    Correcting legacy links to deprecated QRZ.com URLs

    Aha! I knew there was such a tool but I hadn't used one like it in years. I almost wrote a quick script to query the QRZ.com server myself but thought there must be an easier way. Thanks!

    One compelling reason that I suspected that QRZ.com was Microsoft based was because I thought that Fred AA7BQ was a dyed-in-the-wool Microsoft man. Perhaps I was wrong. :eek:

    Anyway, if it is running on a Unix platform then surely symbolic links for the /callsign, /detail and other URL suffixes would obviate the need for complex scripts or namespaces and preserve the external legacy links to the data.

    True, but I hazard it's all htaccess mod_rewrite rules.

    I've updated the page, and the XML file which defines the search URL. Thanks for emailing me and letting me know about it.

    Changing Call Sign

    How do I change my login call sign from my old call sign KF5EIK to my new call sign W7AHR? Is setting up a new account the only way to do it? Thanks.:confused:

    Well updating the Callsign look up function was SO hard...:mad:
    I had to change from:

    http://www.qrz.com/<callsign>

    To

    http://www.qrz.com/db/<callsign>

    :D If you didn't catch it I'm poking fun at all the people that are about to complain about having to update their Software...:rolleyes:

    Of course I run linux and can change things like that very quickly...
    In fact the Call Sign look up is an set able option so I can have the log software look to QRZ or a Cd program...

    Don't be worried about changing things for the better..;)

    Glad you got around to the *simple* change 7 months later.

    didn't read it hear although it it is a direct result from the current change.

    Looks like ANY links (at least not specially defined ones) are treated as callsign lookups ... if when they don't have anything to do directly with www.qrz.com.

    I'm talking about links in the biography (check for DL6KVA) to other web servers ... links to my fotogalary and www.rdaward.org are present for years and worked till last week at least ...

    I'm sure there's a simple solution but can't find any help files to describe how I should qualify external links to have them working again.

    Thanks in advange for any help.

    Yup, looks like something was "fixed" that wasn't broken ;)
