Don't know if everyone elses browser is doing this but if i go into google and search eg "Victa vc160" and click on an odk topic, it will not load the new site.

Also if I use the search bar in the new site, nothing comes up.

Seems like website traffic has been completely killed as well as no one can get to the google results

Hi Tyler,

Yes I mentioned that when the site first moved (hosted in Australia now) , there is no way to search the site with Google etc.

Can only click on the forums link at the top of the page or active threads and go through the site that way.

Cheers

I just tried the search here and it pulled up 200 results.

As the Google results of course the links are dead as ".AU" has to be added now for the new site.

I using FF 115.6 with NoScript and ABP active.

I'm not tech savvy enough but does that mean google will map the new website .au and properly link google searches soon

Because the forum is effectively dead - cant find old topics easily and next to no new subjects as few (new or existing members) can presumably find it and there is no google traffic.

if its left as is its pretty well dead in the water

It is for the administrators to see if anything can done in that respect.

All I know it took me nearly two weeks to find my way back in from the US. I took a stab at what the change was and got lucky.

But it could be worst as it is with one of my distributors that change their database program provider. I was a royal to even get back in to only the latest price files are not even loaded and the system crosses are all screwy. At least I would need parts until Springtime so they have time to get it straighten out. And I just found another distributor is also planning a major overhaul of their system too. Both these distributor are my main part
suppliers.

Gardner change to Microsoft database system and it demand me to allow cookies with no opt out. Currently I can't accept the cookie policy as it gives Microsoft free access to my whole computer system and I got data they simply don't need access to. It is proprietary data and software.

It looking like I will have to buy a laptop just to access their system that is not connected to the WiFi and Cat6 systems here.

The ODK Online Store has a notice on the Home page that it is closed until 5th February.

Presuming the Store owner/s are also the owner of the Repair forums seems likely the current situation may not be fixed for a while.

Let's hope things can be fixed. Migrating a website is not a simple matter.

I also prefer to avoid anything to do with Google wherever possible and when using DuckDuckGo for searching the links to ODK items don't work anymore.

Hi All,

We are at present working on the forum and are hoping that we can get it sorted out by the end of the month with the search bar because it was a great asset to the forum.

As to search engines we are also looking at that as well but it will take some time to work around because of the site address being changed.

Also all the old links (online store) are still showing up and the redirection of the site is working (www.outdoorking.com) but not the old links (to products) at this stage.

The search box on the new store seems to be working ok at this stage for people trying to find parts including model number searches etc.
