Hi ADA!

Some time ago, the URLs for forum threads changed. This means that links posted in forum threads pointing to other forum threads are now dead.

Would it perhaps be possible to run some script on the database to automatically fix these links to point to the correct URLs?

This doesn't fix external links of course, but it still could be quite useful when navigating around the forum. :)

Another possibility would be to leave the links as they are, but implement an automatic redirect from the old URLs to the new ones. That would also handle external links.

Should be easy thing to do. I'll look into this when I find some time!
Can you point me to a page with one of those links? :)

In this thread, in my post from 6 Feb 2012, there is a link entitled "my cruncher" leading to the thread about the cruncher.
