I was looking for the Wizard Handbook but all the links were broken.

Somewhere on the handbooks of other classes (on other forums) I saw a

This was archived by WotC, here's the link

But the link leads to the welcome page of WotC (since it's broken).

Is there a way to get all that info back? Do you know where to get it from?

not ideal, but have you tried the Internet Archives Wayback Machine at www.archive.org? –  wax eagle Jul 18 '11 at 12:53
I'll take a look at that when I get home. –  apacay Jul 18 '11 at 12:57
@wax I took a look, Hrm. Wayback Machine doesn't have that page archived.... that's what it says. =( –  apacay Jul 18 '11 at 13:43
Here's my favourite wizard's handbook: community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/75882/19873034/… but... I don't know how to solve this question in scale. –  Brian Ballsun-Stanton Jul 19 '11 at 12:13

Mostly not

I believe most of the forum has migrated here: http://community.wizards.com/go/forum/view/75882/136042/d20_Character_Optimization with the unfortunate requirement of most links being broken. A search on thread topic may be more profitable though.

Internal links broke during the migration from the old archive to the new one unfortunately. But as Brian suggests, you should be able to get what you need by searching. Assuming you know what you're searching for. –  Cthos Jul 20 '11 at 15:50
@Brian And also the same link wax posted. I'll take a look without following the links then. –  apacay Jul 22 '11 at 13:22
use google to search it. It's the only way. –  Brian Ballsun-Stanton Jul 22 '11 at 13:33

Delving through the depths of the IAWM, I discovered that this appear to be a live site. Hopefully it is what you are looking for.
