This mod Adds the Ability to Move all posts in board(s) to another board based on How old it is and with special options like only moved topics, locked topics, and/or ignoring stickied topics. This is great for use with Archive boards and mass moving topics of old age at once.

Installed and tested this mod, which works fine.

one small thing though.
When you press the move button, it still sends the old "warning, these posts will be deleted etc etc".

This concerned me a bit, as I DO use an archive forum and didn't want to lose posts, so I did it on a test forum and it didn't delete the posts but moved them as expected.
However, if you could change or remove that message, it might be less alarming for people.

Sweet !! Waiting for this for ages.

As the dan said also, I do not like how it says the posts will be deleted.

Oops.. Thanks for noticing that.. I have fixed it and uploaded it as V1.1 that also fixed a spacing error just before the day input box..
btw.. To upgrade. Remove old version first...
Or You just have to add 1 language string and edit the admin.template.php to use that new language string.. Which I can help if you dont want to do the upgrade..

Quote from: denislici on October 25, 2006, 08:26:46 AMi cant download it !!!!

Please try to download again or try a different browser... The download should work fine.. If not get ahold of a member of the SMF team to have them sort the issue. The download issue would be their issue not mine as the mod is hosted on their site.

yes, just tested that, and the text has been changed.
Thanks for that  :) , I know it's only a cosmetic change, but an important one.

512: parseModification(): The filename 'index.php' is not a full path!
File: /home/xxxxxxxxxxx/public_html/forum/Sources/Subs-Package.php
Line: 1330

Starting to feel like there is bad support on this mod when my issue isnt even acknowledged.

Works fine.  I was wondering if it is possible to send it to a child board?  I wanted to create an archive board off of a board.

Thanks

You should be able to send it to any board..

@littleone..

Sorry for making you wait.. Some reason I didn't get notified of the topic reply...

But the error you getting is due to a little code I missed..
You can download 1.2 and it will install..

Though I don't guarantee my mods work for 1.1 RC2 as they were developed on 1.1 RC3..
But it should as only minor changes were made between the two..

Okay it's been along two days of forum maintenance so I should stop asking questions without first taking a nap or drinking more coffee.

It works, even on the child boards.  I was using my test board and because after the fresh install I didn't bother setting it up exactly the same as the real board I didn't....have any child boards.  Once I created a child board it of course showed up on the drop down menu.

Peace and thanks again,
Michael

Hi SleePy,

Is there a way to make it automatically move topics from Main board to Its child board? For example setting [7] days since last post, will move those topics which are inactive for 7 days.

:)

SleePy

No its not a feature in this mod..
You could make a script to use this mods function to do that though.. Then run it with cron jobs every 7 days..

But that sounds like another mod as it is.. This mods moves massive topics at once to a single board. It does not watch for inactive topics to move them..

Hello,

First of all great mod, it worked really well.

But I have one suggestion.  It would be nice if by default all of the "Specific Boards" were not checked (as is the case for "remove old posts")  I think people may forget they are all checked and accidentally move all topics/posts to a new board... I would know, I did; and it was a lot of fun fixing it  ;)
Additionally if for some reason they wanted to move them all they could just hit the select all button or something.

This is just a thought I had that would make it "safer."

Where is in the admin panel settings to configure the boards and anymore?

Hi,

Go to Maintenance -> Forum Maintenance and you will see the new option - Forum Maintenance - Remove Old Posts


Cheers

Hey pmp6nl,
I know its a bit late but that is why there is a javascript notice that you can't undo the action. You should always double check when doing this or the delete maintenance

This is in your Admin -> Forum Maintenance area.

I just installed this, but it's not showing up in the Forum Maintenance, could it be because of custom themes?
