    It's fairly straightforward to make the changes but here's a run-down to save lots of questions, as although it seems second nature to me, I can see why it may not be if you've never seen it before.

    Lock/Open - Thread Tools
    Edit Title - Thread Tools > Edit
    Edit/Delete/Undelete post - Link visible on each post in the thread
    Move Thread - Thread Tools > Move Thread
    Delete Thread - Thread Tools > Delete Thread

    Any of the above can also be done via the main Training Logs forum (or private training logs forum if that's where your log is) - http://www.tmuscle.co.uk/forums/training-logs.12/ Simply tick the checkbox next to a thread you've started and there will be a popup with various options.

    Merge Thread - Tick the checkbox next to your thread in the training logs forum > Tick any other threads you'd like to merge (the order doesn't matter) > Select merge from the popup dropdown menu > Select the thread you'd like to merge into > Confirm.

    Any questions let me know and I'll get the details added to this thread :)

    P.S - You will need to be viewing the website to make any of these changes. The app cannot be used.

    Just a quick word on deleting threads as it may have a bigger knock on effect than you realise (which I failed to make clear initially, sorry):

    You're free to do as you want obviously, that's why I added this, but bear in mind that other people may find your log interesting, so I'd personally always opt to close old logs or merge rather than delete. It would be a shame to see lots of interesting older logs disappear. If it's for privacy or other reasons then by all means delete but if there's no particular reason and you wouldn't mind leaving the content in place then I'd appreciate it.

    Also it's worth noting that for members with less than 1,000 posts outside of their training log, if they delete their training log they will lose permissions as any deleted threads are removed both from the forum post total and any users that have posted in your log (inc yourself) will see their post count drop. If someone is only a little over 1,000 posts and you delete your training log and they've posted in it lots, you will effectively remove their permissions!

    So by all means delete if you absolutely must, but if at all possible please opt to merge or close instead otherwise I will probably get inundated with people asking why their post count has dropped or they have lost their title/permissions!

    To be fair it wasn't possible because of the software the forum uses - not because people were against the idea. In order to do it would mean making all people who had journals mods...

    I quite often read old logs when the forum goes quiet for a day or 2.

    Found some gems.

    Yep, I don't like deleting threads unless it's absolutely necessary, as even if you don't think it's interesting there's likely someone else that will. Best to edit, close it or best of all merge it with your current log. It's interesting to see a members progress over time. What I'd do is just have one log and then as a new chapter starts, edit the opening post and add a link to the appropriate page.

    Hi @Simon
    Just a query on modifying my training log mate.

    What I want to do is extract all of my training posts from my first, obsolete "Man of Volume" journal without the additional banter into a new journal which I will keep locked.
    The reason for this is to have a record of my old training sessions only in a separate log for reference to myself and perhaps for others to browse.

    Is it possible for me to begin doing this and work on the new journal without others posting on it whilst I'm doing it? Is it just a simple matter of locking it, but then will it let me make my changes?

    When I have copied all my entries, I will delete the old journal.

    Thanks :)

    It's no longer possible to delete your training log entirely. The reason for this is that it was having too many knock-on effects with other members. I'll use an actual example to show what can happen (I'm not pointing any fingers as nothing wrong was done, I'm just explaining the problem).

    Floydy deleted his training log the other day and in doing so Northern Lass who'd posted over 200 times in the log lost all of those posts from her post count. This meant that she dropped below 1,000 posts and therefore went from being a 'Top Contributor' to 'Full Member' meaning she could no longer moderate her own training log, have a signature and some other extras that she previously had.

    This has happened a number of times recently. It clearly isn't very fair though it's nobodies fault. Moderators have the ability to remove a thread while ensuring that people's post count doesn't drop, but other members can't do this, therefore from now on, if you'd like to delete your training log please just send a brief message to one of the moderators (or me) and we'll get it sorted for you ASAP.
