Hi all!

Is it posible to automatically delete all the forum locked topics after 1 month?

If so, how can i do that?

I cant found topic pruning on the CP


Thanks :)


Admin -> Forum Maintenance -> Remove Old Posts

You can then set the number of days not posted in and:

- Any sort of topic.
-  Moved topic notices.
-  Locked topics.


Is there a way to do it automatically?

Like, when a post gets to 30 days old, it deletes itself :D

Thanks :)


No, and I wouldn't suggest it due to the fact you might at one point want to keep them.

But it doesn't take much to run that every few days or once a week.  I doubt you're getting the traffic that will push your db to limit and require such pruning so regularly.

I must agree with you!

Thanks! Manual pruning will be :D
