It would be useful for the moderators (yeah, i'm one of them) to be redirected to the created post when using the option of joining 2 posts. Right now it doesn't redirect anywhere.

And right now it doesnt really join two threads, it deletes the old two and creates a new third one, resetting the views count. Or something like that Razz

Not according to me, but I am silly of course =)

To me, merge of threads would be taking one thread and attaching it at the end of another thread =)

It still works fine and all but, that still how I perceive merging of threads =)

That is how it is supposed to work.

But what is the reason of choosing such an algorithm?

When you merge topics you create a new topic, therefor all view counters are set to 0.

In theory that is correct, but in real forum's life that work not so good. As example: I have one big thread about PlayStation 2 in my forum and when users creating a new threds with equal content, I just merge it to a big one. But view counter of big thread is then set to 0. Big topic with thousands of messages have than only a few views. My users don't understand it. It seems just unreasonable...

Well, if you want to maintain view counts it would be a fairly easy tweak for you to make inside the merge_th.php.t script. Just make the query do SUM(views) and stuff the returned value into the views column of the new thread entry.

I still think 0 is the proper value, but I am open to the idea of changing and would like to hear feedback from other FUDforum users on the matter.

Thank you for reply. I don't know PHP, but I will deliver this info to our programmer.

Well, I have this picture thread where the users posts their pictures, it had a couple of thousand views. Now some guy hits the wrong key and posts his picture in a new thread instead.
So, I wanna attach the picture to the correct thread - Move the post to its correct thread so to speak. But when I do, the view count gets reseted. Not that it matters all that much for the functionality, nor do my users cry if a view count gets reseted every now and then after I moderate the threads/forums, but if right should be right, the view count of the thread where you "attach" (merge with your lingo) the other thread should be preserved. Perhaps even summed up as you suggested above.

When you merge topics you create a new topic...

...and all subscriptions to old threads will be destroyed :(((

Actually that's not true, FUDforum does move over the subscriptions to the topic in question as well as read markers.
