except the topic split ui is supposed to let you select which posts go into the new split topic

Does the topic not give you the tick boxes and the option st the bottom to split them or was that broken in addition to the select posts UI being broken? Pretty sure this works correctly and does what the OP needs in 2.0.

It's not broken, even that works just fine, so I'm not sure what OP is talking about anymore

No it does not work fine.

it brings up a topic split screen that shouldn't be needed at all.
There is no way to choose name or placement of the new thread
there is no button to move posts
there is no button to copy posts

all of it should be doable directly from the postview

that's for starters in lacking functionality compared to Xen

So go back to XenForo already, you clearly were looking for justification to stay there, guess you found it.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

just because xenforo does it that way doesn't mean SMF has to do it the same way, besides once you split the posts into a new topic, you can change the topic's name and move it wherever you want.

we will have to agree to disagree then, since IMO, the move post function does not belong within the split post function - and I don't think that copy topics is a good idea anyway since that will result in lowering your SEO scores.... :P

(and, the first screen of the split post option DOES give you the option to change the post title of the split post)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

You DO NOT get that Screen if you use the checkbox approach .......

Because this one doesn't have that functionality (either) which was my point from the first place.

we miss the checkboxes on the posts and the related functions.

So your complaint is that software developed by 2-3 full time people has more features that you care about than software developed by 4-5 people occasionally in their spare time and you don’t want to pay for it, good to know.

No, it's customer feedback from an eval of SMF and what they saw as the biggest issues and weaknesses.   
What they want to pay for is their decision but they where serious enough about this to hire me on a 40 hour consulting engagement as technical support in the eval team.

In which case you definitely want to choose XenForo because in the event of major issues, they have thing like warranties available.

Well we can see who the winner in this whole thing is !

Is bleating on this forum billable hours?

Of course it is. Though I would have cost significantly less to tell you what the most appropriate forum product for a given situation is (and it isn’t always SMF)
