...instead of here, the point being that that's far more updated version(yesterday). And so the site should probably update.

we have known this forever, as it's the same permission problem that's causing other issues on g3.

awesome, so it's also possible to drop in a .htaccess file to properly redirect old-style links?

Possibly? I seem to recall messing around with it before and running into some problem, but I can give it another try.

I don't know what the base is (RewriteBase), but something like this should do:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^forums.gibberlings3.net
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://gibberlings3.net/forums/$1 [R=301,L]

test case:

This was attempted as soon as we got our FTP access restored, as was an IESDP redirect. htaccess files are disallowed at our directory level, and our account doesn't go above the web root for the site.

that's odd, this should work on the web root level.

 

Anyway, at least IESDP can be fixed via html. Replace its index.htm with this one:

<html>
  <head>
    <title></title>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=https://gibberlings3.github.io/iesdp/" />
    <style></style>
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

Strangely enough, I do also know HTML. And while that will fix the index, it won't fix redirects for the 817 other pages.

 

Don't worry, this is on the to-do list. Main nav has been fixed, the rest will keep for now.

iesdp.gibberlings3.net and gibberlings3.net/iesdp are baked in many places, so it would still be helpful. But now that you have access to ftp, you could also just delete the old iesdp and add a custom 404 page with another redirect (if supported). Or if there's cron, even better ...

Right, so let me just designate a custom 404 page in my htaccess... :)

 

We have the technical knowledge. We lack the time. It's on the list.

My job is so much easier when you're around.
