Please Report Broken Links

We recently underwent an update around here to make the forum more secure, in the process links that were posted after the year 2013 are probably broken. These seem to be only links within the ETUM Forum, ones to outer sources are, for the most part, ok.

If you find a thread that has broken links please report them,
(You will know it's broken when you get to this page, leaves-and-roots-t25680.html#p186697)
You can report them by clicking the exclamation mark within the window of the offending post. It will open a window with a drop down menu, scroll to the bottom, choose last option "reported message does not fit into any other category, please use the further information field"
Then fill in the text box saying it is a broken link and we will try to fix it asap.

We're trying to fix them when we run into them but cannot possibly find them all.
Thanks for your help!!! :fairy:

Will do. How do you want the topic to be identified? Or does it happen automatically?

I removed this thread from Global Announcements, but it still applies to anyone who is around a lot and wants to help out. But my guess is, we probably aren't getting many broken link reports, so I can't see bothering everyone with it.
