New Download URL Causing me fits.


Recommended Posts

Recently upgraded from 3.4.9 to 4.1.9 and one issue that is causing me fits is the new URL format.  Google is reporting broken links, users upset....

Old link: http://<forum homepage>/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=<file id number>

New link: http://<forum homepage>/index.php?app=downloads&module=downloads&controller=view&id=<file id number> which is further changes to the newer friendly url.

My question, do the background scripts parse over the posts and correct these links to the new format, has someone done a script to run through the posts database and find all these broken links and correct them and lastly, will Google eventually pick up the new links and stop complaining?

Thank you for suggestions on dealing with this.
