Topics' URLs are being changed to eevforum.com

This is extremely annoying: when I go to any topic, the URL is changed to eevblog.com. Now I can't copy the topic's URL or go back without being taken to the homepage. I'm sick of it, please change it back!

Dave you need to learn how to use MOD_REWRITE for apache or you will royally shaft yourself with severely reduced traffic, broken links already posted on other domains, broken links on the forum and so on. Simply moving full blown, active forums between domains is a BAD idea. Google can easily drop you completely from search results if you have exact same content on 2 different domains (not necessarily concurrently), it's an anti-content scraping mechanism.


Also, the embedded youtube window dimensions are broken - video has portrait window instead of landscape.
