MOD Title: Auto Archive
MOD Description: Automatically archives threads x days after their date in the calendar. Topic Calendar MOD ( http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=150857 ) has to be installed!
MOD Version: 0.1.0

MOD Download: http://www.hashers.ca/trash/mod/autoarchive.rar
Last Stable version: n/a

More explanation: The Topic Calendar MOD ( http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=150857 ) allows you to associate a thread with a calendar date/time. The Auto Archive MOD is designed to automatically move threads with a calendar date in the past to a separate forum.
I designed this to use it for a clan match schedule, so that completed matches will be moved to an archive thread.

Install instructions can be viewed here as well: http://www.hashers.ca/trash/mod/archive.xml

Please tell me if anything here has to be fixed to comply with the phpBB MOD rules - this is my first one.

Planed featurs:
- archiving threads with no reply in x days (probably by mid-february) and making this feature work without TC MOD installed

Thanks for your interest and any suggestions.

Interesting mod :)

Can you make it standalone?

Once I add the "archive threads with no reply in x days" option I will make it work without Topic Calendar.
But TC probably will still be required for the functionality it currently has (archiving threads x days after an expiry date) since I don't see the point in gutting out the TC (+ atm I don't know what license it's published under). It would need most of the TC features anyways minus one link on the overall_header.tpl and a few new files. So you could just leave out those steps in the TC installation process.

I'll post some screenshots later on to explain the functionality a little better since people might not know what exactly this is for if they don't know the Topic Calendar MOD.

Yes, as I really don't see much of a need for the calendar mod. This does seem handy.

Woul dit also be possible to auto archive threads for example 30 days after the start of the thread?

Yup, I agree - should make a stand alone version w/o dependency on Calendar MOD.
