Fixed Move Post - in Redirected Thread - Post lost

Well-known member
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:

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.
