    Just a quick note to advise that some server changes have been made that force https (as opposed to http). With folders moved and modified to suit this change some old links will not work. To get to the correct forum location please use: https://www.odsc.on.ca/index.php
    Change your bookmarks to match the new location.

    Note that there may be some weirdness with old links existing in the forum software. PM me with anything you notice and I'll clean things up. I'm insanely busy right now so it may take a while.

    I'm behind on approving registrations. If I can't reach Limited Users by phone, your registration does not get approved. Those who have joined via the OFTR always get priority, but note that I don't have everyone's username, so it can take time to figure out who you are.

    I am sure that website admin is a generally thankless job, so will start by thanking you (and anyone else involved) for maintaining it. These days, I pretty well add ODSC to my OFTR renewal just to support this site.

    I updated my bookmarks per suggestion, but the link in email notification for followed thread takes me to an old link. Like this example from today:

    http://www.odsc.on.ca/.xenforo/inde...-green-plate-blue-plate-question.23828/unread

    which results in:

    Route .xenforo/index.php could not be found.

    Our host requested that our file location be modified when we transitioned to https. So the correct path now is without the ".xenforo"

    http://www.odsc.on.ca/inde...-green-plate-blue-plate-question.23828/unread

    So you can modify the path if you get an error message or do a search for the topic. Search for "green plate blue plate".
    The first result is this current post asking about the green plate blue plate topic.
    The second result is the topic you are looking for.
    You can verify this by looking at the number at the end of the link (23828)
    When you go to a post in the search results that number will be in the browser address bar.

    Yes, there are various work-arounds to dealing with the broken link in notification email. I would have thought forum software would have templates for email notification, or some other way to embed a working link in the notification email. If not, just a minor nuisance.
