Splitting posts off a topic

Moderators also have the ability to split posts from a topic. This can be useful if certain discussions have spawned a new idea worthy of its own thread, thus needing to be split from the original topic. Splitting posts involves moving individual posts from an existing topic to a new topic. You may do this by using the Quick MOD Tools area beneath the topic you want to split or from the Moderator Control Panel within the topic.

While splitting, you may choose a title for the new topic, a different forum for the new topic, and also a different icon. You may also override the default board settings for the amount of posts to be displayed per page. The Splitting from the selected post option will split all posts from the checked post, to the last post. The Splitting selected posts option will only split the current selected posts.
