    I’m assuming that you are referring specifically to internal links to former discussions. most of the links were already updated. The ones that still appear as either eat.at/… or finkerkitchens.com/… were not able to be programmatically changed when I migrated the site. What you can do is contact me and I can manually edit it to the new url/link. I’ll need the link to the post where you found the link that needs updating. Also I sent you a private message a couple of weeks ago. but I see that my question is partially answered here.

    I sent a new reply to your pm.

    Just wondering if there was a formula to manually edit links so we didn’t have to ask you each time 😁

      there isn’t unfortunately because the structure is different. Otherwise I would just do a search and replace on the whole database. I was able to do a simple algo during the migration to fix some of the links but not all. I can go into the old database and identify the links most of the time then I can match up content to get the url of the discussion as it is here now.
