    There is an option to move a post from an existing thread into a new thread.
    But I can't see the option to move it into an existing thread.
    Is this functionality missing? Because we need it.

    Currently you have to move the post to the forum as a new thread and then merge it with the other thread.

    I have moved this thread to suggestions, as it is a needed feature.

    It just seems odd this would be over looked... I realize its Beta but hopefully we see this in Beta 2...

    At the moment

    It would be nice if I could move single posts directly to an existing thread (without the merge).

    Am I missing this option somewhere?

    You can move posts into a new thread but not seemingly into an existing thread?

    It's a 2 step process.

    Move them to a new thread, then merge the threads.

    Why is "merge threads" not available from the thread tools dropdown within a thread?

    It's only available from the tools on the main list view, not within a thread.

    Yeah I realised that, was just wondering why as you'd expect it to be available from within the thread tools dropdown. Maybe move this to suggestions?

    Which is the suggestion?

    To be able to move posts from one thread directly to another?

    Or for the merge threads option to be available within the thread tools dropdown?

    Both I guess?

    It's a bit surprising that the basic functionality isn't available and the alternative is a 2-step process which seems a bit inelegant.

    Very much needed, I'd consider it a core function. From all my suggestions, this is definitely priority 1.

    Is this possible now?

    I created a new thread - and need an older thread merged into that but with the NEW first post and not the old ones first.

    I know this was a problem with vB - it would automatically choose the oldest post to be the first posts and merge the others in to fit with the dates ... But that's not what I need.

    Suggestions before I try and f** it all up? :)

    Nothing has changed.

    It's still a two step process to move posts from one thread to another and posts are still sorted on date order.

    i have 'liked' the OP as a vote indication, i have had to split off threads to there own also. after 15 plus years of running my board, i really would be lost without that feature to control conversations in an orderly fashion


    from here too, seem that there are two thread [similar in nature]about the same.

    This is a must have feature.
    Hope devs include this (y)

    Its alarming to see that a basic feature like 'moving posts' is in the 'suggestions' section for almost 2 years with no fix or even a response from the staff. This should be a standard feature no?
