  • How Do I Set Forums to Display All Posts

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

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> Edit Forum -> Default View Age -> Show All Threads

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

    UPDATE forum SET daysprune=-1;

    After running that query, update the forum counters:

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

    Note: To run queries you first need to give yourself permission to run queries in the Admin CP. To do this, edit this section of config.php:

    // ****** USERS WITH QUERY RUNNING PERMISSIONS ******
    // The users specified here will be allowed to run queries from the control panel.
    // See the above entries for more information on the format.
    // Please note that the ability to run queries is quite powerful. You may wish
    // to remove all user IDs from this list for security reasons.
    $canrunqueries = 'x';


    ...with x being your userid number.

      NOTE: You can run queries in the SQL tab in phpMyAdmin, Or to run queries from the Admin CP:

      Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Execute SQL Query -> Manual Query

      Then enter your query in the Manual Query box and click on 'Continue'.
