    Moving posts to another thread is a two step process.

    First split the posts off to a new thread, then merge that new thread with the other.

    Select the threads for merging from the inline moderation or the Thread Tools dropdown - Select for Thread Moderation.

    That is for thread merging/moving, etc.

    As I explained above, you first need to split the posts off to a new thread.

    As Paul (Brogran) has stated, it is a two step process to move posts from one thread to another.
    The steps (as described) are:
    1. Split the posts you want to move. Yes, this creates a new thread.
    2. Merge the newly created thread into your destination thread.
    A direct thread to thread 'move' of posts is not possible.

    @Brogan , @King Kovifor, Don't you agree that this is a little bit complicated? Are there any plans to embody it in one step process further? Thanks.

    There is an open suggestion for it.

    I am new to xenforo so this might seem very basic, but I'm trying to move a post and step 1 is repeated multiple times in this thread as "Split the posts you want to move" but I do not see how to do this.

    While looking at the thread, it has four posts. I select Thread Tools and see these three options:
    Edit Thread
    Delete Thread
    Move Thread

    I do not see Split Thread anywhere.

    Also, when I select "Select for Thread Moderation" the box is checked (as implied in one of the posts in this thread), but I do not see any other options available.

    A search of the online manual of "Split" comes up empty. A search of the control panel on "Split" comes up empty.

    Select the posts and choose "Move Posts".

    Thanks for the response. I had overlooked that little checkbox next to the user name at the bottom of the post that allowed me to "select the posts" so I was even confused by your seven word response. However, I knew that there must be a way based on your response and found it. There are a lot of good options after selecting the posts. Thanks again.
