Since the URLs changed with the switch to IPB, the links to forum threads that are automatically generated by the pack and mod forms no longer work.

It would appear most links on the wiki that lead to the forum on broken. Including those on the mod pages.

 

If there is no automatic way of fixing this I can get a start on fixing the mod pages at least.

I think the main wiki page also has a broken link. It doesn't say 2.2.8.

Link to this page? It's on the main page for me: https://wiki.step-pr...t.com/Main_Page

We can't fix this until someone fixes the Mod template.
<span style="float: left;"> {{#if: {{{forumtid|}}} | [http://forum.step-project.com/showthread.php?tid=[[ForumTID::{{{forumtid}}}]] Forum]}}
needs to become something like this...
<span style="float: left;"> {{#if: {{{forumtid|}}} | [http://forum.step-project.com/topic/[[ForumTID::{{{forumtid}}}]]- Forum]}}

The Mod Form/Template needs to be updated to support IPB URL's. It may be as simple as just updating those two and the information will auto-correct in the Mod pages. I'll take a look tonight.

Sadly, it won't be that easy, since the thread IDs got changed randomly as well :|

Yes, updating the templates is relatively straight forward, but we will likely need to revisit each mod page and change each forum ID :sick: (we have our smilies back)

 

Once we have and answer to the template fix, we'll let everyone know. May need some help with that!

 

Also, the main page and many of the SMW issues I fixed by refreshing the SMW data via the SMW admin functions, so all should be good now.

Thanks for verifying. Have some manual work to do then.

I can help change the mod page thread IDs if needed. I can start with the ones currently included in STEP and then work on the other 400+ later. Let me know.

I have updated the Semantic Form and the Mod Template to use the new structure. The field now takes the ID portion at the end the URL path for a thread. I have updated the Snow & Rocks HD as an example.

 

In this case, the URL to the thread is https://forum.step-p...-hd-by-darevix/. On the Wiki page at https://wiki.step-pr...now_&_Rocks_HD, edit with form, and entered the ID noted in the title [color=#ff8c00;]1358[/color]  in the Forum Thread Title field.

 

If there are any questions, let me know.

 

EDIT:  Updated based on CJ2311's info.

You don't need to enter that whole string, "1358-" is enough (the - is mandatory for it to work)

Thanks for pointing that out. Updated my post above and the Snow & Rocks HD page on the Wiki.

 

EDIT: Edited the Template so it adds the dash (-). Only the ID is required (number is enforced).

Oops, that explains why I just got a "<Must only contain numbers.>" error when editing the ID for XCE.

BTW, pack forms are still using the old template.
