Automatically Close Old Threads After X Days

vB Version: 3.6.2 Rating: (27 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 279
Released: 04 Nov 2006 Last Update: 05 Nov 2006 Downloads: 1282
Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

This product will automatically close threads. Administrators have the option of setting the number of days until a thread closes, including or excluding sticky threads, and including or excluding forums by ID.

Threads can be closed X days after the thread was created or X days after the last post.

See this product in action on the Voxilla Forums.

Installation

Close Old Threads installs from a single XML file, no other file uploads are necessary.

The installation process automatically creates a php file in the cron folder, therefor the cron folder must be writeable by vBulletin.

You may need to chmod the includes/cron folder to 777 before installation and back (note your settings) after installation is complete.

The installer then creates a daily cron job.

Close Old Threads is inactive upon installation and must be configured and enabled from the vBulletin Options menu. See the attached screen shot for a sample.


Update

1.1 Administrators can now select all forums, or a subset of forums for inclusion or exclusion. The previous version only had options for all forums and an exclusion list.

When trying to install, all I get is:

Error opening file to writing

Also, will this work with 3.6.1?

I was able to fix the error by CHMOD includes/cron/ to 777 - I am testing it with 3.6.1 now.

It should work on 3.6.1. I'm using 3.6.2, so I didn't want to make any claims without knowing it would work.

What do you mean by section?

If you want to limit Close Old Threads to a subset of forums, enter the forum ID's to exclude in the control panel settings page.

i mean for people who have around 20 sections and in one section around 2-4 sub-sections
for them it`s hard to exclude everything
