How to delete very old topics with 0 replies?

Wouldn't you be better archiving them (even to a separate database) rather than deleting them?

I know this doesn't answer your question because even archiving doesn't have that option (it's just time based regardless of number of replies), but just in case you change your mind further down the track, as you can also unarchive them too. Cheers.

Hi,

How to delete all very old topics (e.g. more than 10 years old) with 0 replies from the whole community? Is there an option for that in the ACP?

Thanks.

There is no such option in the Acp a.f.a.i.k. This will require a custom plugin. Another way, would be to delete them with a sql query, although personally I would not recommend this.

Yeah, this is not a good option, because there are several different things that must be done, such as deleting the topics, deleting the posts, updating counters, etc.

But thanks for confirming that there isn't an out-of-the box solution. I will hire the developer we use to create such plugin!
