Description

(reported on facebook, reproducing here)

The in-program doc link leads to the old makehuman site, in practice an empty page.

Should probably point to the wiki instead, if anything.

Not sure exactly what link the original post was talking aboutt, but here are some specifics:

Help > Support > Manual --> Sends to MH website with a broken center page misdirected URL http://www.makehuman.org/404.php
should this point to the community Wiki? http://www.makehumancommunity.org/wiki/Main_Page

Help > Support > Report bug --> misdirected URL to http://bugtracker.makehuman.org/issues/new?project_id=makehuman
should be: http://bugtracker.makehumancommunity.org/projects/makehuman

Help > Support > Request feature --> misdirected URL to http://bugtracker.makehuman.org/issues/new?project_id=makehuman&issue[tracker_id]=2
should be same as previous: http://bugtracker.makehumancommunity.org/projects/makehuman

Help > Support > Forum --> sends to : http://www.makehuman.org/404.php
should be: http://www.makehumancommunity.org/forum/

Help > Support > FaceBook page -- Operates as expected

Additional observations:
  • Seems that bug and feature end up at the same place. Should they be merged to single button?
  • We have no link to MakeHuman Community Home page which is a new landing spot
  • * http://www.makehumancommunity.org/

It would be wise to fix these things before a new release!!!!
Low priority but low hanging fruit

The landing page for the community is pretty boring atm.

But I fixed the other links in https://bitbucket.org/MakeHuman/makehuman/commits/55f4570dc8ca35d299e10c0dff596fb1c63e489e

#6 Updated by Jonas Hauquier over 2 years ago

I think the real bug was that all links on the makehuman.org domain have been broken.
How hard would it have been to put some redirects there to at least ensure these links kept working?
