You mean by topic number? Just change the URL for this page: http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=17131.0

By changing the last number to the appropriate topic number, and you'll go straight there.

But I sense that you mean something else...  Do you mean using links with the old enumeration to find the current document with the same content? Do you have broken links somewhere? Or something else entirely?
