How to move a users post..

Discussion in 'XenForo Questions and Support' started by Andrew Callander, Jul 17, 2011.

  1. Okay so I have a forum that goes like this:


    Inside the Request Residency users are posting there own request threads. I want to take what they post and put them inside a "Stickie" thread I've made so that everyone's request goes into that one. How do I move it and make it look like the user posted it inside the proper thread and also how can I lock the parent (Request Residency) section so that people can't post threads inside of it.

    You can merge threads by selecting the check boxes in the thread list. A menu will pop up with the option to merge the selected threads:

    Then you can edit the node permissions to restrict posting new threads. You can still allow people to reply to threads if you wish:

    Admin CP -> Users -> Node Permissions -> [click a forum] -> [click a group]

    The merge will combine the posts from multiple threads into one thread.
