How to Merge 2 Topics or Move Posts?
« on: October 28, 2007, 01:23:39 pm »
Forum Url: http://DHC.smfforfree.com
I tried doing a search but could not find an answer.

If someone posts off topic in a thread & I want to move that one post to the proper thread how can I do that?

I know how to split the post off & put it in a new topic but I do not see any way to actually merge the new topic with a current topic.

Thanks  :D

If you look just slightly down the page or just above the quick reply box here, you will see a tab that states "merge topics".  That should walk you through the process.  You might want to make a couple of junk topics to practice on before you move the real one.

For this part of your question here is some help from a recent post by craSy: Crazy Sybul

What about splitting the post out of the topic(into it's own topic)

Then merging that new topic with the post with the target topic?

then for the second part of your question Laundry Lady's answer will help you out  ;)

I hope that picture helps. 

You can move or split a topic. I don't believe you can move a single post, all you can do is remove it.

Just look in the same place on your forum for the tab.

It is the ONLY way you can do what you wanted to do in your first question in this thread.
You should know how to do the merge thing now, and where the merge button is so you can do the second part of what he said..
