    Is there a way to merge two forums in a category together or to move all topics from one to the other?

    Is there a way of mass moving posts from one forum to another?
    Run the following query:
    Code:
    UPDATE xf_thread SET node_id = y WHERE node_id = x;
    Replace x with the node ID of the existing forum and y with the node ID of the new forum. Note that the forum cache and search index should be rebuilt in the ACP -> Tools -> Rebuild Caches.

    Sorry, noob question: How do you find the node ID for a given forum?

    Is ACP mass move likely to be a feature sometime?

    Is this still the best way to merge 2 forums?

    Use the Batch Update Threads feature in the ACP to move all threads from one forum to another.
