Moving a category from one forum to another

Post by rgmt22 »

Is it possible to move a category which has already been set up and posted to in one forum to a different forum and keep all the posts intact?

Could you clarify what you mean by "category"? Are you trying to move a topic from one forum to another at the same site, or are you trying to move your forum to a different host/server?

Hi,

I think you are confusing "Catagories" with "Forums"...

Catagories have Fprums within them. Forum have topics and topic posts.

You can move a Forum from one Catagory to another by using the "Move" when accessed from the Admin CP -> Forum Admin -> Management.

Hoipe this helps,

Sorry but I did not close the thread with my reply - I still need to know if I can move a topic from one forum to another and keep the original posts in that topic?

Thanks in advance,

Richard
