XF 1.1 Is there any way to mass move threads without sql queries?

You only have a few options.

Run that query.
Upgrade to 1.2 or later so you can use the Batch Update Threads function: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/bulk-thread-management.51302/
Move them all manually from the front end.
Thanks brogan, unfortunately none of those are an option for me. I installed this add-on, however, it requires you specify a string and then moves all threads that contain that string in the thread title. Can you think of a string that would essentially specify all threads? I know this is a third party add-on, but I figure if anyone can think of it, it'll be you (the developer hasn't been active since June so I can't ask him).

You can try asking in the add-on thread as I don't use it.
There may be a wildcard function.

Is there any particular reason you don't want to upgrade to a later version of XenForo?
Which site is this actually for?

I'm in the process of developing an entirely new site on xF1.4 rather than updating the existing one due to a variety of issues (we haven't purchased a renewed license yet so it's behind a .htaccess password). However, there is a variety of custom code we've used to modify templates, add-ons, etc., to give the site the functionality we require so it's a long process and we're trying to streamline the existing forum in the meantime.
