Pro Admin Topic does not split correctly

Post by Kami-sama on September 28th 2015, 8:03 pm

Hello!

I've been trying to split a topic. When I select my messages and click on the second button (I am not sure on it's exact translation to English) the first message of the topic stays in it and all other ones (checked and unchecked) go to a new topic. Clicking on the first given button for splitting everything is done correctly.

Thank you for reply in advance!
My forum version phpBB2.

Hello,

If I understand your issue correctly, your problem is that the first message stays and everything else is split? Is that not what you were trying to do? The reason for this may be that you can't split the intial topic message.

Do I understand it correctly? If not please elborate further what you mean.

Hello!

No that is not my problem Smile
I want to select some messages and get everything else (unselected messages) to the new topic.
(as I understand, that's how second button function works. First button places all selected messages to a new topic as I understand) This is what the second button should do:

For splitting from selected posts you need to make a new topic title and select the forum you want to move the unselected posts too. You can then check the boxes of all the posts you want to KEEP as part of the topic you are splitting, and leave the posts you want to make a new topic with unchecked. Click 'split from selected posts' button and it will show you the new title and the forum you have chosen for the new topic and ask you to confirm.

If you want to remove posts from a topic, you want to press the button on the left side.

Okey, I will try to explain ;D

Sometimes it is easier to select only the UNwanted messages. In that case there is the first button. But, sometimes it is best to select WANTED messages, for that there is the second button. But for some reason, the second button doesn't work like it should be. So there's the problem Smile

I don't quite understand what you? If you don't check a message, it will not be split. Otherwise messages that you didn't want to be split by accident.

Okey, I will try to explain Smile

There is a topic with such messages for example:
-First message
-1
-2
-x
-3
-x
-x ... and so on.

I want to move all messages with "x" to another topic.
I have two options:
1) select the messages with "x" and click on 1st button
2) select only messages that I need (1,2,3) and click on 2nd button

Am I right? Smile

You would select the first button.

Are you trying to move the posts to a topic that is already created? If yes, then you are merging topics.

No, I am not trying to merge. I know the difference between merge and split.
Read again the description in the tutorial about the function of the second button.
That is what I want and it is not working.
It seams that the topic is just being split from the first checked message.

Yes. That is what I want to do as I mentioned before.
I am selecting the messages that I want to keep, yet they are still moved to a new topic.

Are not the posts being moved to the new topic that is created? When you complete the process, you are returned to the topic that you was splitting.

The post are moved, but not the UNSELECTED ones, how it should have been.

For example:
-1 first post
-2 unselected
-3 selected
-4 unselected...

Then in the original topic would be left 1 and 2. In the new topic everything after the first selected post: 3, 4, 5 ,6 .... I hope this illustrates my problem.

Did you give the new topic a title and select the forum where it will be?

Of course. I think otherwise the action would not be allowed at all.

Hello

Could you please make a screenshot of every step you are making to split your message? I made many tests on a forum and everything is working fine Smile

Just to be sure you're talking about the same thing Wink

Then, can you create some "fake" topics on your forum, so that we can test the split option. I guess your forum is this one: your forum

Thanks for your help Hello

Here are the screen shots:

Step 1
I write the name for new topic: New Topic
I choose a forum for it. Then I select all messages with green select text.
Afterwards I click on the button marked with red X. It should move all the unselected messages to the New Topic.


Step 2
Notification about successfully split topic.


Step 3
This is how original and new topic look like:

Hello

I made some tests on your forum and it perfectly works:
- Original topic with message 1.2.3.4 http://hogas.huhohi.com/t2997-forumotion-test-split-topic-n1 I moved the message n2 & 4
- Final message with the message 2 & 4 http://hogas.huhohi.com/t2999-test-spilt (1 & 3 are on the first message)

I think you clicked on the second button. You have to use this one:

Yes, I am aware that the first button function works perfectly as I noted in the very first post here. But what about the second one? Shouldn't it move the unselected messages?
