This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 38
Released: 27 May 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 6
Not Supported  

Ok, i have completed my Archivhack now

Hackversion: 3.00
Known Bugs: The permissionsystem doesn't work with php4.1.x
What it does:
It compresses a thread in the database, so it would take less space, but it cannot be posted in it anymore.
Zlib-functions must be installed on your server. Without this hack won't work

You can revert Archives to threads when you want it.
A small searchengine is also included.


Install it at your own risk!!!
It should work without problems, it has been tested very long, but you know Murphys Law..

A hint how to use it with PPN's thread description Hack is in the install file.

Thanx to Foxtroter for the help on english Templates.
The conversion can take a longer timespan, read this for optimization.

look at the screenies below

hmm, i think this is a specific issue...
perhaps your timelimit is set to low....

have you tried to copy this thread into another forum?
i'd bet it would also bring up an error then....

I have this working finally...
The only problem I have now is speed, it takes several minutes to archive each thread even when the board load is low.. it will take weeks to archive everything I need too!

This is awesome xenon

A tip for anyone using xenon's great hack. Several times now while trying to archive a large board I started to recieve errors. The control panel would just go to a "page could not be displayed error. Each time I did a repair and optimize on the database and it worked much better after.

just one quick question:
- when i use the hack to archive threads - will the posts (that will be archived) be deleted from the searchindex?

i have the problem, that my searchindex is too big, and causes errors sometimes, because it's a high traffic board...

if you delete the original threads after archiving (it's an option while archiving ) then it will delete them from the searchindex.

hint:
also, if you get problems with the searchengine more often, increase the minimum word length and reindex it, that can help you

that's good!

i've done this two times - but 12,4M rows are still too much...

you're welcome

well the searchindex is always one of the greatest tables, from your site i think you're german are you?
have you downloaded the german badwords.php from vbulletin-germany.com
it will also reduce the searchindex after reindexing

I have installed the hack but have a question. Is there a way I can create a Forum category just for the archived threads and have them show up there on the Main index page?

hmm, you can set up a new category as a link, but not dynamical as you want it.

Could you explain please. The forum category is locked so there would be no additional posting. I just want them to show up on the Main Index page. Is that not possible?
