    Well, you can allow the redirects to work. Otherwise, you'd need to write a fair amount of custom code to find the URL, parse it to resolve the format, then to look up the new URL to generate the link. (There's a theoretical information leak here, though really really edge case.)

    The problem is that there were multiple domain changes and directory changes over the history and it got really messy.

    I figure it wouldn't be too crazy since the threadids are the same in each url.

    Essentially this works: http://www.v6mustang.com/threads/258266/ which is better than it not working at all which is the case now.
