Old threads link usernames to posts, not users January 18, 2005 12:07 AM   Subscribe

Bug: old threads have the poster username linking to the thread with the same number as their usernumber. Example (working). Example (nonworking). Only in the post; the username links in comments are fine.

Yeah, it's an old bug that I fixed, but there are a few thousand old threads saved with the bad old code. I don't really have the heart to wipe out 35k flat files and regenerate them all to fix it, figuring when I get the redesign in place, I'll have to do it anyway.

grep, Matt, grep! *sigh* ;-)

I know it doesn't affect much.
