Merging forums?

Merging forums?
December 01, 2011 07:33PM
We currently have 6 forums in our Phorum installation and plan to reduce to only 3. We want to move all messages from those forums that are closing to one of those remaining. I looked for a function to merge 2 forums but could not find it. Is there any way to mass move messages from one forum to another?

Regards,
Laurenz

You could just change the forum_id of the posts in question directly in the database (*_messages table). Rebuild search and forum stats afterwards through the admin interface.

I just had to move a few million posts into a new forum and can confirm this method works well.
