    Default How to access posts on old board

    Hi Ladies and Gents,
    Go to the old board
    http://www.rafcommands.com/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi
    Select the forum eg General
    Click on archive on top right of table.
    Click page 446 etc on top right
    Select the required thread
    Or use the old board search function but click the "search archives box" and limit the period to 1 year.
    Regards
    Ross

    Ross,

    Keep an eye on the vbulletin import system, they are listing Dc forums as a possible addition to impex, if that happens then you can convert the posts from the old board to here.

    Hi Lee,

    I'm advised by the support department that it is for DCForum+ not the early DCForum 6x series.

    So no joy at the moment.

    Regards

    I tried to search the archive on the old board but a get a message from 'Easyspace' with a pretty red elephant and the message

    Error 500 - configuration error.

    What am I doing wrong or do not have?

    Thanks

    As I you do not say what your search terms were or the limits you put on it I'm firing blind here.

    Try this.

    Go to the old board.

    Click the search icon

    Put the following into the keyword(s) box

    142 Sqn

    leave all the defaults but these two

    Search how many days into the past
    change this from Search All to Last 1 Year on the pull down menu

    Also search the archived threads
    Tick this box

    Then hit Search Now after a few moments a large list of threads will appear.

    I've tried this and it works both at my work and at home. If nothing appears then it is how your browser acts rather than the board search software.

    Is it still possible to access posts on the old board? If so, I confess to failing totally and could use some guidance.

    Thanks,

    Yes, they are still there, what are you looking for: One message or everything?

    I've to admit I can't seem to get into the topics list of the archive just right now but using the google site:rafcommands.com search certainly does work still.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I am trying to find a thread that I think I started, don't recall the date. Do I have to log in? I have tried and it doesn't accept my log in name/password.

    No, the old board is dead, no longer accessable, it is an Ex forum. You cannot log in, can't search from the old board itself, but you can search from Google.

    For example I want to find an old thread containing the Airman porteus as above.

    when searching in Google

    using the string in the search box

    porteous site:rafcommands.com that will allow google to search within RAFcommands domain for that word and return each example it finds.

    Can you please suggest what your looking for as we have four posts here now and getting no where, what was the subject of the thread your looking for, any details at all I'm sure it can be found.

    Here are some of your old posts:
