I would like to invoke my mod powers to move a post into another topic, but I find myself flummoxed by the description given in the moderator control panel about how to do such a thing. Any advice on how to do this?

I can write up a brief How To in the morning when I'm not using an iPad.

Sorry; a little later than "morning"...

1. It is much easier to move a post to a new thread if you know the Topic Identification Number (TIN) to which you want to move the post. To that end, before you go into the Moderator Control Panel, first open the desired destination thread. In the address bar, the last part of the web address for that thread is the TIN.

e.g. The TIN of the "Moving a post" thread is 1272...

Code:
http://www.unseenservant.us/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1272


2. Armed with that information, now navigate to the thread containing the post you want to move.
3. Open the Moderator Control Panel.
4. In the field under the Move Posts section, type the destination TIN.
5. Scroll down to the post you want to move.
6. Select the check box on the right side of the post you want to move.
7. In the drop-down box located at the bottom of the thread, select Move Posts.
8. Click the Submit button.
9. ???
10. Profit.

Hi All,

I understand one can move a post, but I was wondering if it is possible to copy a post, or indeed a whole Topic's full of posts, from a private sub-forum into the main public forum in which the private forum resides under? In some easier way than cutting/pasting a post and changing the poster to the one who wrote the original.

I'm not sure if "Splitting" a topic means this. I tried to split a post but got confused because it said topic, so I didn't do it.

Thank you.

There is a specific function for moving a post. I can do it, but not even a Moderator can see private topics unless they have permission given by the site admin or the DM controlling the topic. So I can't copy the topic if I can't see it.

Site Admin should be able to do it, as well.

I will have to look into this. Yes, moving is straightforward. Not sure about copying. Splitting is definitely not what you want. PM me links to the thread(s) you want to copy.
** EDIT ** yes, it looks like I can copy threads.

I have a thread that is 14 pages long, but I want to create a new thread and move all posts from the middle of the sixth page in my current thread into the new thread.

I'm wondering if you can move multiple pages worth of posts at the same time?

If I select half of the posts from page 6, then move to the next page and select all posts from it (and repeat until I'm at my current last page), will only the most recent checked posts (e.g. page 14) be moved, or will the system remember all previously selected posts (pages 6-13) and move them as well?


I'm about to test it and find out. :D

Actually, I just noticed the "Posts per page (Set to 0 to view all posts.)" option. That is what I would want to do first. Set that to 0, press Enter to refresh the page, and that changes the number of posts per game from 20 (the default) to 273 (the total number of posts in the thread).

From that view, I can select everything I want at the same time.

There's also a split thread option I believe. Gotta check that out...

Yep there's a "split selected posts" option as well as a "split topic from selected post onwards" option. If I'm guessing what you want to do correctly.

Thanks, Ron.

I'm guessing either would have been easier than what I did, but I was able to accomplish what I wanted without screwing anything up (except potentially confuse my players), so I'll still consider it a win. ;)
