    In the Administrative Options dropdown, select Move/Copy thread. I think Edit Thread can do it, too.

        If you have Private sections in your forum only for administrative purposes, and you have a Trash section, it would be advisable to delete the "Redirect" command in the move template. If the Moderators move a thread and redirect it into the trash, in the private section, the members will have access to that section. I removed the code in the 'threads_move' template in the Thread Management Templates and it ended up looking like this:

        <tr>
        <td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><normalfont><b>Move / Copy method</b></normalfont></td>
        <td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}"><normalfont>
        <input type="radio" name="method" value="move"> Move thread<br>
        <input type="radio" name="method" value="copy"> Copy thread to destination forum
        </normalfont></td>
        </tr>

        Just something you might consider, it's more of a security cover for your private section.
