What to do with "old" content?

    Most threads (although the subjects are interesting) seems to "die out" on my forum (some lasts longer). Do you have the same experience? After a maximum of a month or so it's like that content does not exist anymore. How can you bring up old interesting topics again and promote them?

    I use an add-on that locks threads after 2 years with nothing posted in that time.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    What's the name of the add-on?

    If you feel it is good for your visitor, you could give it a response just to get it up once. If it is interesting enough hopefully your visitors will keep it going for a while. Though as with any forum, old threads will become replaced with new ones so unless the thread is 'special' I'd just leave it.

    This is a very good addon and good for SEO.

    It either encourages people to post in an existing thread it gives you as, an admin, a heads up to merge threads.

    It's better to have one big thread IMO than several small ones on the same topic.
