Old links broken?

Recommended Posts

I've hit this a few times.  It seems that links in posts to topics on 43oh that include a reference to a post number, that were posted before the transition (whew...still with me?) are broken.  They will load, show the first post in thread, and then jump to a "page not found" error...which is (I'm assuming) when the software attempts to jump to the topic anchor.

 

Here is an example:

http://www.43oh.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=2529&start=110#p21392

 

I'm using the latest version of Chrome on windows XP, but I see the same behavior on Windows 7 as well

Just tried it. Got http://forum.43oh.com/topic/2009-ethernet-booster-pack/ but no "page not found" error. Safari on OSX. Did you get the same in FF or IE?

 

That link is different from the one I posted.  The one that is broken is : 43oh.com /forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=2529&start=110#p21392  with a space to stop the auto formatting.  Did your browser auto resolve /forum/viewtopic.php?.... to /topic/2009-ethernet-booster-pack?  If so, it sounds like something might be up with the mod_rewrite settings

 

 

edit:  If I stop the page from loading before it errors out, I get this URL:

 

http://forum.43oh.com/topic/2009-ethernet-booster-pack/#p21392

 

Looks like mod_rewrite isn't parsing it correctly and MAC browsers just handle the error differently

Agreed. Speaking of link problems. On the mobile client, if I'm looking at unread posts, and the title of the post has any url related characters, '+' is an example, the mobile client refuses to load it.

Rickta: I'm unable to fix any of this but, for B#'s sake: By "mobile client," do you mean the mobile-themed website, or the Tapatalk application?  I'll tell you ahead of time, B# has no more input on Tapatalk bugs than you or I.

I need an example of this so that I can submit a bug report.

I dunno if this is related, but this post:

 

http://forum.43oh.com/topic/2680-group-buy-10-o-rgb-smd-led-with-built-in-controller/#entry22379

 

Rick's link to the insomnialight.com URL is totally borked, like the forum software took the "..." shorthand in the middle literally and now it links to "http://www.insomnialighting.com/product" with the "..." and "s2811.html" as extraneous text.

Hmm .. i've been complaining about the conversion of stuff for a long time. I didn't paste it that way .. The link used to be valid before the conversion from phpbb... this is just like the way the old code got hosed.
