  • pruning threads

    i have an RSS bot feed to my forum.. i was hoping to remove some of the old posts for example anything past 20 days old.

    Is the prune threads the best way to do this? select X days from post and the forum and user name?

    will this do a mass delete of that members old posts?

    any issues with doing this?

    You want to delete the actual threads? Or do you want to set a "cut off" for the RSS feed?

      i want to delete the actual thread... actually i did the prune of old threads.. then did an update counters do the foruim counter is correct...

      when i display tghe user,'RSS Bot' the users # of posts did not get updated when i deleted al lthe older posts... is there a setting that does that?

      I see: rebuild statisitics and Update post counts but the update post counts sort of warns not to do it if i "pruned posts"

      can i run this or will it cause a problem?

      basically i want to reset a users post count after i pruned a lot of their posts...

        That counter updates the post counts of all users. It won't cause any problems unless you don't want accurate post counts for some reason - like if you wanted them artificially inflated.
