If anything doesn't show what you're expecting, please cut'n'paste the URL for me.

I'm hoping we will convert over everything I can convert by 11/1.

Got one boss.

The "What 'custom' orders do you make at Fast Food places?" URL from the One Question forum topic list (http://the-w.com/​​f/​​25) is linking back to the main page rather than the topic. (http://the-w.com/)

Going to the topic via the unread arrow thingy works correctly tho'. (http://the-w.com/​thread.php/​id=44530)

Cheers

The apostrophes in the thread title upsetting your new URL maker?

Thanks - looks like I converted every existing thread on the board at the time except the most recent one, which was that one. It should be OK now.

These two threads do not link properly to their icons in The 7 row on the front page:

http://the-w.com/someone-shoot-john-madden-and-maybe-wound-al-too

http://the-w.com/daschle-is-so-desperate-sued-thune-last-night

Clicking takes you to The 7 front page.

Ah, they didn't tweet right either. I think I figured out why and fixed them.

I don't know if this is related, but something is wrong with a thread in Music, specifically the "Amazon.com MP3 Download Top 100 Bestsellers -- November 06, 2011". If you try to click it, it goes directly to the-w.com.

Yup - script typo should be fixed. (We'll find out next week!)

So, um, when one clicked on the "x new" link in the "Threads" column, it used to bring up only the threads with new posts. Now it brings up all of the threads - new and old. Is there any way to go back to the previous way, because I keep clicking on the stickied threads and confusing myself... :)

Yes! I broke that fixing something else. Hopefully that's ALSO fixed now. (Let me know if it isn't)

I just noticed going to the Internet and random forums new was reported,(on the main page) but when I got in there, no new link on any threads. There were new and new thread activity on other pages (wrestling, TV, Basketball)



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

We are still restoring from a backup - I'd let things just go for about an hour :)

Ah... when I close a thread, I also accidentally blow away its URL. That's fixed. Thanks!

When you view threads started by a specific user (via their profile), they link to the old URLs.

And then if you view posts by a user the same way, the URL contains the old thread number.

Periods creates some (minor) cosmetic issues:

-when used in an ellipsis (and not all ellipses have three periods)
Mick Foley leaves TNA...for reals, this time
http://the-w.com/mick-foley-leaves-tnafor-reals-this-time

-when used in a date
TNA Impact 7.14.2011 - "Midsummer Nightmare"
http://the-w.com/tna-impact-7142011-midsummer-nightmare

-when used in the name of a website
the-w.com topics of interest: August 2011
http://the-w.com/the-wcom-topics-of-interest-august-2011

I couldn't find an example of a period being used as an actual period.

I changed the icon on the new Arrested Development thread to the AD logo, but if you click the image on the main page, it just takes you to the main page (which you are already on - it's like a mind puzzle, an awesome mind puzzle)

Yeah, we'll have to chalk that up as an editorial decision.

Hmmm....I thought I fixed that problem. I'll have to see if I can go back and see how you did it.

EDIT: Must be a moderator problem (vs. an admin problem, which it wasn't). I THINK I've fixed it.

The link to Verlander wins the MVP isn't working for me. I click the Tiger's logo or when I'm in in the baseball section it goes to the main page.

I gotta stop the moderators from editing threads or something.

EDIT: I think I've really got it to stop zapping the short URLs whenever they get edited this time. I think.
