An addition to the Auto Lock Old Topics mod, this mod adds a Scheduled Task to check for topics that have not been replied to in a while, and automatically removes them.

You can change it on a per-board setting, so different boards have different amounts of time if you like, and you can specify never to remove old posts.

By default the task will only select locked topics allowing the admin to use this mod as an add-on to the Auto Lock mod by first locking the topics and then moving topics to the recycle bin. An option is provided to let the mod purge all topics and not just locked topics.

You can also have it optionally ignore or remove sticky topics.

Posts are purged in this manner:
  • They do go to the recycle bin, allowing you to undo accidentally purged topics
  • Do NOT get removed from member post counts
All extra information attached to the old topics that haven't been replied to is also removed - polls, calendar entries, log of what has been read etc. so on forums that don't need to archive posts this would be an excellent way of keeping space managed.
