  • UBB import could include data re old thread's URL, to facilitate redirects

    Here's one for the wish list: as part of an import of UBB data, it would be super if the database were to contain the UBB thread's URL, so that the process of redirecting old links (specific thread URLs) would be easier.

    It's hard to determine now (after the import) which vB thread number holds a particular UBB thread, and I'd like to be able to do particular file redirects for some important threads to which other sites had made direct links.

    No biggie, but would be nice.

    Heck, if it could be done as a flat-file, for all the imported threads ... say, old UBB thread URL, space, vB thread URL, newline ... then it would feed in nicely to some kind of perl-scripted redirect script that Apache could tap into on encountering a 404.
