surplusrifleforum.com now surplusrifleforum.org

Post by 72 usmc »

:idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: NOTICE surplusrifleforum.com has updated to surplusrifleforum.org. A subtle change I failed to notice.
To access one must use surplusrifleforum.org.

All posts and photos remain intact. However, any referenced link placed on/into another forum as .com no longer functions. You must up date the reference link to the .org. address link. Now any pre 16 Nov 2020 link back into this forum indicated by " viewtoppic php?..... no longer functions because it is a .com link. The author will have to update the link to a .org address or as a reader you will have to search out the reference in the former old posts.

I never noticed this change and as a result could not get back onto the forum because my bookmark was a surplusrifleforum.com. You must update the bookmark to surplusrifleforum.org

Please on important posts you wrote, if you have time, please update the internal SRF reference links you may have used in your post so readers can refer back to the older SRF post you have used as a key reference.

To do this change is easy if you are the author. For example
In this post I want to change the red "viewtopicphp... " that is a .com to a .org
On 27 May 2020, I have added a Russian Capture that is very different and unique. It has a restamped serial number on the top of the receiver. see page 12, Shanne B 's RC original link: viewtopic.php?f=13&p=27335#p27335
I go to the post and hit the edit button, and the section shows the entire address like shown below:

All I have to do is change the .com to .org and the link will function and go back and show the referenced former post in SRF.

This is it. I am done. The new info will appear like this as shown below when corrected and resubmitted as an edit.

note it does not work above because it is an example with color additions. But in the actual forum it will work as indicated.
GO here on page1. http://www.surplusrifleforum.org/viewto ... =13&t=1911 And you can see the actual correction and it functions as it should. The correction and Quote is in the bottom of the second post on page 1.

Our daily visitor count is still rather low since most do not know about the change from .com to .org.
:idea: :idea: Might I suggest if you are a member of other forums to please post an information message on that forum that surplusrifleforum.com is now surplusrifleforum.org. If anyone uses the .com link they get a domain for sale page and may think SRF is off line. Thanks
