Yep - the Tech section has been MIA for a few months now.

By chance, do you know where the content used to be linked to so we can make an attempt to restore the links?

Re: All Tech Links on This Site = 404 Not Found

All the Tech section documentation was stored in the /tech/ directory. The Tech section was implemented using a package called Knowledge Builder or KnowledgeBuilder. Unfortunately, there are multiple products with that name.

Hey. Sorry for not following up on this sooner. I got someone from Tech to dig into the database and he was able to find the tech article sections.

https://www.customtacos.com/tech.old/index.php?page=index_v1&c=4

They can be found by adding .old before /index to the URL as seen above.

https://www.customtacos.com/tech.old/index.php?page=index_v1&c=4

https://www.customtacos.com/tech.old/index.php?page=index_v1&c=6

https://www.customtacos.com/tech.old/index.php?page=index_v1&c=7

https://www.customtacos.com/tech.old/index.php?page=index_v1&c=8

If these are the articles, we can get this restored.

Alan:

Yes - those archived files appear to be most, if not all, of the missing Tech section.

As I recall, the Tech articles were under heavy attack from hackers (particularly spamming the comments and ratings features) some years ago, and those features were turned off after a while.

Since those spammed-up features were taken off line, I don't know that they were ever cleaned up.

If you're going to do a recovery / re-installation, can you simply delete any and all comments and ratings data when you do so?

Thanks for digging into the problem!

Thanks for the info. When you get the chance, can you find me one with some comments as an example?

Thanks
