Topic: Have viewtopic.php?pid=x redirect to viewtopic.php?id=y#x.

This would allow better search-engine indexing and consistency. (500 URIs won't point back to the same content.)

Re: Have viewtopic.php?pid=x redirect to viewtopic.php?id=y#x.

I've actually been meaning to ask what people would think about that idea.

Edit: ... because it can be annoying to edit a post (or post a new reply, etc.) and then be redirected to a page where the topic id is not readily available.

It would actually have to redirect to viewtopic.php?id=y&p=z#x

How so?

Re: Have viewtopic.php?pid=x redirect to viewtopic.php?id=y#x.

How is getting rid of the "pid" URLs better considering we would need the page parameter for the "id" URL anyway?

Edit: Err. Nevermind what I just said.

There's another issue though. viewtopic.php?pid=5#p5 is a permanent link. It will always point to the right post. viewtopic?id=3&p=2#p5 will not. It depends on the "posts per page" profile setting.
