  • User Error or Major Problem?

    When I try to use a link to an older post inside a post and that link points to a url using the "old" syntax like:
    https://www.rotaryforum.com/forum/ar...p/t-33810.html
    I get an error message like the one below. Am I making some sort of mistake or is the archive indeed currently not available?
    If the latter is the case, will access to the archive be restored? If not that would be a terrible blow, since I get the same error
    message when I search the rotaryforum via google.

        The one I refer to in my post #1
        https://www.rotaryforum.com/forum/ar...p/t-33810.html

        it had been created before the update. It seems currently that you can not access any of the old threads anymore.

          Hope that this problem is corrected soon, together with others... The 'new' forum isn't working OK... It's to be feared that what began as a minor 'virus infiltration' may be the end of the RWF.

            It's good to know, Javier, that I am not the only one who considers this a major issue. I wonder when we will be informed about how and when the forum admins intend to tackle the problem. Having worked in IT for quite some time I would have expected that the question of data migration is solved before you buy any update from a software provider.

              The problem described in post #1 does not seem to be solved. I still consider this the most serious issue after the update and would like to know what priority it has on the admin's to do list.... or whether it actually *is* on the list, or isn't it????
              Cheers,

                When I try to open the database 'Technical papers, books and publications' I get the following message:

                ​​​​​​Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message.

                Any help, or any comments, at least...?

                  Please try the link below, Javier, it worked for me.
                  https://www.rotaryforum.com/forum/ro...-publications/


                  Unfortunately all the links inside the different entries are still not working, like the one inside Chuck's fine article:
                  https://www.rotaryforum.com/forum/ro...rotor-airfoils

                  These URLs currently don't work. A data migration should be possible. Wonder when it will be done!

                      The current .htaccess rules produce errors when using /forum/ as a rewrite base, however if you use http://www.rotaryforum.com/showthread.php?t=45756 it will work correctly.

                        Hi cshier, that does the trick, thank you for the hint!! It should be two lines, or so, of code to check all incoming requests via e.g. a regular expression and then change the URL to the correct form automatically. Until that day we have to relay on manual labour... ;-)


                        So the sequence is: you search something eg. via Google and get a URL like this:

                        https://www.rotaryforum.com/forum/ar...hp/t-9419.html

                        which gives the error in post #1. Next by deleting "/forum" (sans double quotes) you change it to

                        https://www.rotaryforum.com/archive/...hp/t-9419.html

                        mark it and select "Open Link in New Tab" (or you simply change it in the URL line of your browser) and it works!


                        Thanks again, I feel very, very relieved that there is a workaround!


                        PS: I still have trouble with my signature line, which appears or disappears magically. Do you have a solution regarding adding or omitting the signature line reliably as well?

                          That of deleting '/forum' is a valuable discovery...
                          Little by little, and thanks to your help, I'm slowly finding my way here...
                          Many thanks to all helpers around...!
