How to access the old 404 links

Postby Zeturi » Wed Nov 25, 2009 4:58 pm

It sucks being a noob and not being able to use the stickies. A bunch of links from about 3-4 years ago don't work, and only lead to a 404 error. Since we all know how much time it would take to fix all the existing links, I'll show you how to get to those 404'd threads. Here is 404'd thread:

http://benheck.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=53940#53940

Copy/paste the link in the address bar. Then, edit it to say this:

http://forums.benheck.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=53940#53940

add in forums. (not actually bolded) just before the rest of the link. Then delete the phpBB/ section. Hit enter or go, and presto! No more 404! Check this link to be sure, it was from four years ago. Both links lead to the same thread, but the one below is the edited version.

viewtopic.php?p=53940#53940

Mods/Admins: If this is not in the right section, please let me know and I'll change it right away!
If you're getting 404'd when trying to use the links in stickies, try this tutorial to find that juicy info.

I forgot about this! I'm glad someone remembered to post it.
