Requested by Floris

This is another simple script based on the Close thread after 30 days .... BUT ...

This one will auto move all threads to an archive forum where the last post is 365 days or older

There is 2 variables for you to edit
1)
Defult is set to "1"
$newforum = the forum number that these threads are to be moved to

2)
Defult is set to 365
this means that threads that havnt been replied to in the last 365 days will be moved to the nominated archive forum
you can change 365 to whatever days you like

Way cool!
I asked you less then a few hours ago to give me a birthday present hack. And here it is, exactly what I asked. As always - very pleased with your professional services trafix.

Nice one, sure could use this !

Possible to also do one "Auto Close thread after 100 posts and create a new one with the same title" ( but append a part X to it where X is 2 if the new post created has been branched once, 3 if branched twice and so on .. ) and with the first post of this new thread to have the content : " In continuation of this previous thread here: XX )" where XX is the link to the previous closed thread ?

Have always been meaning to try something like this for my forums but never got round to doing it.

Hope you can release something like this, since you seem to be on a roll with these cron jobs trafix

after i went to bed i started thinking about this one ...... careful where you archives are and who has access to it ..... remember that it will move ALL threads to the archive forum .... even from you pvt forums ... eg your mod or admin forums.

The hint here is to keep them bumped before the move time has expired

How hard would it be to amend the script to move the messages from a live forum inside a sub-category to an archived forum within a designated "Archives" category?

For example:

LIVE CATEGORY
All The Latest (sub-category)
|---> News (forum)

ARCHIVES CATEGORY
---> News (archived forum)

What I'm trying to achieve is not to place "all" messages from all forums into a single forum....rather....place messages from a single forum into a designated archived forum of the same name but within a category called "Archives".

Hope that makes sense!?!?

Thanks.

So it's something you would consider to incorporate into this hack or something I would need to request of you off the forum?

Many thanks trafix - excellent work, thank you.

Just to push the envelope a little further How might I be able to include a start & end time? In other words, let's say I wanted to move all messages from a specific year, so for example....January 1st, 2002 to December 31st, 2002....into an archive sub-forum called 2002 Archives?

That way, at the end of each year, I'd be able to archive it's messages and start over from scratch with a 'clean' set of live forums for the new year.

Just an idea. Thanks.
