    it seems there is a bug when a moderator is using the wrong URL (Redirect Thread URL)... which could result in severe consequences because it lost the post.

    Please watch the video


    The URL for the Field "Existing Thread Thread URL:" MUST be a redirectet URL bevor redirect ;)

    the Thread
    redirect to

    In the "Existing Thread Thread URL:" insert -> https://xenforo.com/community/threa...um-members-based-on-their-uk-location.113332/

    I'm not able to reproduce this. In fact, I get an error letting me know the URL was invalid:

    Gotcha. I may have misunderstood. I'll try again on my laptop at college.

    I can confirm this, though I'd guess it's some sort of design limitation as there really should be no reason to move posts into a redirect, but rather the new destination thread.

    I don't think there's a design limitation here. It should be a rather simple fix by making sure the target thread doesn't have discussion_type = 'redirect'.

    I've fixed this now, thanks. You won't be able to move/copy into a redirect.
