Hello this is a technical heads up regarding the new forum.

The old forum URLs are not properly redirecting to the new URLs, this applies to all old links currently causing old links to erroneously return the “Invalid Page URL” error,. I can give a specific example where the forum administrator needs to use 301 permanent redirects so that the old links properly direct to the new URL, this is 1 example but this is currently widespread.

For example, this old link gives an error:…-new-york.html

It should redirect automatically to this new link, as it is the same post but with a new URL structure:…sland-new-york

Currently none of the old links tested are redirecting to the new links. This is causing all old bookmarks, thread replies, and all inbound searches from Google to not send the user to the proper destination and instead they see an error message.

Google has some information about proper 301 redirects after migrations here:…er/93633?hl=en and this may be useful as well…-301-redirect/ and

Hope this is helpful, pass it along to whoever runs the technical side of the forum.
