Hi

Is there any way that I can edit the address (url) of a new topic.

Thanks

You mean:

http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=498006

What would you want to change it to?

OK, I'll go into a little detail.
I have 2 forums at the minute (one old & one new) which are for the same club.
The old one was hit with problems that I won't go into but it had to be suspended. I then started up a new one (to continue where the old one stopped).
I now would like to be able to start a new topic that will take me directly to the corresponding topic in the old forum.
I know I can create a new topic and put a post in that topic with a link to the old forum but I'd woderered if there is a way of going direct.
For example, my forum is

http://www.nova-international.net/nova_forum_2/phpBB/

and just as an example if I put another topic into the forum entitled "Old Your Cars" I'd like to edit the address so that when clicked on it would take me to the old forum instead.

Thoughts/ideas?

Thanks

There is a mod somewhere that allows you to create a forum, which is actually a link to another website... I dont know if you could do that easily with a topic though.
