Can't get to any wiki2 links.

Searching through the forums I sometimes find a recommended link to wiki2.archlinux.org.

Every time I click the link it goes to some site called supertaf which seems to be a site that pays you for advertising them on your website.

What is going on?

How do I get to these links?

Because the wiki is now at wiki.archlinux.org, without the "2".

Can we do the equivalent of a massive sed'ing of the phpbb db? Because that breaks a lot of resources and will annoy a lot of people who don't know the situation.

Good question... I think the mod team may have to do it all manually

Re: Can't get to any wiki2 links.

Does this mean that all the links I find with wiki2 should go to the right place if I just change the wiki2 part of the link to wiki?

I tried two links referred to in a thread called "making arch faster" -
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php? … rch+faster

They were:

http://wiki2.archlinux.org/index.php/Post installation tips   and
http://wiki2.archlinux.org/index.php/Sustituyendo a Hotplug con LSHWD

When I changed the links to just wiki... instead of wiki2... they went to a wiki with the right heading "Post Installation tips" and "Sustituyendo a Hotplug con LSHWD" but there was no text in either one.

Re: Can't get to any wiki2 links.

It might be better if you do a search in the wiki.  It's not only the url that has been changed.  The format of the wiki was recently changed from php to media wiki.  Probably some documents got reorganised.
For example, the two above links are now:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pos … ation_Tips
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Rep … with_LSHWD

Will do a search in future for other wiki2 links I come across as you suggest.

Thanks a lot for the correct links.

Just out of curiosity - why is that marketing junk on the domain at all?
