  • s2forum.com - Dead links

    Hi

    It has been mentioned before and I guess there is some post already.

    Just wondered if anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this? If it's possible.
    I've been looking myself to try find a solution but I'm not that experienced with programming and vBulletin.

    There's so many how to / articles and posts with a lot of good content that is difficult to find.
    Usually there is "take a look here how I did it" and it's linked to the wrong post or it's dead.

    Would be good if there is a solution to figure this out

    And thanks for a great forum btw

    Lars,

    I did manage to fix quite a few of these previously but struggled with some of them that linked to specific posts. Where they link to a thread these are fixed, I've just had a lot on with life so haven't had a chance to get back to it yet.

        Yeah I had a look through at what would be needed, but didn't manage to identify the correct function to use in the new VB version. I've got quite a bit on at work atm, but will try to get back to it as I know its frustrating for members.

          Hi Greg. We all appreciate what you do for us. While you are busy, I found a work around which normally finds the right page. Use a google search using "S2 forum + title of link". Normally gets you there

            Nice google dork. If you have a few examples you can share that would help me identify what needs changing

                Specify it with:
                site:s2forum.com The Topic You Are Looking For

                This specify Google to only search s2forum.com , no other domains at all. If that is the choice someone wants to do.

                Would love to get the links working again, I'll try some searching when I have time later on..

                  Hi Greg
                  I found one here. Post 4, the link takes you to the wrong thread. Just an example.

                    Think it would work with some. Htaccess editing etc

                      Yeah I spent a bit of time before tweaking the htaccess files. I expect there is an endpoint in VB that references back and provides the current link. This was the case for the old threads
