Appreciate Nice Feature -- unpublished "Favorite" stays in place! Answered

Yesterday I flagged a fellow member's unpublished I'ble as a "Favorite" (so I could give some feedback and copyediting). It was published today, and I thought I'd have to go and reflag the published version since the URL would be different. Not at all! It was still right there in my Favorites list, and the URL had automatically updated itself to the published version (the title with underscores) instead of the internal hash ID.

. IIRC, you can still access the iBle by its hash. . I'm guessing that the titled-based URL is for us humans and just points/redirects to the hash URL.

I'm sure you're right. What I noticed, however, was that the actual URL used for the hyperlink in my Favorites display (i.e., the Web page generated by I'bles back end) changed from the hashed version to the published human-readable version. If it had just stuck as the hash, that would have been "okay", although successive published versions must, I think, get unique hashes (to allow for reversion). Besides, I've posted a sufficient number of bug reports and complaints, it seemed only fair to speak up publicly about something nice :-)
