I often do a search on the old forums but don’t want to always change forum.daz3d.com to forumarchive.daz3d.com manually.

Here is a solution I found for my firefox which works great without editing hostfiles etc.

Download:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/redirector/

Add a new redirect in the addon settings:

Description: DAZ Forum Redirect (or whatever description you like)

Example URL: http://forum.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=180260&sid=747540fd78f1631d0a953979f68ccd3a
(this is only to check if redirect works)

Include Pattern: http://forum.daz3d.com/(.*)

Redirect To: http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/$1

Pattern Type: Regular Expression

Unescape matches: off
Escape matches: off
Enable: on

Now you can save the pattern or test it. Works easy and nice in the background.
Also all your old forum bookmarks will now work again.

You know what would be epic?  Could you expand this plugin to change the

postimages/origimage_1_3096345.png 
code to read
http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/postimages/origimage_1_3096345.png 

?  Do that and inline images would work…

Example URL: postimages/origimage_1_3398831.jpg
Include pattern: ^postimages/(.*)
Redirect to: http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/postimages/$1


If you click ‘Test pattern’, it says:

The pattern ^postimages/(.*) matches example URL postimages/origimage_1_3398831.jpg, and would redirect you to url: http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/postimages/origimage_1_3398831.jpg

Unfortunately, because the screwed up images don’t render as links, it doesn’t do anything useful.

It does a redirect on click rather than a rewrite on load, so if nothing gets clicked, there’s no change. Since the former images show up as unprocessed html tags… Yeah. Doesn’t do anything to them.

Thanks! This works very well.


A solution to show most of the images (except product images from the old store and ArtZone Galleries) and to repair some formatings is the extension FoxReplace.


I have made a description on my new Homepage. There is also a first substitution for the import in FoxReplace. I hope that helps for some of the problems with the old forum.
