The Make Merge Topic Control Panel is only ten lines long. It would be helpful to be able to view 20 or thirty lines at once so you have a better chance of seeing duplicates that need to be merged.

Cool

Another suggestion #1: On a given page (hopefully with 30 entries instead of 10), sort the messages by subject instead of in order of being posted, so the duplicates are immediately obvious (because they are all together).

Another suggestion #2: Enable a link to click (like on the subject or something) that would paste the subject into the "New topic title:" field, so I don't have to keep retyping the subjects! Smile

Great program... keep up the good work!

Cool

Another suggestion #1b: Instead of limiting the duplicate detection to a single page, go ahead and sort for the entire board, and present them in sorted order. This will probably be a second option to "Merge Duplicate Topics". This way you can quickly remove all duplicates all the way across the board.

Suggestion 1b would lead to some awesome thread consolidation on the forum board.

Cool
