Knowledge base

I was going to use some of the stuff in the knowledge base sections to show some folks how "this" works and how "that" works, only to discover that many of the links no longer seem to work. Ditto in the "guide for beginners" section where, for example, the link to "engine system overview" now links to "Page not found"

Jon - If you would like me to (I know you're busy) I can go thru these links and give you list of the ones that seem to have gone astray in the course of time, so they can be either updated or deleted

Sure, thanks. Feel free to start a wiki page on this, if that's easier for you. (ie: an article titled "Knowledge Base broken links").

knowledge base - broken links

Well so far, I have chased down every link, by category and sub-category in the "Engines" section of the Knowledge Base (Sheesh! There are a LOT of links!)

People have done a LOT of very good work in compiling this. However, over time, some have changed or are no longer valid

I was going to do it as a wiki, but for some reason, the wiki area gives me "issues", so here it is (for now). I'll go in and do the rest of the categories as well, hopefully within the next few days.

What I have found for broken, non-functioning etc links are:
