I use the mobile site. If there is any link posted to another within geekzone it dumps you on the forum index page.

So there is a topic that gets locked, last post says refer to this thread i.e

 

http://m.geekzone.co.nz/Forums/164/Topic/forums.asp?forumid=97&topicid=150270 

 


There's no way to figure out what that thread is.

Fail.

Had this issue just yesterday. Looking for a solution to a problem. The search result came up on google with a snippet of what looked like my solution. You click it and as you say straight to the forum index page.

Glad I'm not the only one with this problem. Sometimes it will work if you load the desktop version of GZ.

Sometimes has been never for me. I tried to paste the address in after deleting the m. on full website. Nope

Even tried to do a search for the post number on full website. Nope

Where did you get the link in the OP? That link is not correctly formatted and wouldn't go anywhere, neither in the mobile nor the full site.

It looks like @Hammerer may have a syntax error in the link, the text of the hyperlink may have been correct.

Well, if someone posts a link that goes nowhere then we can't magically find out the correct place, can we?

Correct. I see you have edited my post, thank you for hyperlinking. Surely in this day and age it would be possible to have automatic hyperlinking? This might also save the moderators making syntax errors when linking a locked thread to another?

My mistake and this is now fixed

 

The problem: URLs to Geekzone pages, when posted from the full website, were not going to correct page when viewed on mobile site.

 

Problem: When using the rich text editor URLs to local domain were being written as relative URLs - /pagename instead of http://www.geekzone.co.nz/pagename. While the first form is correct, when used on a different domain /pagename could possibly not exist - which was the case when the mobile browser parsed the content on mobile (m.geekzone.co.nz) instead of the full site (www.geekzone.co.nz). 

 

Solution: changed rich text editor configuration to no longer use relative URLs but instead pass full URLs including domain.

 

As for the other question "Surely in this day and age it would be possible to have automatic hyperlinking?" we do hyperlinking via rich text editor only. If someone is using the full site with javascript off or with the rich text editor off then automatic hyperlinking is not supported.
