    Yes, that is a planned feature as is convert Showcase Item(s) to Thread(s).

    It will be in one of the 2nd point releases eg, SC 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 etc.

    Thanks for reply @Bob

    I have been using showcase area as private area. I am moving threads to showcase. Anybody can not add item directly. So this feature is really important for me. Can you give a priority for this feature please?

    Or can you publish a small addon for this?

    I will be implementing similar (not 100% the same) functionality in Showcase 3.X.0 that will allow a Thread to be converted to an Item (and vice versa) as well as Bulk convert Threads to Items (and vice versa) via inline moderation.

    SC 3.1.0 is already reserved for implementing XF 2.1 features, so at the earliest, it would be in SC 3.2.0. It is a high priority for AMS, so once its developed for AMS, it will be rolled out to Showcase and other addons of mine.

    I've already said (multiple times in this thread) that this feature is planned for another addon (AMS) and that once its developed for AMS, that feature would be included with other addons (Showcase being one of them). Bumping this suggestion won't make that happen any faster.

    If you need something quick (now), then I would suggest hiring someone to develop you the functionality that you want/need. This is the same advice that Mike, Kier and Chris D would give when someone is asking for functionality to be quickly implemented in XF, XFMG or XFRM.

    More than anything else, a feature that could come back very useful could be to turn a blogpost into an article, a function that was, for example, in vBulletin.
    But, it is clear, it is only my humble suggestion.

    I have vBulletin 4 Blogs. When I import VB4 into XF 2.1, the Blogs get created as threads under a Blog Category node in XF. What I'd like to do is be able to either Move them into UBS Blogs, or Import them from either from VB4 directly or from the XF Blog Category node.

    Also related, we have a lot of pinned threads that I would like to be able to move over to Resources. It they were just text it wouldn't be a big deal for me to create new Resources, then cut and paste. But all the attachments create a bigger challenge.
