IIRC, all links to SDMB threads were broken when we switched to Discourse and this can’t be fixed. Is this correct?
Part of the reason I ask this is because, at least as far back as 2015, old posts sometimes have the Discourse automatically generated links at the bottom of them that occur when someone does the @ username in a different thread. I’m not sure what they are called but the most famous on the board would be the “Dumbest Lawyer” one. This function wasn’t in place on the old board. I understand they are different functions, however I don’t understand how they work.
Another part is one of the mods, @engineer_comp_geek I think, said something a few months ago about Google crawling the new board and updating links. Do I understand correctly that would only work if you are googling something and has nothing to do with board function?
