Getting to new-forum post/thread from old forum UR
Mar 26th, 2007 at 4:52pm
 
Should be obvious, and it's becoming painfully obvious me as I dial in links in the guide to reflect locations of the new-forum's posts/threads .. but .. if you have the URL for a post/thread at the old forum, you can (easily?) get to the same post/thread at the new forums by
copy-n-pasting the post/thread number
into the following (partial) URL .. like so >>>

Say, for example, you have the URL for the following post regarding Norton Ghost 12:

http://radified.com/cgi-bin/YaBB/YaBB.cgi?board=general;action=display;num=11718...

You can get to the
same post
at the *new* forum by using the following action:

http://radified.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1171883635

See the pattern?

They both use the post number (num=1171883635)

So you simply copy-n-paste the
post number
into this partial URL:

http://radified.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?

.. and voila! You get the same post at the new forums.

Here it is withOUT the link:

Code:
http://radified.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?

I updated the FAQ's.  Noticed one other *nuance* that could be added here:

When changing an old url that referred to a different thread page and starting post, the OLD url looked like:
  ...display;num=1234567890;start=15#24

To modify this to the NEW url format, it should look like this:
  ...yabb.pl?num=1234567890/15#24

Yeah, I noticed that, too, and have been making the change, altho it still seems to work with the old format (start...)
