BlitzBasic Archive Redirector!
« on: September 25, 2017, 18:13:26 »
Hello everyone!
I got a bit tired of clicking on old blitzbasic.com/blitzmax.com links and getting a error since the domain is now dead.
So I made a Chrome Extension that redirects those two dead URLs to point to the wasted.nz archive (since the url IDs are the same)


Enjoy! :)

Yeah but then you have to manually find it after clicking on a dead link from this site (particularly in the Modules area).
This extension just instantly redirects a dead link.

Thanks!
I'm not a Chrome user, but seeing how to convert the urls was a help. ;)

Yeah unfortunately I don't know how the Firefox extensions work, so it's limited to chromium based browsers as of now.

I just updated all the dead Blitz links in the Modules list and Blitz Toolbox topics last night. They now point to the webarchive.
