Add-on Auto Turn On/Off Forum


Well-known member
I think we should have an addon where we can define specific time of the day where we want the forum to be turned off and then back on at specified time through an addon-on
Why would we need this?
For auto backup scripts, that takes backup of your forum everyday. Its always good idea to have it forum lock so no data can be written while generating backup. It can also be configured to have forum locked when server load is more than normal.

I misunderstood earlier, I thought it was to turn off individual forums rather than the whole board.

This is a bit easier, I have a bit of time for this. How long would you say the board needs to be off for? 10 minutes? 30? An hour?
