Per forum basis? o.o Sweet! I have to install this.

I just installed it. Piece of cake, so to speak.

Question: If you do not enable Auto-Locking in Configuration, it doesn't matter whether or not you enable it in Management as it will not function, right? I assume that this is the case because, if not, I see no point in having that on/off function in Configuration.

The MOD seems to be working fine on my forum.

Perhaps a feature can be added to exclude particular topic(s) from being auto-locked? I have a sticky on the forum where I've enabled auto-lock that I do not want to be locked.

Like pruning, stickys and announcements will not be locked.

Correct. The idea behind having the on/off in the configuration, is you can set it up for your entire board, and then enable it when you are happy with the setup.

Just to confirm -- enabling Auto-Locking in Configuration will NOT make it so that the topics in ALL forums will be Auto-Locked. It just means that, when turned on and when enabling it in the forums you want, it will function. Otherwise, if you have it turned off in Configuration, if you enable it in the forums you want, it won't function.

Another question -- did you even post your MOD here when it was in BETA development? If not, where did you post it as you were developing it? Or is it that you developed this MOD privately or with a few select individuals?

Correct. It will not auto-lock in all forums, it will merely turn on auto-locking in forums that have it turned on.

This was such a simple MOD that I didn't feel a need to post it for beta testing. It was developed privately, tested by me, and then submitted to the MOD database.

Do you have any future plans in terms of new MODs?

I'd ask you via PM, but I lost that priviledge due to my advertising my forum via PM.

Just whatever I need for my own forum that I feel is worth sharing. ;-)
