Find topic by its ID


Recommended Posts


I went to invisionpower board from phpbb3, and the topic links are very different.

For example, this is phpbb3: http://www.sitename.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=88&t=21331

This is IPB: http://www.sitename.com/forum/index.php?/topic/21331-TOPIC_TITLE_HERE/


Can I find a certain topic by its id? I know the ID from phpbb3, but I can't just modify the link because I need the title too.

Thank you. :)

What do you mean by “find” the topic? Through the search function? Access in the browser URL bar? Or from within a script? …?

Regarding the address bar, you can just access the topic through /00000-something
Which means: the ID followed by a hyphen and something else. Example to access this topic:


All forwards to the same topic.
