What this does
This will allow you as the admin to set a time limit till a thread is considered expired or in otherwords closed. If the thread happens to be expired, the user will see a error message. But a staff member (ie, mod, sup-mod, and admin) can unexpire the thread by posting in it, then the counter will start over again. (if you enable this in the admincp) This will prevent those anoyying thread digger members we all seem to dislike.

Nice one. I noticed your installer don't support TABLE_PREFIX on the ALTER statement for the forum table.

Could this be modified so you can set threads to close either after X days or X replies? (User chooses if they want to time via days or # of replies)

Very nifty, my forums get very inactive when stargate atlantis goes off TV between seasons, and then out-dated threads are re-posted on several months later, when it is no longer relevant.

* clicks install *

Under the forum manager. See Here. The same place where you would edit the forum title.

hm, sorry i missed that.

it'd be nice if there was a way to turn it on or off globally though- adding the option for every forum is a bit of a pain.

This Hack can be implemented without File Edits in RC1 by using Hooks forumadmin_add_default and forumadmin_edit_from, so you might want to update it
