Merge Forums?

Post by chicagotransam » Tue Oct 23, 2007 11:19 pm

I looked around and all I could find was a bunch of people wanting to merge 2.0 with 3.0 or from one site to another etc.

Is there a simple way to merge forum sections? For instance; under the category "Current Events" I have both News and Politics. I would like to just make a "News/Politics" forum and put them together.

One way to do it would be to change the name of the News forum to News/Politics, then in the ACP > Forum Management delete Politics, and in the "Move all contents" field choose "News/Politics". So all the posts would be safely moved :)
