Is the IRC channel still open? I haven't been able to connect to dragonfire since the move.

If you use as your server is should work, as well as any of the other Dragonfire servers.

EDIT: It seems itself is down, someone would have to get into contact with one of the Dragonfire network admins to get it working, for the time being works as it points directly to the the server rather than one of the * servers that redirect through

Could be possible to run/add a script that corrects the old links?

Happy Thanksgiving.

I too thought this was an obvious move, but I don't think anyone understood what you were saying. Admins, if you change the to be an index.php file, you can replace the code inside it with the below code, and most (probably all) old links will work fine (removing the need for editing bookmarks, signatures, etc.).


$urlstring = "showtopic=".$_GET['showtopic']."&st=".$_GET['st']."&showforum=".$_GET['showforum']."&showuser=".$_GET['showuser']."&act=".$_GET['act']."&CODE=".$_GET['code']."&VID=".$_GET['VID']."&f=".$_GET['f']."&t=".$_GET['t']."&qpid=".$_GET['qpid']."&view=".$_GET['view']."&p=".$_GET['p']."&do=".$_GET['do']."&auth_key=".$_GET['auth_key'];

<title>United TI Forum Redirect</title>
<META http-equiv="refresh" content="5;URL=<?php echo $urlstring ?>">

<body bgcolor="#ffffff">
<center>The contents you are looking for have moved. You will be redirected to the new location automatically in 5 seconds, or <a href="<?php echo $urlstring ?>">click here</a> if you prefer not to wait.


I simply copied your code and added in a simple PHP script that will get all variables from a URL, and send them to the new URL along with the variable.

For example, the script would take a URL such as
and send the user to

For noobs, code such as

is just creating a string by adding 'showtopic=' to the value of the 'showtopic' variable stored in the URL, so the code is pretty self explanatory. It is a bit messy, but that's because I don't think there's a way to get all the variables from the URL with one command, so I have to check for each one individually.

Hopefully you guys are able to implement it - this functionality is so obvious, I fear that if someone skilled enough to get a forum running hasn't gotten this running, it's probably not possible (perhaps you guys aren't able to edit index.html?).

Anyway, Merry Christmas lads!

Dwedit raises the following issue:
UnitedTI's board appears to be screwed up and is unable to send validation emails, so my account there is temporarily locked. Would someone please kindly bug an adminstrator there about the issue?
