@ffmad You can modify the HTML by customising the template in the theme. The theme files are located in node_modules/nodebb-theme-vanilla and node_modules/nodebb-theme-lavender
Best bet would be to fork the lavender theme and make your changes in a new theme for your site
that's what i've done ^^
what i said is that it lacks the 'topic title' in lavender theme
The fork topic feature on "topic tools" is very similar to what I want, but it will create a new thread. I want to select multiple replies and move them all at once to an existing thread.
There is already a feature to move replies one by one, but it's a lot of work if you want to move a whole group of replies.
I think this is plugin territory. In my forum I have several threads where only admins can post updates for users. Not really a discussion topic, more of a change log or mini blog. If posts were to start merging the updates would get tangled.
Just one use case, but I'd prefer the core code not to automatically join double posts....or at least make it an option.
