Yes, and to the new source code for the forum software. At this moment, my inclination is to mod the source code so as to make the emitted HTML contain an old-format anchor (<a name="12345">) as well as a new style div ID (<div id="p12345" ... >). That would restore to operation old links no matter where they are kept, for example in Google search results, in other forums, and in email communications. Maybe somebody has an extension that already does this. If not, then it's "just" a matter of finding and tweaking some PHP code. The major challenge may be in finding the code to be tweaked, since the phpBB software tree has now grown to over 500K lines of PHP.iconoclastica wrote: ↑Sat Jun 27, 2020 3:05 amDo you have access to the database?rjlittlefield wrote: ↑Fri Jun 26, 2020 9:12 pmJust so you know, I have encountered a couple of bugs in the upgraded forum:
- I was too optimistic when I thought that all saved URLs would still function properly. It turns out that there has been a slight change in the use of anchors, so that old format URLs that reference specific postings will no longer jump to the correct place on the page. (The change is that what used to be "#12345" is now "#p12345".) I have no idea yet what to do about that either.
