Fixed Move Post - in Redirected Thread - Post lost

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


EDIT:

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

the Thread
https://xenforo.com/community/threa...um-members-based-on-their-uk-location.113332/
redirect to
https://xenforo.com/community/threa...um-members-based-on-their-uk-location.113329/

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:

The existing thread could not be found or you do not have permission to merge into it.

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.
