    Oh no! The return of the redirects!

    On the old forums, I had created a forum thread on the original forums, describing how to move a thread properly, without an annoying redirect to the Archives, a place that the normal staff can't see. Chicka2b2b even stickied it! o: I thought I would create a thread showing the new staff how to move threads... and not fail. Ok, so here we go!

    What is a redirect? A redirect is a default XenForo capability that is activated when someone moves a thread. In place of the original thread, a "redirect" arrow is visible, and will take users to where the thread is now.

    The problems: 90% of forum thread movements are to the archive, or Payne's Closet, as we call it. To avoid players clicking on these unnecessary and obsolete arrows that will lead them to a permission error, here is a basic tutorial I have written.
    HOW TO MOVE THREADS AND NOT FAIL
    by DancingCactus


    Step 1:

    Select the thread(s) that you would like moved through the multiple thread selector like this...

    Step 2:

    Select the "Move Threads" option on the drop down menu.

    Step 3:

    BE SURE to deselect the redirect option and click the one circled by a red line.

    Select the forum you would like the thread to go, add an applicable prefix if necessary, and voila!

    Step 4:

    Bask in your glory of being able to move a thread properly.
