Switch from TAGS to TAG broke links in posts and "Delete Unused Tags"

Our forum software was updated to version 2.8.0.beta6 about two weeks ago.

  • Previously tags was used in the URL for the overview as well as for individual tags. But now the latter requires tag in the URL, so all links in existing posts take you through to the Oops! That page doesn’t exist or is private. page.
    • I made extensive use of such links in this table. I could have updated the URLs, but that would reset the click counters.
    • By pure luck I noticed today, that there is a redirect in place, but it only works in the composer’s preview or if you enter / edit a URL in the address bar. So, as a workaround users have to refresh the page.
  • Also Delete Unused Tags seems to be empty. However we have some reserved, but unused tags.

Not knowing how and when you are going to solve this, I went ahead and updated the tag-links in the table as this inconvenienced our users.

Here is a repro of the redirect bug: getting-started (press F5 to get redirected)


For Delete Unused Tags I do not have a workaround.

Wrong. We switched to tags listed by group yesterday. As a side effect unused tags are displayed at the end of their groups.
