some links will have broken.
