How to repair broken links to the old BB

I don't want to cross post or hijaak this topic: Trying to capture Serial Numbers So here is a new one:


search the board for kixomatic.
with it you should see what is possible.

I've found:
where can I get KIXOMATIC;f=13;t=000318#000000

Lonkero already answered the quoted question in the serial number topic.

Since I've read that MCA is still busy converting the old posts there must be a manual way to repair one broken link. Is there someone who can tell me how to do this..

think MCA is busy doing other thinks.
anyways, the automated way is not the same as manual.

when you do it manually, you need to search for keywords.
in the link you see the forum where it is but that's about it.
next, if you have link that has "title" in it instead of pure URL, you can search for that.

if you don't, you need to search for all topics in that forum (this does not properly work in ubb.threads) by revealing all topics:

oh, btw, you shouldn't do this if you love yourself.
not sure if the board allows either (tested with little lower numbers)

and finally, best way to find old info is to ask.
moderators (aka mods aka moderations aka aliens) and old dudes most likely know where to search if not even know the exact topic.
like the link I showed you on the another thread shows, my suggestion to search for kixomatic was right.

So there isn't a standard way to do this.. Like for example change into

MMM well, Since you are the number one poster of this BB your answer justifies my ADSI Kixomatic question in the serial number topic

Re: How to repair broken links to the old BB

no, there is not.
the topic numbers were converted to thread main numbers and deleted topics (entries) were removed, thus the indexing is totally off base.
only way to do it trustworthy is to have something from the old board or the conversion table to match against.

k, good that could help.
