It seems that hyperlinks aren't working in posts or in signatures.  The hyperlink links back to the post instead of the intended location.
Known issue identified right after the upgrade.  IPb received that in the initial ticket / work bundle.

They sorely need to hire some QA folks to iron out software before shipping it as final product... Sloppy.

Understood. With most changes it will take time. People complained about the WHT upgrade/change but after a few days of using the site you forget what the old one was like.

I'm about to go see WTF is going on with my IPB ticket that I sent Wednesday... Too much delay for support for a paid product.
IPB4 is much better than VBulletin 4 :)

Yep we've been aware of this problem for a while.  It's a bug from IPB's upgrade script from 3.X to 4.X.  Temporary measure is to manually update your link again.  Right now we're working with IPB Support to find a way to fix this automatically.

I need to reach out to them later again. I've been sort of busy and out of it with other stuff and a bit under the weather. Going to try to get this stuff taken care of soon as it's a pain in the ass for everyone, me included, and some other things I want to do rely on old content and other things working properly before I move forward with that.

Thanks for everyone's patience, I do appreciate it. I apologize for the issues faced, these did not occur when doing the original upgrade on the dev server from 3.4.8 to 4.0.9 and only seem to have occurred on the live server (3.4.8 to 4.0.11)

We're on 4.0.x

Hopefully the linking issues in previous content/signatures will be fixed soon. I got word back from IPB earlier in the week but the delay was on my behalf, not theirs. They have what they need now to move forward and fix the link issues.

Being lazy here... and probably repeating this...

IPb 4 doesn't work in Opera.   Replying namely doesn't work.  

I am about one more face twitch from joining their forums and tossing furniture.

All links posted on the forum, whether in a signature or post/thread that were made BEFORE the upgrade are now working again. The "location" shown on posts now are formatted properly as well.

Let me know if there are any other errors.
