Forums such as linuxquestions use the thread title to form a "pretty" URL, such as:
That exact form would not work because request.args[1] is used for subscriptions, but something similar would be good.

Also if I try accessing a topic ID that does not exist or is not a number then I get an error because the controller uses:
topic_id = int(request.args[0])
topic = db([0]
How about redirecting to a "Topic not found" page.

All this applies to forums too.

I confirm this - if a bad URL is submitted then an error page is displayed,
with "Internal Error"
