Missing / Changed / URLs / Links


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys - I've received a number of emails from people asking if certain forums, threads, or articles have been removed. The new site  just shows an error message when they click on a bookmark or link to CA on another site.

If you run into this issue, please post the link in this thread and I will fix it so the old link redirects appropriately to the new address.

 

 

P.S. Yes, I know the "best" way to do this is to redirect all URLs, but I can't find anyone with the skills and time to create the rules, given how the URLs were formatted on the old site etc...

Chris, there are thousands of links so I am not sure how you will do them all individually. There are six or seven others threads that came up on Google that I tried to link to yesterday. 

Roon software, Lenovo TS 440 server, IPad Air 2 for remote control and Dell 2340T display, Dell Latitude 7140 tablet (Windows 8.1, 256 SSD and 8 GB RAM) with Dell docking station, Aqua Hifi LaScala mk ii DAC, Allnic L 5000 DHT preamp, Shaker Logic Attune with two outputs for the amplifiers, Vitus SS-101 mk ii amp, Bosendorfer VC-7 speakers and Focal Sub Utopia Be subwoofer.

Yes, there are about 90,000 important links. I'm taking on the most accessed and linked-to pages / threads. Unfortunately the one you provided above has an issue that isn't allowing me to redirect it automatically. 

 

Here's a link to get you to that page -

@The Computer AudiophileI was going to sweep this under the rug when I found one last night, but I do think that this thread holds a lot of value and is worth saving:

New posts!  Old link: https://www.computeraudiophile.com/search.php?do=getnew&contenttype=vBForum_Post

 

This is how I digest my forums.  Please tell me this feature is not gone.

 

This thread is design for people looking for these views that appear to be gone but they really aren't. They are called Activity Streams now and can be created custom for each user and can be set as default when clicking Activity up top etc...

Also, I believe this is the view you want - https://www.computeraudiophile.com/discover/unread/?&

I'm just waiting patiently for google to get it's search result links straightened out. 

 

You and me both. I spent the night manually creating redirect links for about 500 of the most linked-to pages. one would think Google could just reindex the site and call it good, but it doesn't work this way. Search rankings involve so much more than just content. Google considers how many other sites link to one's site and if those links still work etc... It's a huge can of worms.

 

I remember after the last site software change when all the links also changed. I said I'd never to it again. Never say never :~(

 

Anyway, the work continues with Google's tools to get all the search results and links back to normal.

Yeah this is a very big issue because the site will drop in google rankings when the indexed links are broken. What I would do is write a bit of code to hook into 404 errors and look up and redirect the old to the new URI. my 2p..

I'd love to pay someone to do this, but can find nobody capable.

It would all depend on what backend you are using but generally I'd hook the 404 exception and then pass the URI into a 1:1 database that you populate with old:new URIs. If found, do a redirect to new URI, if not then return the 404.

The problem is mapping the old to the new URI. 

 

Right now I have to manually create 301 redirects by finding the old URI, searching for the content on the new site to find the new URI, then enter it into the db. Impossible with 90,000 URIs. 

 

 

Here's an example:

 

Old URI - http://www.computeraudiophile.com/f8-general-forum/computer-audiophile-site-upgrade-coming-march-18-2017-a-31798/

New URI - https://www.computeraudiophile.com/forums/topic/31040-ca-site-upgrade-coming-march-18-2017/

You could modify the software that you used to re-create the site to, instead of re-creating  a page, instead save the URI into the db... it depends on how you recreated the site, but the logic used to recreate the site is the logic that "knows" what the old to new URI mapping is.

Don’t know if anyone posted this elsewhere already, but if one is really desperate to find a particular link before Chris fixes it, google the relevant part of URL from your dead link like so:

1. Dead one:
https://www.computeraudiophile.com/f8-general-forum/locked-gain-pc-or-gain-info-metadata-29306/


2. The following Google query will give you the old and the new links at the top of the search results:
locked-gain-pc-or-gain-info-metadata site:www.computeraudiophile.com

Thank you Serge!  That will help me fix a pile of links on our web site that refer to threads or posts here at CA.

Hi Chris,

 

Some information of Miska's blog is very useful with pictures attached. However, after the new CA, it only shows messy code instead of pictures. Can you please fix these? Thanks in advance.
