As the OP said, topic 501 is no longer topic 501 but something like topic 1234. So what used to be delivered with
showthread.php?t=501
is not necessarily the same as what is delivered with
/node/501
(but sometimes is!).

Surely the 'upgrade' wouldn't have been so clumsy as to alter the references without retaining a table somewhere, or having a fixed formula to apply? (It's bad enough that we are now showing so many broken links, due entirely to the terrible upgrade, that Google has discontinued our site from being listed!)
