Pretty sure there's never been an option to 'merge posts'.
I've got an old test installation of 3.0.x and it's not in that either.
My bad, you're right Kevin. Soon after I posted this I remember how it was back in 2011 when I was a staff member on GHF
, which still use phpBB 3.0.x (probably the latest version).
Shortly after I join staff I was told to manually edit a post and copy the content then edit the post I wanted to merge
with and add the copied content. Doing that is both tedious and unnecessary IMO, especially when I know what other forum software does e.g IPS (Local Moderator aka LM), XenForo (tested a demo over 5 years ago), vBulletin (former LM and moderator
I know what mod tools I could use during my time as a moderator on TWC and below I listed a few, which I think phpBB should have by now.
Merge Posts (merging posts without manually editing both posts)
Delete Post as Spam (that mean deleting all posts a spammer have posted before banning a spammer)
Reports will auto post a thread in the staff room there moderation discuss the report before making a decision
Something like that and I have probably miss a thing or two.
Merging pone post with another would not make sense.
Why do you think it doesn't make sense? Can you elaborate that please?
