    Is there a reason this was posted against the Mobile Suite? The functioanity isn't something that is caused by the Mobile Apps. There are already JIRAs open for this in the vBulletin project. As far as I am aware, one of them was written by you.

    The behavior you're talking about is actually the designed behavior to create cohesive conversations. Posts within a topic are sorted by the time they are posted at. Making replies into comments keeps the conversation going. If we change this, there would just as many customers complaining because posts are now out of order.

      I'm not asking for the posts to be out of order..The issue is the posts should stay as posts and not turn into comments. If the only way is to keep it as comments why do the pics disappear? No body complains about that? I find that hard to believe

        If you keep the replies as replies, they will be out of order. They will no longer be tied to the original post properly. Even the starting post may change if the topic you're copying into another has an earlier start date.

          What is the point of copying something if its not duplicated?

          Not a lot... That is why everything you have mentioned considered a bug and needs developer work to have fixed. If I had a quick answer I would give it to you. I am not sure copying topics is the best solution but you have your reasons. Obviously, I am not able to help you here so until there are bug reports made to make the system work exactly the way you want and they go through the process, I can't do anything further. It doesn't matter what I say or ask to try and understand the problem, I am simply being thwarted from understanding at every turn.

          We copy because the site has technical sub forums. The technical threads that are contained in these subs are combined from many different threads into one but relate to the same main topic. When I click copy posts that's what it should do. Now to throw another stone into this when I copy,, many times the copy doubles each one. Then I have to go back and delete each copied double. I may as well also mention that when I do them singularly so the posts don't turn into comments the pictures that showed after being copied disappear on both the original and copied thread. This issue has a JIRA from a previous time. Trevor verified this on my site and determined the pic links became broken. The ticket can be found in my recent history. So all in all this copying / duplicating situation needs a total overhaul
