Forums deprecation

URL patterns

CurseForge is organized into 'projects'. Each project has a video game and a project type attached; this is how the URL slug is determined. For example, https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/botania[IAWcite.todayMemWeb] has components for the video game (Minecraft) and the type (mc-mod). This makes guessing URLs extremely difficult.

However, there is a projects endpoint which is a number incrementing from 1 to infinity; as such, these URLs can be guessed very easily. This is the internal identifier, and redirects to the pretty URL slug. (This number is used in various other places in the API.) For example, https://curseforge.com/projects/225643[IAWcite.todayMemWeb] redierects to https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/botania[IAWcite.todayMemWeb].
