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:

    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.
