how to beat the 'link no work' problem here

Postby Jytte » Sun Sep 13, 2015 8:42 pm

Just in case some other newbie like me are in here searching for information (no, search function does not work either) and is going crazy about all the links to other posts (with the info you're looking for) that just takes you to an empty page:

in the post it might look like this:
Try this link
http://www.tiltedmill.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9076

while clicking that link gets you nowhere, on the page you're at the address up top will read something like this:
tiltedmill.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=17194

simply remove everything after php? and add the page you need (in this case t=9076) ON THE SAME PAGE YOU'RE AT (tried new tab, won't work either), and you get the post you're looking for :D

Hmm. Well that's an interesting error and workaround. I guess you could use that with Google search results to find whatever you wanted:
  • Search Google
  • Get results
  • Copy link shortcut
  • Paste to a text editor
  • Copy out last bits
  • Paste into a link on an existing forum page

Pretty cumbersome but I guess it would work.
