  • Scheduled Tasks question

    I was looking at the admin panel the other day, and I do have a question.

    Would it be possible to have a forum open and close/disappear, for set times, by use of the Task Manager?

    Has anyone done this, simple, hard?

    Thank you.

    It's possible but you would have to write a custom script to do this. Also the Scheduled Tasks are triggered by code in the footer template, so someone would need to visit the forums (even with them turned off) to trigger this task.

      Ah..hmm, probably beyond my grasp, but I guess I'll have to look into it. Also, having to need someone visit the board to trigger it wouldn't be a problem, as if no one were visiting during the times, then it wouldn't make a difference whether or not the forum were open.
