Subject: RE: Tech Hints PermaThread™
I've noticed something with the links posted in many threads - they link to ragtime, loki, shorty, or www.mudcat. If you're posting links in the Forum, it's best to leave out the first part of the URL - for a thread, it would be
<a href=/thread.cfm?ThreadID=38686>click</a> - click
For a song in the Digital Tradition, it's best to use the URLs that come up in the Digitrad and Forum Search (SuperSearch), without the title information that's at the end of the URL
<a href=/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=4542>click</a> - click
In the Help Forum, you do need the before the URL.

If you have links with ragtime, shorty, loki, or dharma in them, those links won't work if that particular server is down or done away with. We'll always have www, but it may be down at times. We will most likely do away with the blue DigiTrad search box, so any URLs posted from it will no longer work.
