  • Assigning thread prefixes

    Hello,

    II have a forum called "Off-Topic." None of the threads in the forum currently have prefixes, but I'd like to assign them all a prefix called "Off-Topic." What is the easiest way to accomplish this?

    Thanks!

    There is no option to mass-apply prefixes to threads. But in your case wouldn't the prefix be redundant? The threads are already in a forum called "Off-Topic".

      Hi Jake,

      Yes, it is redundant. I've decided to consolidate some of the smaller sub-forums into a larger forum, and use thread prefixes to differentiate topics. So this is just one step in the process--I'll still need to mass-move them to the larger forum once the prefix is in place.

      I ended up using a simple MySQL query to accomplish this task. Here is the query in case anyone else finds it useful:

      UPDATE thread SET prefixid='XXXX' WHERE forumid='24'


      Obviously, you'll set XXXX to be your prefix ID and "24" to the number of your target forum.
