How-to Automatically Redirect Medium Articles

If you don't want to manually change the URL every time, you can use an extension to do it for you. This extension works well across most browsers.

Once installed download a configuration file by clicking here.

Install it by opening the extension preferences, editing redirects, clicking Import and selecting the downloaded file. This will add a new redirection and not overwrite any existing ones. Now visiting any medium.com site (including user.medium.com subdomains) should redirect to Scribe instead!

What about Medium articles on custom domains?

Scribe can read these also. The URL just needs to end with the characters at the end of the URL called the Post ID. Here's an example:

example.com/my-post-09a6af907a2 can be converted to
scribe.rip/my-post-09a6af907a2
