What is Threads Auto Close?
Threads Auto Close is a professional forum management mod, allowing administrators to automatically close threads after X post or X replies.

Close Threads Automatically is the ideal product to eliminate the bumping of older threads.

Threads are not closed in the database, they appear as if they were closed. So, if you deactivate or uninstall the mod, threads appear as open again.

Note: Threads that are marked as closed by this mod via the Auto Close After X Replies setting, can not be reopened due to the fact that they have reached the max replies you set. Only way to re open them is to increase the reply limit or disable that feature.

Any chance you could add an option for closing the thread after X days of inactivity?

Having an fixed number of days doesn't really solve our thread bumping problem, since it could close off active threads that are in use...

Hey if you could add a sorta "bump down" feature to this i may consider buying it.

For example if a thread has so many - likes it closes.

Sorry about the delay in responding, I did not get ant notification about new posts being made. The mod already does that, it auto closes the thread after X days of the last post, not the first post. Looking at the way I wrote the description I see it is confusing and will re word that shortly.

Any chance you could add an option to delete threads after x days in certain forums aswell, or move them to another forum? this would be ideal for us to set up a classified forum..

It may be possible, but kinda goes beyond the scope of the mod, I will look into it when the mod undergoes future feature updates though.

Downloaded and 'tagged'. This could be a very useful addition to our forum. I've asked our other administrators to comment (on our forum) on this MOD. If the consensus is 'yes', I'll install it. Great MOD regardless. Thank you for your work.

I did not even know that one was around when I wrote this one. I have not tried it so I don't know what the exact differences are but this one is supported, where that one is not.
