Since we have gone to a new server, links to the old messageboard on the old server no longer work. Example:

http://www.boss302.com/board/viewthread.php3?FID=2&TID=11946

will get you a 404 error.

All of those "old" messages are here on the new messageboard. You just have to make a manual adjustment.

Notice the number at the end, 11946? That is the topic ID number.

Clicking on the following link will open a new browser window.

http://www.boss302.com/smf/index.php?topic=

Then, in your browser address line, manually put that ID number at the end of the URL address after the 'topic=' and add a '.0' (11946.0) then hit your 'Enter' key.
