I am reading the new posts via RSS through TheOldReader (https://theoldreader.com/).
Links from the RSS are looking like "https://coderanch.com/f/24/nullposts/preList/676916/3172319"
And when click they lead not to individual thread, but redirected to the "global" forum, like that : https://coderanch.com/f/24/java-programmer-OCPJP
Is it broken currently? Any plans to fix?

Thank you for confirming!
I just get tired of the manual threads opening and decided to report, this defect is for a long time (maybe a year or two)

Where are you seeing these links? I just checked the RSS URLs being generated for both topic and forums, on both the old and the new view, and none of them looks like this - they're all fine.

please open RSS page

it has links in some weird format (see attachment).

maybe your RSS reader can handle them, but I get redirected to root forum's page.

Ah, not the links to the RSS feed, but the links in the RSS feed; I had missed that.

I see what the problem is - it will be fixed soon. For anyone following, only the forum feed is broken, the other feeds (topics, recent topics and users) are fine.

It seems the problem dates back to September or so - next time, please feel free to report problems as soon as you notice them. We're usually pretty good at fixing things :-)

@Mikalai: the deployment of Tim's fix has been done.

Please verify if everything is working as expected.
