#5535 new enhancement

Allow moving threads into the Plugin/Theme support forums

Reported by: dd32 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


Currently to move a thread into the Plugin/Theme support forums, a moderator is required to load wp-admin, add the appropriate taxonomies, and then change the forum to 'Plugins' or 'Themes'.

It'd be much easier if there was a move-to-plugin/theme option available in the thread view.

A few weeks ago I have mentioned an issue related to the moving of threads from one forum section into another.

I would hope that users that are subscribed to a forum will be notified by email when a thread is moved into that section.

To better understand, here's what happened:
A user posted a support thread in the General Forums, but the issue was with one of my themes.
The thread was moved into my forum, but I was not notified of it.
So I discovered the support question by accident about 3 weeks later.
This is not good user/author experience.

Please consider sending an email notification to subscribers similarly to how it is done when a thread is first created.

Thank you.
