Very nice.

Would definately buy it if one could also filter by topic start date.
For instance, I have a specific subforum where a topic is started every monday morning.
And I would like to have those topics closed one week later (favorably on midnight monday morning).

If you don't need to filter by last post concurrently. I can give you an edit to temporarily assign the "last post" filter as a "start post date" filter. Otherwise, I've noted this and it will be included in the next update.

Hi. @Mike John

I want to use this as alternative to archiving system (because i do no want to loose the search capability in archived topics).

If I apply your plugin and it has to lock a lot of topics for the first time (>10000) could that be a problem? or the task will work in batches?

It batches them into 25 topics at a time and the task runs every 30 mins assuming you've got board activity all the time or your running your tasks via cron. So it will take several days to work through 10,000 topics. If you need it, I can give instructions to temporarily increase that limit if your server can handle it.

Is it possible to hide lock time?

Is it possible to only allow a certain member to post/unlock after being locked?

From the post reply that's added? If so, remove the "%lock_time%" quick tag from the post template and it won't add a lock time.

This plugin only uses the internal lock topic option, so any work around for posting in locked topics will need to be done within IPB4 itself. I believe there is a group permission to allow certain member groups to post in locked topics still.

I just bought this plugin but the auto lock function is not working!

Have you setup your plugin settings? Has the auto lock topic ran yet? See acp > system tab > advanced configuration > view tasks > look for auto lock topics entry.

Hi, I've just installed this but I don't see the option to auto lock when creating a topic. Can you help please

On top of that the plug in has auto locked 100's of dead topics  without me enabling any filters

This doesn't provide an auto lock setting per topic. If you check the plugin settings, you select the filters and which forums and it mass locks topics for you in the background using the filters you selected.

Hi @Mike John

Your plugin Auto Lock Topic is exactly for what I'm looking.
But I would like to be able to lock a topic if no message was posted during X minutes instead of day.

Can you make me a custom modifiation for add/edit this option if it is not too much complicated for you ?

I would eternally be grateful to you for it !

Thank you advance

I just bought this and overlooked that I cannot automatically close a thread after "30" days from the start date.
Any chance of you assisting me with a temporary edit please?
