I have kind of a situation here. In short, I had to move a reply that was made to a post in topic A, to another topic B. Then for various reasons it made sense to remove the post that was replied to, which had the URL of /t/14/18.
In topic B, the reply that I moved has an auto-generated link to the replied-to post (that no longer exists), and that link has the original URL of /t/14/18. If I hit that link or go to that URL I’m redirected to what seems to be the closest active post in topic A that has an ID as close as possible to the original replied-to ID 18. Before I removed a second post I was redirected to /t/14/17, but after removing that one I am not redirected to /t/14/19 instead.
This is where my problem happens - that post /t/14/19 makes no sense for the reply in topic B, and I would like to edit the link in that reply so it instead points to e.g. /t/14/16. But I can’t find a way to edit the link, as it’s an auto-generated one, presumably stored somewhere in the system.
Is there a way to fix this? Or if not, can I at least delete the auto-generated link so I can manually add a reference at the top of the reply post in topic B?
