Description Helder 2010-11-03 09:26:14 UTC
After a user created a Thread[1] and then removed it's content and inserted it in the Thread's summary, I wanted to merge the new content back to the history of Thread's page and for this, I've used [[Especial:MovePage]], whithout leaving a redirect behind, and deleting the existing Thread page when I was asked (so that I could restore it and merge the history of both pages, as described in [[Wikipedia:How to fix cut-and-paste moves]]).

The problem is: when I went to the Thread page (following the link from "successful move" message), it showed the message
*No such thread*
The thread you specified does not exist. 
instead of the content which was previously in the summary page. This should not happen.

Nevertheless, going to the history of the non existent Thread, I could see the message
View or restore 2 deleted edits?
(together with the previous one), and so I was able to restore the page. After restoring the deleted edits, the history[5] is ok, showing all edits (both from Thread and it's summary).

Comment 1 Helder 2010-11-03 09:39:26 UTC
Another problem: now the Thread shows a summary [1], even if there is no summary at all [2].

Also, I haven't found any way of blanking that summary, since it's edit button points to the Thread itself [3].

History merges are not currently supported for LiquidThreads threads.
