Hint: automatic redirect for old forum with firefox addon
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.
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
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.
