Changing categories to tags?


Well-known member
I'd like to make more use of XF tags, by taking some of the smaller subboards and giving all threads in that board a specific tag - then move them into a larger board and delete the smaller, empty category.

For example, on my forums there are a number of subboards for individual authors - but I would now like to simply tag each thread in a particular author's subboard with that authors name.

I can then move those discussions into a larger category, and get rid of the smaller and now empty smaller boards.

I appreciate that I'd probably have to run something in phpmyadmin - but does anyone have any suggestions on how to do it?
