Is there a way to tag multiple posts in a thread to move them to a new one. Just moved several individually because they were about a different problem than the original discussion making it difficult to follow either topic.

It's a problem common to many forum.
I've not found one yet on a BOINC based forum :-(

Thanks, I suspected as much but thought it worth asking.

That's why tabs in the browser are useful, open each post to move in its own tab and then just do down the tabs to move them.
But as it's possible to delete multiple PMs by checking them, I think this should be an option as well. I'll go to Github and see if something like it has been asked yet and if not, ask it.

Thanks, multiple tabs is how I did it but as you know, checking them all would be easier and slightly quicker.
