We regularly merge topics because they are doubles or similair.
However, we just noticed that when doing so, the URL of the old topic gives a 404 if you use it….
This became clear when doing so and checking the old URL which was still being found in Google.
Is this a bug where the move action on the last reply in a topic (the real first topic post) does not trigger a redirect on the old url?
So far when changing titles, the URL changes, but the old URL will get a redirect.
This should also be for moving the last post of a topic to another topic right?
Right now this means you can't merge two topics completely. Therefore I would say this is a pretty ugly bug.
PS, in this topic it has been previously addressed by Darran, but the 30 seconds don’t apply here… This is still going on after a couple of hours.
