I did not understand, can you clarify?
There is the code: / / Begin: Lock old topics in my file.

It worked perfectly, thanks mtrs! But I would like moderators and administrators were not affected, as was the first code. You can, please help me?

Moderators can reply to a locked topic, then unlock the topic.
or

Code: Select all

	if (!$auth->acl_gets('a_', 'm_') && !$auth->acl_getf_global('m_'))
	{
		//Put your code where moderators/admins are not affected
	}
I abandoned all of my mods.

Again thank you! I had forgotten the privilege of moderators and administrators. Congratulations on the code.

		trigger_error('This topic is too old to reply, so, it\'s locked now. Thanks.');
	} 
}
//End: Lock old topics
Will this also lock topics which already are posted?

It seems to be working. But doesnt lock with the "locked button". :) Its okay with me.
But is it somehow possible for admins and moderators to avoid being affected by it?

I am trying to configure this so a topic will be locked within seconds after posting... and only in specified forums. Basically I want the user to post and then the topic to lock automatically so it cannot be replied to.

Any chance on getting a bit of help with the code for this??
Thanks

Hello,
I have a question there.
Used that code everything works and its really fine. I liked your job!

But there is only one problem if you can say me how its fixable I will be really happy.

When a user press more then 1 time on reply or locked button they see the error message on old topics.
But admins see more then 1 time a entry on ACP over moderation logs. If its possible to fix it? that only admins have to see it 1 time and not multiplie entrys ? Some dont want to see it more then 1 time because its only spam up the log overview.


And second: Is it possible to lock the topics immediatly ?
Maybe its possible to make a code that admins can press on one button over acp and all old topics get closed.
Because the spam in moderation logs is really bad and one of these 2 things have to be fixed up ... so thats only my last problem which I have now.

I need any help.
I will be very happy if anyone can help me by that question!


Thanks & Best regards

Re: Auto lock topic

Post by Rattus Norvegicus » Fri Apr 22, 2011 9:33 pm

I have been looking at the codes in this topic, and now i'm trying to make my own (I'm a complete newbie).

My goal is to auto lock topics older than 90 days when users enters them, and only in a few specific forums.

For that, I have put this code in the viewtopic.php:

Code: Select all

$excluded_forum_ids = array(149);
if (in_array($forum_id, $excluded_forum_ids))
{

       if (isset($topic_data['topic_last_post_time']) < time() - 7776000)
       {

          $sql = 'UPDATE ' . TOPICS_TABLE . "
             SET topic_status = " . ITEM_LOCKED . "
             WHERE topic_id = $topic_id";
          $db->sql_query($sql);

       }
}
It does only lock topics in the specified forum id 149, but instead of only locking those topics older than 90 days it locks EVERY topic, even the new ones.

Please help me figuring out what causes this huge problem?

Never mind...

This code does the job :mrgreen:

Code: Select all

$excluded_forum_ids = array(149);
if (in_array($forum_id, $excluded_forum_ids))
{

$sql = 'SELECT topic_last_post_time
            FROM ' . TOPICS_TABLE . '
            WHERE topic_id = ' . $topic_id;
               
        $result = $db->sql_query_limit($sql, 1);
          
        if ($row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result))
        {
            $topic_age = $row['topic_last_post_time'];
        }
        $db->sql_freeresult($result);
                  
        if ((time() - $topic_age) > 47520000 )
        {
            $sql = 'UPDATE ' . TOPICS_TABLE . "
                SET topic_status = " . ITEM_LOCKED . "
                WHERE topic_id = $topic_id";
            $db->sql_query($sql);            
        }
}
I've put it in the viewtopic.php right before the lines:

Code: Select all

// This rather complex gaggle of code handles querying for topics but
// also allows for direct linking to a post (and the calculation of which
// page the post is on and the correct display of viewtopic)
There might be a better place to put it in the viewtopic.php file, but my selection seems ok.

Sorry for bumping this old topic.
I tested a shorter code for this.

Open
posting.php
Find

Code: Select all

// Determine some vars
Before add

Code: Select all

//Begin: Lock old topics
if ($mode != 'post' && !$auth->acl_gets('a_', 'm_') && !$auth->acl_getf_global('m_') && isset($post_data['topic_last_post_time']) && $post_data['topic_status'] == ITEM_UNLOCKED)
{
   //If topic last post time is older than 30 days, topic will be locked. 86400 is one month in seconds * 30 = 1 month
   if ($post_data['topic_last_post_time'] < (time() - (86400 * 1)) && $post_data['topic_type'] == POST_NORMAL)
   {
      //Lock topic and give error warning
      $sql = 'UPDATE ' . TOPICS_TABLE . "
         SET topic_status = " . ITEM_LOCKED . "
         WHERE topic_id = $topic_id";
      $db->sql_query($sql);

      add_log('mod', $forum_id, $topic_id, 'LOG_' . 'LOCK', $post_data['topic_title']);
      trigger_error('This topic is too old to reply, so, it\'s locked now. Thanks.');
How can I modify this code to make it close topics older than 7 days?

This seemed to fix my issue from the previous topic which I posted in last night.

Thank you!
