    I can't find the option to set a global life of all threads to 60 days before invisible.

    I'd like my threads / posts to stay around longer

    To update them all at once, run this query (assuming no table prefix is being used):

    UPDATE forum SET daysprune=60;

    After running that query, update the forum counters:

      I remember doing something like this without having to run a query etc. I thought there was simply an option within the control panel as simple as changing a usergroups pm count

      What is the default date at? Maybe I should just keep it.

        I think you will find its something which you have to set on a per-forum basis when you create them.

        There is a 'Use forum default' option in the UserCP but that actually doesnt look for a global value but for the value for that specific forum. So in short, you will need to do steve's query to actually change things on a global scale (and then go through and manually set the ones you want to differ)

          If you want to do each forum one by one:

          Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> Edit Forum -> Default View Age -> 60
