Discussion Thread Moderation: Split/Move Comments to Correct Forum

edited July 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Greetings all,

I'm just wondering if perhaps I am overlooking something... I need to split/move random comments to a correct forum... much like the Moderator Panel type functionality of phpbb, I guess.

Scenario: Member1 posts an introduction in an Introduce-Yourself type forum. Because the default view in Vanilla is Discussions not Categories, Members 2-999million (grrrr!) are posting their personal introductions as comments under Member 1's thread, thereby completely hijacking any hope of a real discussion happening for Member 1. (counseling group - comprehendable discussions are vital)

So, in this scenario, Each ill-placed comment needs to be 1) split off Member 1's discussion to now become a Discussion Topic and 2) moved to the appropriate category, if neccessary.

Is there something I am overlooking in the administration area? Or does this not yet exist? Any insight / feedback would be MOST appreciated! I think I've searched until my eyes ache, and finally decided I should ask...

Thanks so much, in advance,
Dr. W

    cannot do this, either by default or with any extensions, afaik.

    most likely you're going to be stuck hiding the out of place comments, and having users create new threads

    Oh boy...

    Thanks for the info.! Not what I wanted to find out, of course (lol) but I sure appreciate the quick response :)
    Surely, there's some sort of work-around... (shooting the bat-signal out of the office window)

    Hi drweyant,

    I just found this add-on, I hope you can find it useful: ModTools

    I haven't installed it yet, but I hope it will work.
