Merged towards the wrong topic, now Need Redirect

Post by djp2 » Fri Mar 25, 2011 2:42 am

Bum. I got it wrong when I merged two topics. I wanted the other way round.

So now I have viewtopic?t=1418 as the merged topic and I really wanted the merged topic as viewtopic?t=654

Is there anyway to move the thread now ?

Google has indexed this thread under the 654 thread and that now shows that the thread doesn't exist. I need it to come back under that topic ID.

I tried changing the topic_id in the phpbb_topics table in phpmyadmin but that isn't enough. Something else is needed. Can I redirect somehow or change it back ?

Please help ! thanks.

OK let me answer my own questions.

I got what I wanted by something similar to.

Code: Select all

update phpbb_posts set topic_id=654 where topic_id=1418
update phpbb_topics set topic_id=653 where topic_id=1418
Now I just need to see if I can have like a 301 redirect that I'm missing from when I stuffed up the merge in the first place.
