    Note: Note: If the existing thread is already being used by another article, Keep Original Thread will be ignored, a new thread will be created.
  • Move to Comments Forum (Default = Yes)
    • No = The comments thread (kept or new) remains in source threads forum.
    • Yes = The comments thread (kept or new) is placed in the defined vbcms comments forum.

  • All Comments (Default = No)
    • No = Only comments posted after the post was promoted are displayed in the article.
    • Yes = All comments are displayed (only really relevant if the Keep Original Thread option was used).
