Message
In order to make manually typing forum URLs faster, the forum software now recognises "?id=xxx" where xxx is a thread number, instead of "?bbsubject_id=xxx".


Also, the "bbshowpost.php" part is optional (and always has been), however the code that displays lists (eg. recent posts) now omits it. For example, this thread can be accessed now as:

http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/?id=7287

The old method (which still works) was:

http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/bbshowpost.php?bbsubject_id=7287

Notice the "?" is required before the "id=" as it distinguishes a filename from the arguments to that page.
