I suggest taking a look at your html sanitization settings make sure html isn't allowed in markdown settings.
Next step would be to move the other 2 topics from that category and check if you still see broken markup.
@PitaJ That worked thanks.
We can easily move posts of second topics to end of first topic just after last post.
Topic 1 first post
Topic 1 last post
Topic 2 first post
Topic 2 last post
@sanatisharif I'm trying to think of a situation where this would be useful. The only scenario in my head would be a topic that is the same as another but doesn't have a conversation yet. If both topics had more than just that first post you'd end up adding a different conversation (though related) to the first conversation. It has a big potential to confuse users. Although, seeing as it is an admin function, it would be up to the admin to determine when it is best suited. So not a horrible feature, but I don't actually see it being used very often.
This is a real example:
https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/issues/4804 - seems like this will be released in 1.7.2
Yes indeed, @baris heard everybody's pleas and added it
How are we doing on the "merge topics" front? I'm trying to merge some topics together as admin but can't find the option to do so. Has this been implemented and I'm too dumb to find it?
@kelnel you merge two topics by selecting them both in the category view, and going up to the topic menu.
@pitaj Thank you so much!
Is it possible to reverse the way these two topics are merging? I would like "ADA Masternode" to merge to "The Tavern" and not the other way around
I'll pretty sure that it's by posting date, and there's no way around it. I assume you've already checked selecting them in different orders.
I think you should also be able to move selected posts from inside another topic and move them to the second.
Yes, the way topic merging works is to combine the posts as they are posted, so timeline is not disrupted. We don't just append the posts from topic to topic like in other softwares.
@julian The merge topic is not working. Please see attached image. hopefully it is self explanatory. Basically the Merge key remains inactive, even though topics have been selected. Please advise. Thanks!
Can you please report this to our GitHub repo?
@julian is there any update on this? We are having the same problem with 1.12.2
"Merge" button stays inactive...
Clicking on the topic title should work. Needs better UX though since other tools work by clicking the user avatar.
