Along with managing forum threads you also have a few tools to manage forum posts.

Probably the most common action you want to do with forum posts is edit them for content. If you have the Forums Moderate permission you are able to edit any forum post. Upon updating the post, an "edited by" message will be displayed with the post, showing who made the latest changes.

Moving Posts
As it may not be practical to list all of the forum threads you could move your post to (in larger communities the threads count could easily be in the thousands), instead you must know the ID of the thread you want to move it to. This ID can found in the URL as described below:

Say you wanted to move a forum post into the thread at The ID of this thread is 12345, so you would enter 12345 in the "Move to Thread" field.
