    I found an interesting archive page of this forum in a Google search:

    http://forums.cpanel.net/archive/index.php?f-6-p-18.html

    I would like to read these articles. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be hypperlinked. Does anyone know how to access these archives? Curiously, searches for specifice articles listed in the above link come up "not found".

    Thanks,


    Drew Mathers

    They're just copies of existing threads within the forum in an alternative format (i.e. simpler). All the links worked for me.

    Ah, OK. The forums don't allow thread viewing without an authenticated login, which is what you've discovered :) Odd that it even allows a thread listing.

    Jonathan,


    The hyperlinks seem to depend on your forum login status. I can watch them switch on and off by loggin in and out. I originally found the page through a Google search, so I wasn't logged in to this forum at the time. It's an interesting vBulletin quirk worth noting.
