  • Changing Default Thread Age Cut Off

    Where is the option in the control panel to change the default thread cutoff age? I've looked through numerous times in the vBulletin Options and can't find it anywhere. Is it somewhere else?

    It's under Thread Display Options in the User CP, but it's not under this in the vB Options - or anywhere for that matter. Am I crazy, stupid or is this not changeable?

    In the Forum Manager set the Default View Age to 'Show All Threads'.

    If you have access to your db you can do all at once with the query:

    UPDATE forum SET daysprune=-1;

    Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

    Mankind is the only creature smart enough to know its own history, and dumb enough to ignore it.

      Something curious: Running that query will set everything to "Show all threads", but it won't actually take hold until you go to the ACP and adjust one of the forums manually. Aftwerwards they all work.
