move topics to another forum after x days

Post by doshidh »

Hello,

I was wondering how I would go about automating the task of moving all topics created x days old to a different forum and keeping them active, as opposed to pruning/deleting.

I am using phpBB 3.0.4 with a modified proglass theme. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dev

You would need to look for a MOD to do this, as by default phpBB3 does not have this function. When phpbb.com is back online you can search the MOD database or ask in the MOD Forums.

Thanks for the reply.

Is there a variable with the topic start date, or is there some way I can retrieve this value from a database? I would be able to implement this myself if I knew where to get this value.

Thanks in advance,
Dev
