UPDATE April 30: This has apparently been fixed! PRAISE ALL THE THINGS. I'm so glad I didn't spend the time changing everything yet. :'D

--

Most if not all of my almost 2,000 deviations now link to the journal page in general instead of the specific journal with the license agreement. This is going to take a long time to fix, but in the meantime I have updated the front page with the correct links.

Here they are again:

LICENSE AGREEMENT/STOCK RULES

FAQ


Please let me know if you have any questions - it's going to be a long process to edit all the deviations with the correct links.

Stock providers: better check your stuff, too.

I just checked ours, it seems like if you use the "fav.me" url shortened links they still work, so that's lucky for us. Man, what a pain xc Good luck!

Hopefully not D: I checked my art account and it looks like all my commission stuff is new enough to have been not effected so that's one less headache

Yeah, I noticed the same issue today while digging through some old stuff for an article I'm working on. I'm hoping it's just a bug and they'll get it fixed.

I'd suggest getting other people that you trust to log on to this account and help you change the links if there's no other way to fix it :/ sorry about this. Good luck!

Ughh why couldn't they have done it like the username changes? (Where if you have the old name it takes you to the new one) This will aggravate lots of stock/base providers, as well as people who do lots of commissions...
Good luck with all the changes you'll have to do.

Oh, totally forgot about commissions. I better check my other account, though I think those links are newer.

Very old versions of links that used to link to a specific journal entry don't seem to work anymore

Will do :nod:   I started a while back updating some of the old ones but unhelpfully used the old journal link lol, suspect I will eventually have to do the same if only to remove legacy links that may end up broken again in the future :/

I noticed the links were messed up when I clicked on someone's FAQ link in their journal and it linked to the regular journal page instead of the actual journal. Had no idea it was messed up on deviations too O.o... Hope you get it all fixed without too many issues ^^

Yeah it's a mess for a lot of stock people because most of us do it the same way

Do you know why this happened? Has DA updated their coding or something? I havent read any of the recent updates in awhile.

I'm really not sure. I know they changed how links were formatted a while back, maybe they phased out the old versions or something. Or maybe they have been redirecting for years and now they aren't :<

hmm. I have no idea. Maybe they have been redirecting. And perhaps DA is updating some older coding that needed reworked and they didnt realize it would affect links like that or something so didnt mention anything about it.
