I plan to convert a bunch of topics to group PMs in order to depreciate some barely used categories. We can’t do that via the UI (only one by one), nor can I find a bulk way to do it.
As far as I can tell this should work via the console:
- Identify the topics by their category
- Change topic.archetype to
- Change topic.subtype to ‘user_to_user’
- Make topic.category
- In topic_groups (or maybe topic_allowed_groups), add a line with the relevant group_id and topic_id
Does this approach make sense? I need to work out the difference between those topic/groups tables first of course. And do it in a sandbox for starters!!
