    Hey there! So, I have one forum that I would like to merge with another, like so:
    Is it possible for me to simply merge the two together with the click of a button? Or would I have to manually move all the topics...?

    You can move all the threads using this query:
    UPDATE xf_thread
    SET node_id = y
    WHERE node_id = x
    Where x is the current node ID and y is the new node ID.

    And this would be an SQL query?

    Yes. You can run queries using phpmyadmin which most web hosts install for you.

    Problem: I merged the forums, but it took off my post count for that forum, and even though they successfully merged, the forum post total and that board's post total won't re-count....problem?

    Never mind, fixed with a simple cache rebuild and re-running the cron job
