    Google Groups URL changes

    Those people who have got Bookmarks/Favo(u)rites pointing to any Google Groups which took their fancy will find that as from yesterday they no longer work and now all result in the Google Groups sign-up page.

    This is easily rectified by changing the URL in the Bookmark/Favo(u)rite to point to

    http://groups.google.co.uk/group/<group name>

    from the previous

    http://groups-beta.google.co.uk/group/<group-name>

    In Firefox you have to click on Bookmarks -> Manage Bookmarks, then expand out the folder where necessary, click on the Google Group Bookmark, then on the Rename button at the top (no idea why they didn't make this a right-click option!) then edit the URL by removing the "-beta"...

    Re: Google Groups URL changes

    I assume this only applies to those people who use the UK version of Google?

    Re: Google Groups URL changes

    I don't know! Have they changed the .com version from beta also?

    Yes, but quite a while ago.

    But I think the Dutch version (google.nl) also scrapped the beta from the URL very recently, like the UK version. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
