How do I move a thread to a different topic?

If you have permission to edit your posts, you may move a thread or conversation that you inadvertently posted in the wrong topic to a different topic. A site administrator may move any thread to a different topic.

Go to Discussions.

Select Discussions from the Tool Menu in your site.

Choose the topic with the thread(s) to move.

Select the title of a topic to access the topic.

Note: Topics are indented underneath the forum where they are located.

Select the thread(s) to be moved.

Check the box(es) for the conversation(s) to move.

Note: Check boxes are only available for conversations you have permission to move.

Above the list of conversations, select Move Thread(s).

Select where to place the thread(s).

After selecting the Move Threads button, a pop-up window will open with options pertaining to where you will move the selected thread(s).  In the Move Threads window:

  1. You may optionally select the check box to Leave a reminder about the move in the old topic.  This will create a link in the old topic that takes you to a thread's new location.  It is not selected by default.
  2. You may filter topics by entering a topic's name in the By Name box or selecting a forum from the In Forum drop-down menu to find topics specific to that forum.
  3. Select the radio button corresponding to the topic where the conversation belongs.

Confirm moving the thread(s).

At the bottom of the Move Thread(s) window, select Move Thread(s) to Selected Topic to continue.

The Move Thread(s) window will close and you will be taken to the conversation's new topic.
