How to convert links from previous site

Is there a method to convert links to specific topics/posts to the new system? For example, I have a link to a post in this format:

http://fmforums.com/forum/showtopic.php?tid/196029/post/294075/#294075

or:

http://fmforums.com/forum/showpost.php?post/266405

or to a topic:

http://fmforums.com/forum/showtopic.php?tid/172518/

All these lead to an error page now: Error code: 2T187/2

These url formats were from the legacy system before the last upgrade. I will look at my filemaker database i have that i copied all the old threads into and see what the topic was and the corresponding new url for these topics.

​These URLs worked until the last upgrade. I have about a hundred of them, legacy from what used to be my blog here.

BTW, I see that some links in older posts were converted and are working, and some not.

comment when i get home could export the post table with the topic titles and old post numbers as FMP that way you could possibly cross reference them

I may actually have the conversion table which was a join table  it took the old ID > new ID was used via a defunct php script.

Hi Stephen,

I gave you the titles of the Threads, and have of the threads on my Hard drive.

I also have the files that were uploaded.

@comment, would you prefer the file names or the links?
