I’ve noticed that many links in the forums linking to posts on BPL are broken due to a change in the website layout. I don’t know when this occurred because I’m new here. As an example, see Conner D’s post here: https://backpackinglight.com/forums/topic/57308/. It’s very easy to get to the desired page by replacing the url “http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/forums/thread_display.html?forum_thread_id=21902“ with https://backpackinglight.com/forums/topic/21902/. Is there any plan to fix this issue on a mass scale? I see two easy fixes: (1) crawl the forum posts and replace links with the above format with the new correct format, or (2) redirect links of the old format to the new format. If this has already been noticed and it’s just a time thing, I can provide support.
