  • I believe that's what he meant (and this is what I see). From the user's perspective it needs to be a direct link. Again, from the user's perspective localization issues should not be a problem (the FAQ should be displayed in the same language as the user's preference or in English).

    Understood. It's a platform limitation. The question has been raised before. This is the official answer.

  • Click on the link at the right (right above 'My Forum Links') and you get this message. I think it was reported here before.

  • My text is different.

    I see this...

     

    The Frequently Asked Questions has Moved

     

    The Forums help file has been moved to the Community Wiki. Please update any bookmarks you may have.

     

    =================

    And what does Jan mean about this: "Can the link be adapted to the new URL?"

     

    What does that mean? Are you asking to have the original forum link just go straight to the Wiki page?

    Assuming that's the question... the answer is no. They needed to leave that page as the landing page in the forums because the original content is still available in the other languages. So it's a localization issue.

    Thanks!
