Hello,

Is there a way for an admin to edit a comment that is posted "normally", so as to:

  • move it to a previous comment to which it is more particularly related (in the same topic)
  • and therefore get it placed under that previous comment, and slightly indented

Regards.

I can't emphasize enough how valuable this would be.

As you know, discussion forums are moving away from being Threaded, and instead having all Replies be at the top level, with selective Quoting (and prompts which encourage starting a New Topic if the subject is changing). The most popular such forum software is now Discourse.

If UserEcho continues to insist on a threaded-reply model of forum, then it is essential that Replies always land in the right place (i.e., underneath the comment being replied to, and indented as appropriate).

Unfortunately, when replying by email and/or replying by a novice who does not use the Reply on the correct preceding Comment, Replies are OFTEN in the wrong place.

As a moderator, having the ability to move the Reply to the correct location helps ensure continuity and clarity for all our Customers.

Hi Terry, now we are moving to "quoting" comment style in the next version. We will test it on new UE version and if it will work we will apply the same style to our current (old) version.

Hello,

Unfortunately, it is not possible now. If you need to do it for some specific comment we can do it for you but it is not possible to do it by yourself for now.
