[Solved] Setting topic to [Solved] breaks link

Commit https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/openwrt.git;a=commit;h=8514b6b42c17d7cf887fc826596534698e89e3f8 links to a topic in the forum. After I have changed the topic to include [Solved] the link in the commit is no longer working.
Is there any way to change the topic without changing the URL to the topic?
Or else I think I'll remove '[Solved]' to restore the link...

Instead, mark the topic as solved rather than changing the name. The forum has a function for this.
This will retain the link.

For some reason I can't make this as the solution though... Can I just not tag my own reply ?

Sorry I didn't mention in the first post that I followed this how-to: How to mark a topic as [Solved]
I'll stick to the build-in function only.
Maybe you have to be the opener of the topic to mark a reply as the solution?

I think adding [Solved] to the title is a way to assist the moderators with identifying solved topics so that they can manually close them if required (and probably be of some help to users who are looking for solutions), but the real effect is made by making a reply as a solution.

You can mark your own reply as a solution to your topic but not to others', unless you are a regular or a moderator (or more).

Its not your fault. The patch submitter should've used a link that includes the topic ID, means https://forum.openwrt.org/t/wireless-fails-on-snapshot-r12900-kernel-5-4-on-c2600-ipq806x/60155 instead of https://forum.openwrt.org/t/wireless-fails-on-snapshot-r12900-kernel-5-4-on-c2600-ipq806x.

Once the topic ID is included, you can also arbitrarily shorten the name part, e.g.
or even

I suppose @cotequeiroz didn't know that the ID-less links are not permanent.
