Online Reference Manual Links errors

While perusing the on line reference manual (to find the help page for ‘Folder’) i stumbled across 3 hyperlinks that do not work.
VASSAL Reference Manual (
The 3 in question, the first 3 on that page (Editor, Configuration Window, Editor), link to editor.html#top page. However the link should be Editor.html#top.

Excellent, thanks, I’ll get all these reference manual issues fixes for 3.6.8.

I logged one or two similar in recent weeks. Let me know if you need me to fish out the post or issue for you @Brent_Easton.

Yes please, if you could track down the issues in github and just add a comment with #11544 in the text and they will be linked. Thanks.


Hallo - I noticed that the online reference manual section on Peer-to-Peer connection is obsolete. The instructions do not seem to match what Vassal 3.6, where there seem to be two ways to go Peer-to-Peer, not just one (though I couldn’t get either to work)


What exactly is obsolete?

The options, text, graphics etc are different, I did not manage to set up a peer-to-peer session with a friend, we tried to follow those instructions but they do not seem to bear much similarity to what is currently there

Would you provide a link to the section you’re referring to?

It is page 8 and page 9 of the PDF guide here:

The peer-to-peer section here Server - Vassal instead does not say how to create it (only that it the server connection fails, Vassal would ask for a peer-to-peer)

That’s the User Guide from 3.1, not 3.6. From where did you get that link?

It is the link on the website

Go to home/documentation. Click on user guide

Thanks. I’ve replaced the file with the current User Guide from 3.6.7.

Thanks! Though the new doc still seem to be obsolete for what regards the Peer-To-Peer section.
When I click on file prefereces, this is what I see:

while the doc just sas there is one option, not 2, with a different name:
3. Choose Direct peer-to-peer, then click OK.

So still unclear how to set up a peer-to-peer

Re the first post in this series. The 1st link to ‘‘expressions’’ is also broken.

That’s fixed in the development branch; the fix will go out with 3.6.8.

If someone submits a PR on Github to rewrite the P2P docs, I’ll look at it.
