Moving Posts to other Forums

Post by chrisjchrisj » Tue May 17, 2005 4:56 pm

Besides cutting and pasting, is there a way to move a Post from one Forum to another?

Thanks.

at the bottom of the screen you should see a link saying "you can moderate this forum".
press it, and a whole new world of possibilities will open before your amazed eyes.

oh ok thats quite easy...Open the thread you want to move then scroll to the bottom underneath "Reply" you will see many options that only Mods and Admins have...split, move, lock....of course, click move and then it will show you a new page and ask what forum. Uncheck the shadow thing unless you want people to know you moved it and then submit and all done.

For multiple threads you want moved do the same thing and you will see rows of text on the right telling you what you can do. At the bottom there is a link to the Moderator's Control Panel...click it and you will see that you can move many threads at a time.

It will look something like this... Image

If you are wanting to split the posts then...

Can't see it

Post by chrisjchrisj » Tue May 17, 2005 6:59 pm

At the bottom of my screen I see only:

You can post new topics in this forum
You can reply to topics in this forum
You can edit your posts in this forum
You can delete your posts in this forum
You can vote in polls in this forum

"You can Moderate this Forum" is not there.

Additionally, under Post Reply, I only have:

"Page 1 of 1"

Can someone tell me why? And help me remedy this? Thanks.

if you don't see "you can moderate this forum", then you cant...
i assumed that you are the admin of your board, in which case you are by default a moderator of all the forums.
if you are not, and you are meant to be, you need to fix it.
if you are not meant to be, then you just cant move a post to another forum.
