  • Quite a few links seem to be borked. Anythign that can be done about that? Or do we just re edit the posts?

  • Can the old forum URL redirects implement support for links to specific post numbers? ( eg https://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1434585&p=46461828&viewfull=1#post46461828 ) I have a massive collection of bookmarks from over the years to posts with code snippets/tools/information that are within threads with a lot of pages. Currently it just redirects you to page 1 of the thread.

  • Yeah I can probably make it so that post links link to the moved posts. If you could post a list of your links that you want to still work, that's be great for testing. https://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1434585&p=46461828&viewfull=1

  • Gotcha. Here's a few different URL formats with some side notes - although I don't think the GET variables have changed much since circa 2011 or longer. Mostly seems to be adjustments to URL rewrites. Anything before then is probably rubbish anyway. Some of these aren't multipage but still serve as an example. https://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1569948&p=52422712 (same format as in your post, almost all of my bookmarks are in this format or the one with fragment below) http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1341204&p=43469693&viewfull=1#post43469693 (same format as above, but with URL fragment that brings you to the post - since post #ids are different now it's probably not worth implementing since it'd require JS to parse the legacy one) http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1444245&p=46844020&viewfull=1#post46844020 (same as above) http://www.facepunch.com/threads/threads/826999-Ragdoll-has-no-Physics-Objects?p=17755416 (not a multipage thread, but the /threads/threads/ seemed noteworthy and it does bring you to the correct thread) http://www.facepunch.com/threads/threads/showthread.php?t=979552 (similar to above, but without SEO title in the URL) http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1449139&page=5 (this was bookmarked as "VProf Profiling" but I had saved the page number instead of the post, not sure there's much you can do about that since default # of posts per page changed. Maybe let users adjust posts per page like vbulletin has? It was meant to go with this post by Willox which is now on page 7) http://www.facepunch.com/showpost.php?p=32614030&postcount=3351 (this is an ancient URL style, however this post is in the drop dead section and I couldn't find an example that exists on this forum. another one that probably isn't worth implementing) Let me know if you'd like some more examples.

  • My threads and posts were never carried over, is this still an issue?

  • Something like “Jump to correct answer” being added to the OP of a solved question would be very useful.

  • Have made the post redirect - can you let me know if it's behaving like you expect?

  • My thread here got cutoff in the transfer, but didn't hit any sort of length limit since I can still edit in more at the bottom.
