AndyB submitted a new resource:

Auto Lock - Auto lock threads in selected forums.


Auto lock threads in selected forums. The Options page allows setting the age of the thread and the forums that will be effected.

For example this add-on is very useful to automatically lock old threads in classified forums.

Could you please add an option so we can set threads to get automatically closed after x days regardless if they have new replies or not?


Well-known member
It would be awesome to be able to set the days after the threads should be closed on a per-node basis instead of a global value that applies for all the nodes...

Manually installed - Anyway to select all forums without needing to have each forum number?

Thanks for the add-on (y)
Here are a couple suggestions for future updates:

1. Option to have multiple day values so that for example threads in forum A will auto lock in 7 days and threads in forum B will auto lock in 365 days.

2. Option to display a warning to a member that is about to post in an old thread instead of locking the thread entirely. Such a warning could remind the member of how old the thread is, suggest starting a new thread instead, and force the member to press continue or cancel.
