    I am developing a plan to fix the issue on your site. Hopefully, I will have it resolved by tomorrow.

          Still working on it. Leaving your site in Route By Node mode should keep it working for now.

            Thank you, I did switch to Route By Node immediately after testing, to prevent rioting by the masses.
            I noticed today the problem also effects the Go to Post in Search Results.

                  Ive tried to be patient, but as our forum grows, the navigation becomes more difficult.
                  Jump to new post does not work
                  the jump to last post does not work
                  the jump to Search query result post does not work.
                  often a read topic suddenly shows as unread, without any new posts.

                  Bug tracker suggests the underlying problem has been fixed. Can this please be rolled out. At least then any newly created Discussions won’t suffer from the same glitch. I can then create a duplicate topic and move the posts from the broken one.

                    Ok, it's been 4 weeks.
                    Am I entitled to be just a little bit crabby now?

                    Please, please fix our forum.

                      It isn't an easy fix. You can actually fix it by manually editing every forum and updating its URL. I am working on it. It will take time due to the high number of forums you have.

                      All forums except the ones listed here have had their URL Idents update to be proper - https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/14084

                        Hi Wayne, thanks for the response.

                        Do you mean I, personally, can edit and fix things?

                        Just having a quick look and the Topics are looking good, but the discussion URLs are still dodgy .
                        e.g.
                        https://www.diecastgarage.org/forum/...ground-choices
                        https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/3473

                        Does this mean you have to manually change every discussion URL too?

                        Thank you for plodding along with this, it must be a pain in the butt.

                          You're using Route By Node at this time. So you will be living in that system. Discussions inherit a good portion of the "URL Ident" from their parent channel. So removing the /node/xx/ from the parent channel URL and replacing it with /forum/database-aa (for example) will be inherited by every discussion in the channel.

                          The problem with your site is the /node/XX stored in the URL Ident for many channels. These channels would have been created after you turned "Route by Node" off and is why things break if you turn "Route By Node" off. You can manually change the URLS for the affected channels by going to the channel, editing the page, saving the page and updating the URL. I don't have a script to do this and even if I did, I can't run scripts on Cloud.

                            Ok, sounds like a plan.
                            Just to clarify, I do this with route by node ON and change the URL to the full path?


                            Sorry, I don't understand. I think you will need to draw me a picture.






                            ok, I think I've the hang of it, I'll give it a go, thank you.

                              When creating the new url, do I include the node number or just the page title? eg /3321-blue fish
                              How do I add titles that have a special character, such as an apostrophe. It will not let me use special characters to create the apostrophe
                              When editing the discussion page url, if it only displays a node number rather than a pathway, do I overwrite that with the full pathway?

                              eg do I replace node217 with forum/the-garage/tomica/27761-tomicarama-2020 ?

                                another query, (with simplified URL off)
                                copying the link location results in this https://www.diecastgarage.org/forum/the-garage/yatming-ag/563-random-military , however there is no yatming-ag, the subforum is called military

                                Changing topic page yatming-ag to military in the 'edit page' does not seem to change the discussion link.

                                I didn't set up the channels or subforums so I don't know if the name was changed at some stage.
