New SCN is here. It’s exciting to see SCN with new look and feel. 🙂

After few minutes of browsing, I came across this thread http://scn.sap.com/thread/3143009. Is this true? Has all my old content gone forever? When i tested one of my saved old URL, the result was negative. 🙁

A few minutes of research has given me a sigh of relief because old content did not vanish, it is still there.

Only thing is I have to slightly twist,tweak the URL.

Here it is how it works !

URL for messages:

When I execute this saved URL http://forums.sdn.sap.com/thread.jspa?messageID=10829297&#10829297, it took me to SCN landing page but not to the message discussion thread which I had expected.

This is a kind of panic situation because I have saved this URL to review a valuable discussion on a specific topic.

Gave me a sense of thought “is it gone?”

Nope, nothing is lost …you still have it. However, you will have to tweak the URL as shown in the following example to retrieve your content.

Ex: Suppose Old link is http://forums.sdn.sap.com/thread.jspa?messageID=10829297&#10829297. New link will be http://scn.sap.com/message/10829297

Now try this and see…you will be directed to the exact location where you intend to go.

URL for Thread Id’s:

You got to do nothing. paste the URL in the browser, you will be directed to the designated location.

Ex: http://forums.sdn.sap.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2085344&tstart=0

Saved Bookmarks:

Saved bookmarks are directed to the designated location automatically. You do not have to modify anything.

Ex: http://scn.sap.com/people/pravin.datar/blog/2009/08/28/automate-execution-of-any-data-manager-package

A small workaround……you can access all your content ‘as is’.

Happy communicating 😀 .

    Thanks for sharing the tip on how to forward the message URLs.

    This is only one variation of the old forum message URL:

    As you pointed out, the first variation does not redirect but the second variation, the standard one, does. Regardless, both should redirect automatically and this was reported Wednesday to be fixed (progress has been made).

    In the meantime, the work around mentioned will help users.
