How do I archive topic?

Post by super.user » Thu Aug 30, 2018 8:16 am

I want to add a solved topic to an archive and remove it automatically later.

I was trying to find this function, and searching extension which will allow me to do this but without any success =(

If there no quick decision, what is the best way to write extension by myself ?

Thanks.

Do you mean you want to move a topic to a forum that's locked so no one can post and automatically delete the topic in, say, 12 months?

You can make a new forum (call it archive or whatever you want) and set the group forum permissions for the registered user group to 'read only'.
In the setup page for that forum you'll see pruning options at the bottom. You can then set a time frame for the topics to be deleted. They will delete when someone enters that forum after the set time frame as that triggers the pruning.
