    Thanks for bring this matter to our attention. You are correct that the URL in the above link is formatted in the prior vBulletin system, not in the current Xenforo system. However I don't see an obvious way to change the link. I'll look into it.

    You'll have to check individually, article by article.
    You have to make

    become
    HTML:

    so all you'd have to do is replace

    with

    Also, what have you done to the noparse tags?

    I now see why I couldn't edit the post directly. It lives off the Front Page rather than in the Forums. I'll have to go into WordPress to edit. I'll work on that later today -- getting late now.

    I've fixed the links in the original post plus one other. I'll continue to check the other links in the Civ III Strategy Articles and fix as needed. Please report any other broken links. Thanks.

    The link to the Civ4 subforum (i.e. the last link in the "Related Links" section that starts with "Civilization IV Info Center") on this page also returns a site error.
