This doesn't belong here, but I can't move it, so...
You're talking about this, no?
You're aware that this is a joke? Just somebody playing with photoshop. Sorry to burst any bubbles. I'm not sure anybody ever bothered to make up a "truth table" or assign functions to any of those switches or knobs, but that might be fun.
Hell, I don't know! Isn't this why you get paid the big bucks? I guess General Wiring is better than this place where we put finished schematics, no?
For a wonder, my Admin-Fu seems to have deserted me... I can move individual posts to a different thread, one or more at a time, but I can't seem to move an entire thread intact to a dfferent sub-forum. newey, do you know anything about this?
No bucks of any sized were earned in the making of this post!
Don't know why you're having a problem, sg. Consider it done, I put the whole shebang into "Guitars" because "wiring" didn't seem appropriate. And, I don't know how I missed being twice gently nudged by Ash to move this . . .
sg, you should be able to do this by using the pull-down menus with the gear logo. The menu gives the option to "move post", and when you hover over that, you get the side menu choices, to just move the one post, or "and all below" or "and all above". A new window then opens asking where you want to put the new thread, and you have to re-title it as well. There is also an option to PM the member to tell them that the thread has been moved.
The old software used to have an option to leave a message in the old location, and, if a thread was moved without leaving the message, all the links in the thread would be broken. The new software doesn't leave a message, so the PM to the member helps the person find the moved thread. And the links now stay intact after the thread is moved.
Yes I got all that, but what I'm wondering is, why is there an option to move an entire thread, but nothing behind the curtains, so to speak. Electing to move one or more individual posts, I see the same page (window) you do, but that doesn't leave the thread intact with the original poster's name on the index page. Instead, a new thread is created, with the Admin who moved the thread now being identified as the originator. That's bad form, as they say in the hoity-toity parts of society.
All of which explains why I didn't move it in the first instance (ash's first nudge), I thought I might've been missing something in executing the process. You've more-or-less confirmed that the process is broken, and a kludge is the only way to do it. Sad, that.
No further comment, cuz....
