When the forum went from zero to vBull there was a way to re-write saved links, references etc. I can't seem to be able to do this for this new format.

All of my saved sites in browser are dead, all FAQ links in Corrado forum are dead (just as 2 instances)/

I tried rewriting the URL, but since a lot of threads do not have the posts title, I have no idea how to make them valid again.

for instance:

A valid URL (Note title and thread ID)

<www.vwvortex.com/threads/corrado-faq-read-this-first.562390/?id=562390>

Old link from FAQ

"https://www.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=736260"

The Thread ID should be valid, I tried the following (along with many other variants) w/o success.

"https://www.vwvortex.com/threads/?id=736260"

If we can not get to old threads from old references then I see the vwvortex finally rendered useless and the final stake driven in.

Maybe I have finally figured it out:

if you append the thread ID onto the following it will take you to the thread: <https://www.vwvortex.com/showthread.php? + Thread ID

So this works:
