old non-working forum links

Post by dlb » Fri Nov 15, 2013 12:54 pm

there are some old links on the forum that will not work due to a server change that occurred a few years ago. if anyone comes across a link on the forum like this:

http://www.tercel4wd.com/forums/viewtop ... 16&p=28985

all they need to do is click that old, non-working link to open it in a new window. it should bring up an 'error 404' screen or something like that. then you can just remove 'forums/' from the URL of that non-working window so it looks like this (minus the spaces—i had to add them so the full URL would show up here):

http:// www. tercel4wd.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3916&p=28985

hit enter, and the link should then work.

Report the post as well. We can manually edit it.

We can now unstick this topic. All old forum links will work now that we're back in /forums/

All "new" forum links will work too, thanks to redirection. For example,

http://www.tercel4wd.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8103 which is posted in the FAQ, will seamlessly redirect to viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8103

Once we do a forum upgrade I'll go through and fix every link, but this will do for now.

Not much we can do about that! That is why whenever I post a CL ad here I try and copy over the text and some of the pictures.

if a car sells, the seller probably takes down the ad. people are just linking to the ads here so they are naturally a time-sensitive thing. if you're looking for another t4, you have to keep checking regularly.
