How to convert the old post link to the new one.

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm not sure if here is the best place for this topic.

When I'm reading the post, due to it's old, the links people posted is something like http://tama-zone.com/index.php?showtopic=18431 , and it's not working in my browser, it will become something like http://ww12.tama-zone.com/ . The current post link is like  https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/147555-title/    

I'm just wondering how can I convert the old link to current ones?

Cheers

So old topics usually take the form

http://tama-zone.com/index.php?showtopic=$TOPIC

Where $TOPIC is the topic ID. To get a link that works with the new site, try something like:

https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tamazone/-t$TOPIC.html

So for example, http://tama-zone.com/index.php?showtopic=18431 becomes https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tamazone/-t18431.html.
