Batch Update Threads - Remove Thread Prefix

    I recently had to swap the location of threads between two forums, for this, I used the Batch Update Threads tool.

    I applied a new prefix to denote which ones would be moved, and which ones would remain.

    After all of this, I expected to be able to remove the thread prefix as a mass action, but this does not seem possible.

    The suggestion is to be able to remove thread prefixes from the found threads. I could do this using Inline Moderation, but it feels as though the option was left-out from the actions page (it was available in the search page).

    Another reason to support this is, to my knowledge, the Inline Moderation tools are not designed to support changes to large numbers of threads. The "Batch..." tools are.

    I've just run into the exact same problem myself and had to do it manually via MySQL

    Set Prefix: (None)

    That should accomplish what you want.

    'None' doesn't exist. The image in the first post is a representation.

    You can search for threads with no prefixes, but you can't remove prefixes from matched threads.
