Broken Links
« on: 12 July 2023, 21:52:54 »
This morning, the links in my index thread worked.  After I got home tonight, they no longer do.  Was some change made to the forum software?  It seems to have happened at the same time as the strange emoji change mentioned in the other thread down here.

A while back, thread URLs changed from this format

https://bg.battletech.com/forums/non-canon-units/baronies-of-foxhaven/

To this format

https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?action=post;topic=81939.0;last_msg=1947273

Either links with the first format have been dead for a while or support for them broke / was removed. I remember having to fix some links with this problem before

We're working on fixing the problem. Stay tuned.

Look, dude, when you are a real mechwarrior you don't need to get all dressed up in cooling suits and cool helmets to work on your mech. You just strip down to your 1980s panties and crop top vest and start wrenchin' it.

Not working yet for me, but that could be my problem... will check again in the morning, and THANK YOU for looking at the problem, sir! (I'd use a thumbsup emoji if there was one right now...)

Haha...just kidding. I had to revert, so links will remain wonky for a bit. Stay tuned.

It's on the list, but there are other items ahead of it at the moment.

It's going to be a right pain to fix all the links in my Mechs of the Kickstarter Directory thread. And links are a thing for signed-in people only now?

I'd noticed that the link formatting had changed, but both the new style and old style worked at the same time when I last updated it. 

Thanks for your efforts Soundwave.
