XF 2.2 How can I merge two categories?


New member
Hello there! :)
I wish to merge two (or more) forum categories (forum nodes) into one, and move all the content into that category as well. Is this possible? If it is, how can I do that? :) I currently only know how to manually move a post into a new category and I will have to move a few hundreds... 😅

I tried this and I stumbled upon the following error:

Oops! We ran into some problems.​

No items matched your filter.

I put a new title, tag, chose the Thread type, Forum (Include selected) - I includd two categories; Thread creator in user groups: Administrative, Registered and Moderating; State: Visible, Deleted, Moderated; Locked: Unlocked and Locked and Sticky: NOt Sticky and Sticky and pressed "Search". Apparently this can be used to search not to merge two categories and they found nothing according to my filter.

If you want to move all threads from one node to another, just leave all the criteria blank/default and only select the forum which has the threads in.

Then on the next page you will move them to the destination forum.
