    What about instead of created, threads that received no replies in time frame

    Is this a manual process or does it run on a cron job

    so its not actually auto delete ?

    I was presuming this would automatically delete threads in x forum after x days automatically eg via chron

    still helpful but not what I thought when reading the title

    would be great if thread could be deleted via chron

    Why would someone install this, rather than using the Batch Update Threads feature?

    also, I wouldn't want the stickies to be deleted from the forum

    Which Batch Update Threads can do. Amongst a lot of other criteria.

    This was the first thing I asked, even before having xF installed. :)
    Delete post older than...


    @Chris D in Batch Update Threads you have to specify the date, with this add-on you specify how many days, and runs automatically.

    @AndyB thanks for this add-on! :)

    That's how it works now.

    When I asked the question, the add on didn't do anything that batch update threads couldn't do.

    Excellent - we have this currently for our classifieds & auction watch sections in the non-XF platform we're leaving. I hate having posts re expired ebay auctions cluttering up the place hence the auction section & the need for automated clean-up. :)

    What would need to happen to make the autodelete work with just a certain usergroup. Say, guests..
    Any easy hack to this add-on for that you think?

    Can we add a option to make it so that it counts from the last post, not from creation date?

    Because it's automatic?

    Our auction watch section. Auction info expires after 90 days - so do our posts.
    Classifieds - unless user deletes they delete automatically after 60 days

    Why quote a post I made from 5 months ago without any understanding of what my comment relates to?

    The post you quoted was 100% accurate when I posted it.

    At the time I wrote that post, this add on did nothing that the Batch Update Threads feature couldn't do.
