  • Forums/Threads disappearing after 30 days

    How do I allow all forums and threads to stay visable even if no posts are logged in a 30 days period?

      To update all the forums at once, run this query:

      UPDATE forum SET daysprune=-1;

      After running that query, update the forum counters:

      Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Forum Information

        So when a new forum or thread is created I have to change the defult view age?

        Is that correct? Isn't there a gobal setting for this?

          Yes. There is no global setting for this. It's a per-forum setting. The next version of vB will default to 'View all threads' instead of 30 days.

            So one last clarification...if I creat a new 'forum' then any threads within that forum will have the setting I chose whether it's 30 days or 30 years. Right?

              Yes, that would be the default. However each user can override this setting in their User CP options.

                Thanks Steve.

                It's unbelievable how powerful vBulletin is. I'm always amazed.
