Hopefully, bookmarks and links in posts will still work?

That seems to be a negative. All index posts are now broken.

For example:
http://forum.filmspotting.net/index.php?topic=14221.0
None of the links in the first post (or any other post that links within the forum) currently work.

Basically, there needs to be a redirect under the old url:
Code: [Select]
http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?[parameters]to the new one:
Code: [Select]
http://forum.filmspotting.net/index.php?[parameters]

Not yet.

The parameters, i.e. the ?query and #fragment parts of the url, need to be passed along as they were from the old to the new url upon redirect. Otherwise, as it currently happens, you either just land on the forum homepage or on the 404 error page.

The links in the Marathon index here.
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.
