Building a Better Merge Part I: Interface Ideas

Filed under: MOD Writing, phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 12:14 pm CommentsComments (1) 

One of the features missing from phpBB2 is a Merge Topic option. Forum moderators can delete, lock, split, and move topics. A locked topic can be unlocked. A moved topic can be moved back to its original location. But there is no “undo” for deleting or splitting. If there was a way to undo a “split” it would most likely be called a “merge” which - if available - would also provide a way to merge two similar topics together to combine a discussion. In the next few posts I want to talk about how I designed and wrote a MOD to address the missing merge feature in phpBB2.
