You should see it at the bottom left side of the screen when you actually open go into a topic. It's right next to the icons that a plain unmodded phpbb2 board shows. A clean board has four icons there for deleting, moving, locking and splitting topics, and this mod adds a fifth icon for merging right next to those four. Can you at least see the other four icons? If you see them but you don't see this, perhaps you didn't make the changes this mod has you make to your live template? Are you using subSilver or another template?
abhishek1711 wrote:buddy u mean to say split post and merge mod also does what this mod does...so its better. why need this mod then
You are correct, you don't need both mods. The reason I have them both on my board is that if a moderator only wants to merge one full topic into another, this mod is simpler for him to use. But when he wants to split apart parts of a topic and move or copy them to their own topic or into a new topic, he can use that other mod.

The other mod allows you to do everything that this mod does so you don't need to do that, but if you're like me you may want to so that a simple merge is easier for your moderators to do.

you don't need it. It's only for messing around with packs for other languages.

Frankly, I'd leave them all in so that you don't have to figure out what you can exclude. That's what I did when I installed this a few years ago.

Even if you did absolutely nothing else, if you had made the change the mod asks you to make to viewtopic.php you would now see something to the right of those four icons that appear at the bottom left of viewtopic. If you see those four icons but do not see anyhing to the right of them, then you did not make that change to viewtopic.php. You may think you did, but in fact you did not. For example, you may have made the change on your local computer but not uploaded the changed filed to your server. Or maybe you uploaded that file to your server but not in the right place. Etc.

After installing this mod by hand (couldn't get it to show up in the EasyMod unprocessed list), I've got everything working except for the button at the bottom of the topic page! I've triple checked everything and can't figure it out.. anyone else having this problem?
