Re: PowerUsers Forum broken????

Thanks for raising this @ben494 - can confirm that some of the forums are currently invisible/locked:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Creating-Apps/bd-p/PA_Creating_Apps

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Expressions-and-Formulas/bd-p/How-To

..and a few others

 

Tagging in @TopShelf-MSFT so that the team is aware of the issue.

I tried manually searching for that topic and some of mine as well, they don't show up in results (likely due to permissions).

 

I'm not sure if there is just maintenance going on in order to sort out the redirects from old topics to new or if it is some other accidental error with permissions.

The forum was updated on 9/24 to a new layout.  However, access should have been grandfathered to the existing articles in the forum.  

@chass , @TopShelf-MSFT  can you check and see why historical posts can't be accessed?  Access to these should have been preserved in the switch.

Thanks @TopShelf-MSFT

Yes, still experiencing it at the moment - Not sure whether it's the redirects or the permissions or something else.

 

For example, if I try follow one of my recent and then an older email links to other forum parts:

Sep 17:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Creating-Apps/Updating-a-drop-down-to-a-slider-and-Sharepoint-co...

Jul 22:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Expressions-and-Formulas/Delegation-warning-This-part-quot-Filte...

 

I get the following:

Thanks @LRVinNC - invisible was the wrong term for me to use!

 

Yes, the redirects that should have been preserved for older links are not working as expected. 'General Discussion' links are redirecting correctly, but links to 'Expressions and Formulas' and some of the other older categories are not working.

 

Additionally, the posts that were within those categories do not exist as far as the forum is concerned (permissions?):

About 70% of the time, the pages are blocked for me. The other 30% of the time, the pages open without a problem; it's really hit and miss, which is super annoying. Thanks for listening!

Re: PowerUsers Forum broken????

These changes also broke the webcrawler search links - many solved solutions are no longer searchable from Bing/google/etc which will result in frustration from users seeking answers. Hopefully this will get resolved soon.
