Fixing broken forum links
« on: June 03, 2014, 09:06:13 »

Some may have noticed that since our forum moved to a new host, any link starting with http://80.95.161.114/shipsim/forum/... no longer functions. Unfortunately since the forum no longer uses this address, it is not possible to auto-redirect to a http://forum.shipsim.com/ link.

If you find yourself a broken link such as:
http://80.95.161.114/shipsim/forum/index.php/topic,26.0.html

You can easily fix this by copying the bit of index.php and everything behind it after http://forum.shipsim.com/. So the link would look like this:
http://forum.shipsim.com/index.php/topic,26.0.html

It's a little extra work, but it's the best fix we could find.
Luckily this issue won't happen to any new links posted. Only links posted prior to the forum's host switch are affected.
