    Worked flawlessly! Now if a staff member needs to have a post right after the OP, They can simply change the date of their post to a few minutes after the thread was created, and it will move up to under the first post!

    Excellent! Without a good knowledge about how to use Xenforo and their add-ons, I could easily make this one working flawlessly. Thanks you!

    Great Add-on, A must have, it’s a great little tool which comes in handy when you want to add a post and want it to be placed above or below a post that already exists. How convenient is that! What can I say, Andy you sure do make my life a lot easier, your attention to detail is impressive. Keep up the great work! Without some of your add-on’s our forum would not be as active as it has become. Nor would it be such a cool forum to belong. Thanks for the countless hrs of hard work you have put into all your add-on’s.

    I just needed this feature for the first time today to change the date/time of a post I moved so it made sense of order in the thread it was moved to and thank God Andy had an addon to let me do it! Thanks mate!

    There are times when two users are drafting a post and end up being submitted almost simultaneously. However, in the aftermath sometimes the thread reads better if you can re-arrange the order of several posts. This add-on makes that so simple to do and offhand, I don't know how else to even accomplish such. Very handy!

    Excellent. I needed a way to add helpful information to old threads that get hit by a lot of Google traffic. I was able to post, then use this to backdate it so it doesn't show up in the new posts.
