Take action on search results?

    Unless I'm missing something, it appears that you can't take admin-type action on the results of a search - neither post nor topic searches. For example, I'd like to search for all topics with a certain word in their title, then select several of those and move them at once to another forum. The only way you can do that now appears to be to visit each topic after the search is done and move that topic - basically one at a time.

    Is there a feature I might be missing somewhere for this, or is there an add-on that anyone can suggest for doing this sort of thing?

    Inline moderation works in this "recent threads" listing:


    But not in search results. You can run a query to mass move threads by thread title, but that doesn't allow you to pick and choose from matching results. There is no feature like what you want.

    Thanks, Jake. Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything. I know about the SQL-level approach, and that might be my next move if I need to do that. I'll add that to a "frequently-needed technical tips" list that I'll be building up soon... :)
