\arguments{
\item{...}{Fitted models (see details), all fit on the same data, or a single \code{BFBayesFactor} object.}

\item{prior_odds}{Optional vector of prior odds for the models compared to the first model (or the denominator, for \code{BFBayesFactor} objects). For \code{data.frame}s, this will be used as the basis of weighting.}

\item{missing}{An optional numeric value to use if a model does not contain a parameter that appears in other models. Defaults to 0.}

\item{verbose}{Toggle off warnings.}

\item{effects}{Should results for fixed effects, random effects or both be returned?
Only applies to mixed models. May be abbreviated.}

\item{component}{Should results for all parameters, parameters for the conditional model
or the zero-inflated part of the model be returned? May be abbreviated. Only
applies to \pkg{brms}-models.}

\item{parameters}{Regular expression pattern that describes the parameters that
should be returned. Meta-parameters (like \code{lp__} or \code{prior_}) are
filtered by default, so only parameters that typically appear in the
\code{summary()} are returned. Use \code{parameters} to select specific parameters
for the output.}

\item{iterations}{For \code{BayesFactor} models, how many posterior samples to draw.}
}
\value{
A data frame with posterior distributions (weighted across models) .
}
\description{
Extract posterior samples of parameters, weighted across models.
Weighting is done by comparing posterior model probabilities, via \code{\link{bayesfactor_models}}.
}
\details{
Note that across models some parameters might play different roles. For example,
the parameter \code{A} plays a different role in the model \code{Y ~ A + B} (where it is a main effect)
than it does in the model \code{Y ~ A + B + A:B} (where it is a simple effect). In many cases centering
of predictors (mean subtracting for continuous variables, and effects coding via \code{contr.sum} or
orthonormal coding via {\code{\link{contr.bayes}}} for factors) can reduce this issue. In any case
you should be mindful of this issue.
\cr\cr
\cr\cr
Note that for \code{BayesFactor} models, posterior samples cannot be generated from intercept only models.
\cr\cr
This function is similar in function to \code{brms::posterior_average}.
}
\note{
For \code{BayesFactor < 0.9.12-4.3}, in some instances there might be
some problems of duplicate columns of random effects in the resulting data
frame.
