Re: New Forum! - work around for searches

For the duration of the MachSupport forums being located at:

  forum.machsupport.com/forum

instead of:

  www.machsupport.com/forum

You will find that links from Google or other messages in
the forum itself may point to the place where the forum
used to be. For example:

www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=27571.0

Such links will result in being redirected to the home page
of the forum.

The link can be hand edited to replace the "www" with "forum"
and the edited link will go to the correct location.

forum.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=27571.0

If the link seems to have a ; followed by other characters
at the end of the link, strip off the ; and everything
behind it.

I do not know of any work around for the forum itself not
being able to search, so for now you will be forced to use
Google to search. Including the keywords "Machsupport" and
"forum" may help narrow down the returned hits from Google.

Hey all,

I have zero access to the forum from the office. I agree that it isn't ideal in its current state, but it would take two of our developers a full day to get the forum updated and fully functional. It's on the agenda, though current projects must be completed before that can happen. We're definitely not going out of business any time soon, rest assured. I appreciate everyone who has been on here offering help and I am grateful for your patience and understanding. As always, our support team can be contacted directly at support.machsupport.com.

Thank you,
Bryanna

I guess that fixing the links in the forum would be an easy task for only one developper.

* Disable forum temporarelly
* run a simple "script" that will go through entire forum's database and change "www.machsupport.com/forum" with "forum.machsupport.com/forum"
* Enable forum again.

Steve, you have a typo: forums.machsupport.com/forum
Extra letter

Error corrected for the benefit of those that follow.

(Just a note; the forum has now been updated and changing 'forum/www' is no longer necessary).

As I suggested :) Take forum down, ..., take it up

OK, I think i am in the right place now???
If this is true, all that had to be said was NFS is not supported by Google so log in through another server.

So simple and no one could explain that to me after all this time and dancing around hmmm!!!

I think people forget that we are not all at the same level and newbies can easily feel intimidated.

We want new people to join our forum and feel confident with the support and not frustrated, we are not all at the same level!!

Thanks for listening to what i had to say!
I Hope this is the new forum.
