And there's no "rule" that says you can't keep all the aspects of a project in one thread, just advice that says it might make sense to put a particular query about a specific category in a thread with a title that invites responses about that particular subject.
If you were interested in bathrooms and were walking down a street and saw a "bathroom" shop it would attract you to it, but not if you were interested in buying a new sofa for your living room or a bed for the new loft conversion. Likewise, if you went out looking for a bathroom shop and saw one dealing in UFH you'd only go in if you were interest in fitting UFH to your bathroom.
I'll sometimes add (in brackets) something that will indicate how that thread has spread into an area that would be of interest to someone looking for information on that [new] area. In that case it's a bit like the shop we went into last Saturday whilst looking for headboards - nothing outside to indicate they sold anything but "Oak Furniture", but we went in anyway on the off-chance and they had a line of headboards against their back wall. Headboards are, arguably, furniture, but when the shop has Bensons For Beds one side and 'World of Beds' a couple of units down on the other side, it isn't going to sell many headboards.
Like I said, the advice to put a query about a specific area of interest in a thread with a title that refers to that specific area will get you more responses and help others looking for such specific information in the future, long after you've moved in to your new house or lie soaking in your new bath luxuriating in the heat from your UFH.

A section can be copied and pasted across, but still has to be edited to make it relevant to the "other" thread.
It's why new members are advised - and told how - to do a search for their particular area of interest when they arrive for the first time. It don't 'arf save some time.

But title it "Tuning a Ford Mustang" and it's a whole different story for owners of Ford Mustangs, actual and/or aspiring.

For a blog, you have to ask David ( Admin ) for bloggers rights, just send him a pm. A bit of copy and paste and then you can transfer the best bits over to the blog.
