buddypress change forum to another group

One of my subscribers started a forum in the wrong group. How do I switch a forum created by a subscriber to another group?

My groups and forums are very specific and create a lot of comments. I do not want this particular forum in the group that it is now in.

    Hiya JoAnn,

    I don’t know of an easy way to do this. You could remove the forum (and possibly change the group ID it’s associated with) by looking in the database. Just head to wp_bb_forums and take a look there. You should be able to delete the entry at the least. Then the user can create the forum in the correct directory.

    Anyone know of a better way?

    Thanks. Since each commenter followed the first posters lead and stayed on the wrong topic I just went ahead and changed the group name, which can be done as admin right on the ‘groups’ page while signed in.

    But, if it happens in the future it looks like it could be a problem so any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
