Title: broken redirect
Post by: StarCrash on September 05, 2016, 01:08:31 PM
Rik, old friend:
(Registered PowerStrip user here.)
I know the forums are [mostly] closed. (Thankfully still present because of ongoing usefulness.)
I reconnected today to update my profile, see old posts, and look around.

I noticed some URL difficulty today.
No need to reply. If you fix it, you can just delete this message.

http://www.entechtaiwan.com/*  works.
http://www.entechtaiwan.net/*  redirects to above.

http://forums.entechtaiwan.com/*  works.
http://forums.entechtaiwan.net/*  jams and eventually displays a mysql error  (my old Internet shortcuts here.  also I THINK the link from change-your e-mail address sent me there.)

To fix something best, fix it twice:
(1) fix the link to NOT send people to forums.entechtaiwan.net
(2) fix the forums.entechtaiwan.net server to redirect to forums.entechtaiwan.com/*

Some old links I had went to http://www.entechtaiwan.com/forums/*
This appears to be a synonym for http://forums.entechtaiwan.com/*
The bad link might have sent me to http://www.entechtaiwan.NET/forums/ (sorry i did not notice.)
