Using Short-URL with redirect?

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Just thought about if it would be possible to use a different Domain (lets say as a short domain for and attach the thread id to have a short url for forum threads in an vanilla forum.

Example: should automatically redirect to the thread with the thread id 37223.

That should be possible without bigger modifications, right? Should even be possible with a simple .htaccess or do we need to know the thread title to redirect?

Showing this short url below or above a thread should be possible with some small template modifications?

(sorry if that all sounds stupid but i'm really new to vanilla forums and i'm still theoretical so far.)
