Cound the php scan the input URL, and
(A) pass it on if it is in the old format
(B) translate the URL if it is in a human-format.

You then add a button "paste URL of thread" or even "URL of post".
The additional advantage would be that the session-ID is stripped as well on these "external" links.

Looks like Ernesto solved the problem. I would love to see his code, if he doesn't mind, obviously!

I have solved this issue by using the PATH_INFO style URLs and then just appending the thread title to the URL, just like Slashdot has sovled it (To decrease database lookups, contrary to how reddit has solved it)

So a URL to a thread on my forum looks like this:
http://www.ginnunga.org/forums/t/25347/installed-windows-7-on-an-ssd-/

You can of course go directly to the page like this:
http://www.ginnunga.org/forums/t/25347/

since the final part of the URL doesn't matter, but google etc does not know that, so it works just fine.


How to solve it coding wise is to adjust a few of the rewrites in users.inc.t to understand that the final part of the URL are useless and then just have a function grab the thread/msg title, replace harmful stuff, and then append it to the link with the returned result.


Hi there,..will you tell us the procedure,,
Regards,..
