Sometimes people may post messages in the wrong discussion or thread. This might be because they have accidentally clicked on the wrong discussion or it might be because they have misunderstood what the discussion is about and their message would be more appropriate in another discussion.

Administrators and moderators can keep the discussions structured and relevant by moving incorrectly posted messages from one discussion to another, or to another thread in the same discussion.

  • Login to your website
  • Go to the thread with the message you wish to move.

To move a message to another thread in another discussion

There isn't currently an easy way to move messages to other discussions. However, if you need to do it:

  • Move the entire thread to the other discussion
  • Move the message to the appropriate thread of the other discussion
  • Move the entire thread back to its original discussion
