Solved How can I move posts from one topic to another?

Post by bassie999 on January 10th 2011, 11:23 am

Some users have posted in the wrong topics, and as an admin / moderator I want to correct that for them by moving their posts to the correct topic. How can I do this?

If I moderate a topic, I can split posts and move them to a new topic, but not to an already existing topic. Or am I missing something?

Thanks for your help.

Since you split them, then you will need to merge it.

That doesn't work: I can only move the whole topic to another forum, delete the whole topic or split posts in a topic to a new topic.

I cannot merge two topics, or move a post from one topic to another existing topic.

Also, I cannot move a post to a new topic with the same name as an existing topic, as that only results in two topics with the same name.

Any other suggestions?

Don't think you understand. You need to split the post into a topic. Once you do that, you will then merge the topic into another topic. This is the only way.

If I moderate a topic, I can do the following:

I click on the topic, and than on
you can moderate this forum

Than I get a form, listing the posts in the topic. On top of the form, I get this:
Using the form below you can split a topic in two, either by selecting the posts individually or by splitting from a selected post

I can split 1 or more posts into a new topic; I cannot put the posts in another existing topic.

OK, so I select 1 or more posts and split them into a new topic, in the same forum. The new topic has a new name, or the same name as an existing topic; both work. But than I have 2 seperate topics.

I'm looking at the topics in the forum, and click on
you can moderate this forum

I than have 4 options. I can (1) move, (2) delete, (3) lock or (4) unlock a topic. That is all.

I do not know how I can merge two topics into 1 topic.

I also tried to edit the posts themselves, but once the post is in a topic, I cannot get it anywhere else, except by splitting the post into a new topic.

How can I merge two topics?

You should have that option of merge. If not go to Quick mod tools: and find merge. It will ask you select a topic. Click that and then go to the section // find the topic click it save and click save again.

I could not find the quick mod tools, but after browsing these forums a little more (searching for quick mod tools) I found some hints as how to deactivate these tools.

I logged of as admin, and logged in with my founder account again, so that I could have a look at the templates for the forum. They seemed OK (all was on default settings), and it included the quick mod tools as well.

Going back to the forum as founder, and doing some more clicking on the forum, I now saw the quick mod tool drop down menu. And yes, there is was: Merge topics !

So I clicked that, and merged the topics.

Thank you for the support and patience. Topic can be closed.

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
