    I know that this is pretty old, but I have some questions regarding the merger.
    A) Is it possible to just move one thread into another without having to chose a new title? Say, Move thread a into thread a’.
    B) Are the posts automatically ordered per date or can I chose another order?

    Thanks for your help,

  2. Tom,
    Yes you can. When you go to the Node view and click on a category you will always see check boxes next to each thread. Just select one you want to move and the one you want it moved too click Merge from the drop down menu and you will see another box with options. Set them as you wish and click “Merge Threads” and there ya go!
    As far as I can tell you cannot change the order unless you have a custom theme or plugin that supports this.

    Thanks again!
