How do you move a topic into another category?


I am a new with the discourse forum and just spent over an hour trying to find out how to move a thread. I can’t find it here either.

Could somebody help me out, please? I created the topic myself and want to move it to another category.

Thank you!

Edit first post in the topic, select a category in the category drop down.


Thank you for the quick answer, fantastic! :smiley:

I want to move it to a category that is connected to another group and can only be seen by this other grlookst looks like that is not possible because the protected category doesn’t show, right?

You’re not seeing it when you click the pencil icon next to the topic title?

eg. for this topic you could try Feature to Support.


No, I didn’t see it. But then I added the user I am talking to in this thread to the group with the next lecture and now I can see it. Everything worked out fine now .

If you’re the admin you should see all categories.

You can also click the pencil next to the title to be able to edit title, tags, and category.


Lots to learn. I am coming from a phpbb forum. :woman_technologist:.
