There are many links to snippets around which are in old format like http://forge.mysql.com/snippets/view.php?id=79 Currently then one tries to access such link she gets page with "Parse error".

How to repeat:
Link posted in the original description is at http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/databases/2007/07/12/getting-started-with-mysql-proxy.html... Also there are several links in olld format in texts of snippets description in Forge itself.

Suggested fix:
Redirect people to correct URL automatically or display human-redable error message.
