Moving a topic

(Jamie Hayes) #1

I created a topic called “asthma” but did not know how to create it within “health”. Perhaps an admin could move it.

u can move it yourself. I moved one of mine the other day.
it’s part of the edit function


Do you see a little pencil next to the title of your post? I think if you click on that you can change the category.

Yes click on the pencil. The edit box pops up. Category selection is in top right corner.

Take a look at this GIF, it’ll show you the basics:

In the future when you want to create a topic just make sure you are already in the category when you begin your post.

How to flag a post by someone else that needs to be moved to another category?


I’m not in favor of using flags for this purpose. Flags are intended to notify admins of offensive posts and not all admins see flagged posts. Also, if enough people flag the same post it will disappear and potentially affect a member’s trust level.

We move topics around as we see them at current. When more members gain moderator privileges there will be more eyes on board to do this.

@carolT I used the wrong term!!


No worries! Still getting all the categories sorted out. :slight_smile:

And if a member sees something that seems to be in the wrong category, you can always DM a moderator by clicking on their avatar icon and clicking the “Message” button. Please include the URL (web address) for the topic, and we’ll be happy to take a look.

That is some high quality help!

How did you do the animated GIF?, that would be very handy.

There are a variety of tools that do this, but the one I use currently is called LICEcap (terrible name, IMO), which you can find here:

I use the Windows version, but there’s also a version for OSX for the Mac folks.
