Question Can't merge poll topics
That's the topic here:
When I clicked "Moderate topic" and tried to merge it with this topic...
The outcome was that I couldn't find it! There is a drop-down list with 30 suggestions and I can't understand why.
My "Chat" forum has 867 topics!!
So why should I choose ONLY one out of those 30 topics from the drop-down menu? I don't want to. I might want to use any from these 867 topics and that's what must happen now. There should be a system where I could click "merge topic" and a screen of the subforum would appear, where all topics would have the option "Merge here". That's one of the very basic moderation tools which exist in every forum component.
1)Are you going to fix that in the future?
2)How am I supposed to merge my topics now?
I have entered the manual ID option but it seems that there is a BUG!
Look at the video!
Topics to be merged:
I need immediate reply. This issue is for weeks now!
Although it was not easy to clearly see what you were entering in your video, it looks like you went to the topic www.gameworld.gr/forum/84-versus/61569-n...-ta-noikiazeis#61575 and clicked the MODERATE button—which should have worked (although I would have used the MODERATE TOPIC button). The next screen would have looked something like how I pictured in the topic How to merge a post with another topic - not all topics are listed in the target category , something like:
... and that is where you should have entered "61569" in the Target Topic textbox.
The problem is that you have two topics that have polls in them. You cannot merge topics that have polls in them. A topic can only have one poll; you cannot run two polls in a single topic. I think this explains why you cannot merge those two topics.
I don't think this is a bug. I think it's just not possible in the current design of Kunena.
There are other ways that you could possibly manually merge the two topics by manipulating the data in the database tables but this would be risky and you could make your forum unusable if you get it wrong. I would not recommend that you try to merge these two topics by changing the data in the database but it all depends on how important it is to merge these two topics.
Even though I do not speak Greek, looking at the dates when your two topics were created (September 2009) I wonder how important it really is to fix this up 5 years later?
In summary, you cannot merge two topics if they have polls.
Does this now resolve your problem?
There are many issues here:
1)First of all There should be options "Move topic" , "Split topic" , "Merge topic" etc. I tried to move the topic in an other forum and FORGOT to click that box "Move the topic and all the 21 replies". This resulted in splitting only the first topic! What should I do now? Hit my head on the wall for that mistake? ALL forum components in the world have buttons which include these commands: Move, Split, Merge. Why does Kunena doesn't? We might want to split 4 posts , the 1st, 5th, 8th and 11th. WHat should we have to do in this case? Split them one by one? There should be a "Split" option and we should use checkboxes to split posts!
2)When we split a topic with a poll, there is also a rule in every forum component. ONLY the 1st post keeps the poll! There absolutelly NOreason to keep the poll in the other topics!
3)So with this situation now, how am I supposed to remove the poll from one topic so that I can merge it with the other? There should be an option to remove that poll without coding anyway!
Also THERE IS bug here because when I click the "Moderate" button in the 1st post of the Poll topic, there is NO option "Split this and all the 5 replies" as it should!
What Kunena does is that it splits the 1st post of the topic, creates 2 polls and then I can't merge those topics!!!
1st of all fix that bug and allow us to delete polls finally!
