If I click on any link to this forum from a Google search, I get a forum error.

For example, try clicking on the first link here:
https://www.google.ca/search?q=worl...-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=3aiHVpmELInPeP-ogfAO
It has this URL, which doesn't work: http://boards.openpandora.org/boards/index.php?threads/worldwide-gp2x-sold-units-estimation.5641519/

I tried this with other thread titles from the former GP32X forum, and got the same result.

Also, are there any plans to get people who click links to the previous GP32X forum to redirect to the correct place? The reason I ask is that I was checking to see if the Wikipedia reference for the GP2X sales numbers (which linked to a post on the GP32X forum) still had a working URL. It didn't:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_handheld_game_consoles#cite_note-gp2x_sales-6
http://www.gp32x.de/board/index.php...units-estimation/page__p__641396&#entry641396
I imagine there might be lots of other similar links to former forum threads that no longer work.

The first one is still in the search engine from a time when I had the test setup... the URL has changed when I did the real import.
The correct thread ID for the post you mentioned is 41220, whereas google still links to the old 5641519.
It should fix itself after a few weeks automatically.

About the URLs with gp32x.de:
The URLs redirection itself is working, however, gp32x.de has been bought by a domain broker and he wants at least 500 USD for it.
The same links with gp32x.de work fine.

Not much I can do, unless someone decides to buy the domain name and let me do the redirects.

Oh, okay. :) That's a shame. I wonder if the price would go down after a while.

Also, it's interesting that the quotes in that thread look really weird (the content of the post itself is quoted, not just the quote)

When i do a new Post then i do not see my own Post or the Entire Thread more with the "new Posts" Button.
Only when another Person post in this then it do reappear in that List.
Any Way to fix that?

Threads dissapear for me in that List when i wrote the last Post.

That's because that's the unread posts link, not the recent activity link. If you click the arrow that points up and to the right on the right end of the navigation bar, you'll find a link to the "Recent Activity" page on the left of the panel that pops up.

@EvilDragon I just wanted to thank you for all the work that you've done. I was doing some random searching, and it brought a tear to my eye discovering that all the threads and posts from GP32x are still around, and will continue to be so for some time (even my username, wow!). I had an enormous amount of fun in those days, and it's nice to look at things as they once were. :)

You're welcome :)
It's always great to see members from back then coming to these boards.
I basically grew up on gp32x.com as well :)
