[UPDATE] April 8, 2015 - I updated this entry with new information. The question and it's details read differently. I have searched for this answer and have not yet found it.
We are running 1.7.1 on a prototype server and want to deploy this to run along side or replace our existing static knowledge base. I'm expecting traffic of up to 3K visitors per day, so this issue is important for us to sort out.
When I try to move a question to a different category I get this message in Red (it says 6 characters because I changed the minimum character count for new questions from 12 to 6, but this is just a side effect of the real issue.
Please provide more information - at least 6 characters
We figured out what the problem was and I believe we have found a bug.
When a question has been solved the question cannot be moved to a new category.
Even the admin cannot move it unless the Posting option:
"Close questions with a selected answer" is unchecked.
We understand that users, editors can't move posts, but moderators and admin's should be able to move locked posts. The MO here is that in a perfect world people will ask questions in the right category, but newbies / frustrated people will just post wherever. In the event a moderator does not see it in time and it's and the question is answered, it will need to be moved to it's proper home. Even locked topics in a phpBB forum can be moved.
Is there a workaround or mod that allows this if that option is checked?
or where in the php code would we change the value to unlock this functionality?
