Title: move post to a different topic
Post by: test1.0 on March 22, 2012, 02:16:43 PM
this has probs been asked time again but can i move a single post to a different topic if someone posts in the wrong existing post?

instead of deleting it and asking them to post it again but in the right section :-\

thanks

I think you would have to "Split topic", selecting the post you want to move, then once split, use "Merge topic" to put the post where you want it.

That's how I've been doing it anyway :)

Thanks Fossil, I've just installed that on your advice, but the board select dropdown only appears when posting a new topic, not when modifying an existing post.  Am I missing something?

No you don't,it will not work on replies,only on topic creation,as it selects the board not the topic
