    Hi
    since some months (years ?) i noted some topics adress in order for me to remember.
    like this one : http://www.classicpressurelamps.com/forum/showtopic.php?tid/4125/

    But now if I copy this adress in my Firefox
    I obtains this : "Connect failed: Access denied for user 'cpl_ross'@'localhost' (using password: YES)"

    what could I do to refind this topic ? and a great number of others I have in my PC

    thanks

    That is common for many old links after the platform change.
    That's why you often can see links in old threads that actually don't go anywhere.

    I think Ross can explain what this is caused by, so I tag him here.
    I don't think there is an easy fix for this.

    That particular type of link - I don't remember the cause but report them as you have them & I'll try my best to fix.

    David - same for you...

    That's a link to a post on the old forum. Most should redirect automatically. The one in your post doesn't. It could be a fault or less likely the post no longer exists.

    If you post them I will try & fix them

    unfortunately, absolutely all the adresses I have noted are from the old site
    and none are good
    I always obtains the same error's message

    thank you for the 1200 topic adress

    I don't undestand to use my bookmark list : mine is empty

    @Michel

    When giving a non-working link it would be helpful if you also gave the post where you clicked on the link.
    Having the post and the rest of the thread puts the link in context and may make it easier to find the post to which the link was pointing.

    Regards,
    Trevor

    Sorry but I am not sure to understand what you want
    You have to know that none of the old adresses are working
    - either the adress I have noted, some times ago (this one)
    http://www.classicpressurelamps.com/forum/showtopic.php?tid/495/
    - nor when I click on a old adress in a post
    for exemple : I presented a picture of my Rafale lamp here :
    Rafale lamp (Lumière Noel Ca 1920)
    If you go to this page, as you can see, this is impossible to go to the fettling work page

    Am I clear ?

    this problem is from the new site

    It will be empty until you add bookmarks. Do you not see the bookmark option at the bottom of a post?

    Those are a different issue that I can fix. I have fixed the link above. Please report these as you find them using the 'Report' link on each post
