Merging threads is nightmare especially in two different forums

    Hello Guys,

    I don't know if it is bug but my all moderators are facing this issue and they are finding hard to merge threads when threads are in two different forums ...

    Or even if lets say one thread is at first page and then second thread I don't even know at which page...

    Well I tried doing below:-

    Opened both the threads which are in two different forums and then clicked >> Thread Tools>> Select for thread moderation.

    Then open any forum and checked "Selected Threads" count in red to be "Selected Threads: 1" instead of 2... So had to again go back to see which thread is checked and which not... but opening thread and clicking thread tools shows that thread is selected for thread moderation but actually count is still 1 if we see in forum view...

    I'm able to reproduce this as many times as u say... Even I can write in more detail but I want to know how you guys merge the threads...

    I will give u an example as you guys are moderator of xenforo forum... Please tell me how easy is to merge below two threads:-

    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/users-online-how-long-users-appear-for.5499/

    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/user-online.49355

    Or tell me how will you proceed to merge above two threads?

    If you already have both threads open then you need to refresh the second page before selecting the checkbox, otherwise the first one is cleared.

    So check the first thread and click onto another page, then refresh the second tab, select it and merge.
