If you want users to be able to archive (move) their threads to a specific forum, then this addon is what you need.

This addon has been working on AVForums for a number of years to allow users to archive their classified adverts. I decided to package it up and release it to the Xenforo community.
While I use it to archive threads from all our classified forums in to a single archive forum, you can choose a different archive forum for each of your forums. All the settings, including the text for the archive button are customisable for each forum.

If you wish to purchase or renew a license for this product, please register on my forum and then send a message to Stuart Wright to request access to purchase. Please include the URL of the forum you wish to use the product on.

User Interface​

Where archiving is available, there is an archive link at the top of a thread.


When the Archive link is clicked, the user must confirm that they wish to archive.


Archiving will then move the thread to the pre-defined archive forum.


Setting up archiving is done in the node edit page.

Forums > Nodes > [select the forum you wish to enable archiving for]
  • Enable archiving with a tick box
  • Select the forum you wish the archived threads to be moved to (yes, you can have a different archive forum for each forum)
  • Specify the text for the Archive button
  • Options to enable auto-archiving with user notification

Further down the forum edit page, there are the tick boxes to specify which prefixes can be archived.
  • For the prefixes enabled for this forum, tick the additional tick box to enable archiving only for threads with each specific prefix.
Note that if no prefixes are selected, all threads can be archived. If any prefixes are selected, only those prefixes can be archived.


There are the usual permissions you would expect.
