    I amnot allowed to view a page in Ubuntuforums.. Why?

    Hi. I am a lont time user of Linux but do not contribute much as Im not realy savvy with code and as such only visit here when I get stuck.
    Why am I not allowed to view this page: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1117283 ? It contains information on Winff..
    I can find the resolve somewhere else Im sure but I am confused as to why I cant simply view the page?
    Hope to get an answer otherwise no dramas.. Cheers. Gabe

    The thread you are not able to view is an unmaintained tutorial which was moved to an area inaccessible to anyone but forum staff, so as not to have obsolete information publicly visible. Sorry you have been inconvenienced.

    However, circumstances have changed since the thread was moved and it is possible that the thread starter might be interested in bringing it up to date again. I will contact them to see if they wish to do this, so thank you for bringing this up.

    By the way, where did you find the link to that thread? We sometimes get queries about links on the community wiki leading to inaccessible forum threads, and it may be necessary to edit the wiki page.

    Thanks for getting back.

    Regarding the tutorial, I've been in contact with the author but for various reasons it is not feasible to bring it up to date, so it can't be made accessible again. Thank you also for posting the location of the thread that linked to it. I've edited the post in question to remove the link so that others don't follow a now dead trail.

    Good luck in resolving your problem. May I suggest that you start a new thread requesting help if you still need it. Much has happened since the tutorial and the thread you found with the development of forks of the libraries needed for what you want.
