should lead me to another message, but it shows me an empty forum page. Apparently this is the old link format of your forum.
One way: have a bot (script), which corrects the links in your database.
Other way: when a link like this is called: a server side script changes it.

I think, there are many old links in this forum.

Third way : when a link breaks , live with it.  Its not like there are a lot of paid people maintaining all of this.

Probably some oldish 1.x linking scheme... I'll try to see if it's easily fixable.

this is related to the server's urls rewrite. We were on apache before and now on litespeed and that's probably the cause of the issue. I'll try to place a rewrite manually.
