Pre-upgrade links to old posts don't work?

Links to individual posts created by the old platform no longer work -- they go to the first post of the topic. For example, the old link to Rikk Flohr's FAQ about why topics get merged is:

 

https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/making_auto_import_simpler?topic-reply-list[settings][filter_by]=all&topic-reply-list[settings][reply_id]=19281005#reply_19281005

 

The new permalink is:

 

https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/lightroom-classic/lightroom-auto-import-to-folders-organized-by-date/5f5f44f14b561a3d422ab0ba?commentId=5f5f48984b561a3d422bdf45

 

Any chance the old format links could be made to work? Other forums (e.g. the Adobe Community forums and Lightroom Queen forums) have hundreds of links to individual posts in this forum that will be much less useful.

It looks like the primary URL works https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/making_auto_import_simpler but the deep linking code doesn't. Let me see what can be done.

URLs in posts no longer get turned into clickable links, e.g. 

 

https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/lightroom-classic/lightroom-auto-import-to-folders-organized-by-date/5f5f44f14b561a3d422ab0ba?commentId=5f5f48984b561a3d422bdf45

 

You've got to click the chain button, something many users aren't likely to do, so it will be a mild inconvenience to copy and paste the URL to follow it.

At some point in the past month, pasting URLs into a post or reply now automatically get turned clickable:  

 

https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/lightroom-classic/lightroom-auto-import-to-folders-organized-by-date/5f5f44f14b561a3d422ab0ba?commentId=5f5f48984b561a3d422bdf45

 

Yay! (This was a separate issue from the original post, but no matter.)
