The "Move Reply to other Topic" will be available in 1.3.2 or 1.3.3 within this month. But I have no information abut "Topic Merge", it's not in top of our to-do list.

I do not see this important feature in wpforo 1.4.x. Can you please advise if it's coming?

I think the 1.4.0, 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 has many important features and most of those had been requested by wpForo users. And yes, not all features can be important for all.

The ability to move posts to another topic is a basic fundamental of a good forum and a must if one wishes to re-configure forums.

 

WP-foro is excellent in many ways but sadly it does lack some very basic features.

I'm not knocking the team as I'm sure these features will arrive eventually, it's just a waiting game.

At the moment you can do that using these steps:

1. Find the target Topic ID ( X )

 

2. Find the Post ID ( Y ) of the post you'd like to move.

 

3. Install a SQl executor plugin, for example SQL Executioner

 

4. Navigate to Dashboard > Tools > SQL Executioner and run this SQL (change the X and Y values with Topic and Post IDs):

UPDATE $wpforo_posts SET topicid = X WHERE postid = Y

 

5. Navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Dashboard admin page and click on [Delete all caches] button.

Hi, are there any updates for this issue? I have the latest version of WPforo (1.4.7) installed, the 'move post' functionality doesn't seem to be present.

Thanks

David
