View Full Version : Maybe a little bit of clean up after the move?

A lot of the threads that were moved over from www.vbadvanced.com have responses that, rather than answering the users question directly, link to another thread that answers the users question. The problem with this is that the links go to threads that are no longer existant.

Here's one example: http://www.photopost.com/forum/showthread.php?t=119595

Can some of these be cleaned up?

That I know of when you import threads it will auto give the thread a new ID (what ever is next in line).

What a mind boggle.

I wouldn't even know where to begin on how to rewrite all those links considering the ids all changed during the import. Any ideas?

Seems to me it'd be easier to just delete the threads that only contain links to other threads and not solutions as you come across them. Assuming that the threads to which they link are here also, they're just superfluous threads imho.
