Allow "Auto-Locking" of Topics

Post by Heo32 » Sat Dec 15, 2018 9:32 pm

Topics get old. After a while, it could get pointless for topics to receive responses from users.

I would like to see the ability for topics to get auto-locked after a period of time (as a forum feature and option), with the ability to choose a time period in which topics get auto-locked due to being considered too old to receive future replies to them.

I went to your board and looked for an hour or so, but did not see the women without underwear.

Agreed with 3Di.
I have many "old" topics (e.g. newspaper/website -comments on recurring events) which are dormant but are resurrected almost every year.
An autolock feature would need too many configuration options (topic-based/forum-based).
As an extension yes, default feature no.
The year is 2192. The British Prime Minister visits Brussels to ask for an extension of the Brexit deadline. No one remembers where this tradition originated, but every year it attracts many tourists from all over the world.

Perhaps I should resurrect this and make it 3.2 compatible - viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2322306

Just updated my Topic Age Warning extension in the above post. This is compatible with phpBB 3.2.4

Isn't pruning just this type of thing? With the one and only difference that you still want to keep the topics instead of deleting them (but instead locking them)? Manual or automatic pruning and an additional option to lock topics should be a great compromise in terms of management.

Apart from this you're already able to lock several topics at once thru MCP > Main > View forum.

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.
