    How can i copy a thread onto an existing one without all the responses on the one being copied turning into comments except for the first post?

    I would like it to remain the same as it was before i copied it.

    This has happened since get go so the updates have not caused this issue.

    I don’t think this is possible at this time. I would have to run some tests to check.

      Thank you Wayne for checking into this.
      I need to do a lot of thread merging on my site, and this issue has thrown a wrench into it.

        Ok i found a possible work around for this issue but now something else popped up. I tried using the MERGE topics which combines them but in doing this the merged thread doubles every post plus adds pictures to posts that were not originally there...geez.
