New Discussion Features Available

Posted on Sun, Apr 15, 2007

New options for moving and burying discussion posts are available. Read for more information.

For sites with very active discussion, you may want fine-grained control over messages. We now offer two new features. The first is the ability to move a given message (and its replies) into a new topic in a forum. This can be useful if you have a topic that splintered off in another direction - at the point where the subject changed, you can move this into its own topic for clarity.

The second new feature is the ability to bury off-topic or abusive posts. This is useful when you have posts which you aren't comfortable with, but you don't want to officially censor your forums. You can use the new "Bury" feature to "minimize" a message. It will still show up in the list, but you need to click it to actually view the message.

To keep a clean interface, neither of these features are enabled by default, since most sites have no use for them. If you'd like these enabled, just drop us a line and we'll take care of it for you.
