Title: No Blue Cups
Post by: Gurok on 08 Jun 2014, 20:42
Couldn't find a better place for this.

When searching through old threads for AGS scripting tips, there are often posts with links to bigbluecup.com. It's a pain to modify the links all the time, so I wrote this Greasemonkey script that does it automatically.

Tested in Firefox. Could we someday get a find+replace done on the database to fix this for good?

It's not necessarily as simple as that.  Although forum links are the same, the layout of the rest of the site has changed several times over the years.  So just pointing stuff to an address on ags.co.uk won't necessarily fix it...

Ah, right. I should clarify. My little script only replaces links to forum posts on the old bigbluecup.com site.

Well I suppose I could search for 'bigbleucup.com/yabb' and change those.  I'll have a look at some point.

with smf it's really as simple as dumping the database, find+replace and reimporting the database. If you know what to search for and replace it 'should' work like a charm. The worst thing is probably the threads afterwards that complain about the forum beeing unavailable for some time ;)
