Description

While reading Kake's perl.com OpenGuides article, I tried clicking the link for "find me everything within half a kilometre of Piccadilly Circus Tube station". At the time of creating this ticket, it doesn't work, presumably because the names of the CGI parameters have changed. This is mildly embarrasing.

Interesting... If I visit OGL, go to Piccadilly Circus Station by whatever means, and use the "find me everything within 500 metres" option, I get a different link:

http://london.openguides.org/supersearch.cgi?latlong_dist=500&latitude=51.509186&longitude=-0.132106&Go=Go

We don't need the parameter Go=Go, as this is merely the name of the submit button, but the rest of the parameters have all metamorphosised:

lat => latitude long => longitude distance_in_metres => latlong_dist

The question is, can kake update the original feature on perl.dom or do we need to change OpenGuides to maintain backward compatibility?

Surely a simple redirect would work here?
