Old URL conversion? - Philippe Hurbain - 2016-11-15

Is there an easy way to convert old forum URL in order to find again content? (eg. http://forums.ldraw.org/read.php?19,11619,11619#msg-11619)

The conversion script should have taken care of that for the forums. As far as manually saved links, the "msg-#" is the post number and the smaller of the last 2 comma separated numbers in the URL is the thread id. The generic format is:
http://forums.ldraw.org/thread-<thread id>-post-<post number>.html#pid<post number>
Just replace <thread id> and <post number> with the appropriate number.

Nope.
That doesn't work.

Thanks. I was riffing off my memory which apparently sucks

I guess I can set up a rewrite rule for that.

Have you found the correct translation formula yet?

Not quite. I need to do some more mod_rewrite research.

Should work now.
