View Full Version : Make links work again?

05-05-2010, 02:15 AM

I was only recently made aware of an issue: quite often in my posts, when I want to point issues that have already been discussed, I use links to the respective threads, posts etc. But as your company changes names (used to be Acresso, now it's Flexera Software), if you no longer keep records and redirections of old names, the old links won't work anymore, and for new people that arrive on the links, it might not be obvious why the links won't work.

So this is what I suggested here: http://community.flexerasoftware.com/showpost.php?p=454760&postcount=15
Would it be possible to do a global search and links of all occurrences of acresso software in links in order to make links work again?

No one from Flexera Software Web Team thinks this a good idea?!?

I'm not sure there is an easy fix for this but we will look into it.

Most likely it involves touching the MySQL DB... but well, it would be a very nice to have!...

Are the acresso community links currently not redirecting to flexerasoftware?

Actually now they're. So it was a transitory issue? I thought it was permanent, this is why I suggested this...
