/forums -> /community links broken

Postby merias » Sun Jul 16, 2017 2:39 pm

I was doing a search for some posts today and noticed that forum internal links still reference /forums, while these updated boards use /community. So any links on this forum, and any links on the internet that referenced the old forum, are broken. Would it be possible for you to add a rewrite to fix this? It's a fairly common issue with website migrations, a rule such as this will fix it in nginx:

Code: Select all
location /forums { rewrite ^/forums/(.*)$ /community/$1 permanent; }


or apache:

Code: Select all
RewriteRule ^/forums/(.*)$ /community/$1 [NC,L,QSA,R=301]


But your hosting provider can probably do it for you if needed.

Thanks!
