Hello SMF devs & community,

I stumbled upon this option two weeks ago and thought, I would set it later, when I am free. It's now my weekend off, and can't find this option - been searching for half an hour, now I give up.  :laugh:

Where is the option to set the 'number of days' a "post-redirection topic" to remain on SMF forum?

if that is what i think it is, it is an SMF 2.1 option and not present in SMF 2.0.

@Illori I saw it in 2.0, I am 100% sure I spotted it. I only have 2.0 installs. I have 2.1 on my local.

Basically the option is for getting rid of these "moved redirection topics" - the default within SMF options (somewhere) was set to 30 days:

The automatic removal is only 2.1
The manual removal is, as Shambles point out, in maintenance

I knew I wasn't crazy. Thanks Mr. Shambles, you earn't a ticket into my good graces.  ;)

Arhhhh dear SMF - a love and hate relationship.  :P Kodos to Shambles for finding it for me tbh, I was losing my mind. What the heck is that option doing there in the first place?!  ;D  It "Rubicks cube" all-over again; a lot of the times it feels like these SMF options are all over the place. Thanks again Shambles. ;D

JUST TO MAKE SURE: So those moved topics pictured here:



... are called "Moved topic notices" right (pictured below)?  :-[

They sure are.

Phew, I was scared it might cause normal topics to be earsed. It's the option being in Maintance that scared me.  ;D Thanks again Shambles.

I got a problem, these "MOVED" topics are not being deleted, they are still in my board, suggestions?  ???

From the screen shot, it would seem that the topics were moved "today"

@Shambles I moved those topics today and selected the 1 day option. So this means 24hrs need to pass before I can delete todays moved topics?

@Kindred I think this could be the problem. I will double check after a day or two, thanks Kindred.  8)

Thanks guys.  :)
