Topics are now locked after 30 days

  • Staff

    Hi All,
    I have installed a new archiver plugin in this forum which auto-locks topics after 30 days of inactivity. I have excluded some of the categories like Announcements and App wish list. If you see any strange behavior, please let me know.

    It seems this plugin is causing some login issues, I have disabled this for now to investigate what is happening.


  • I'm not a fan of this, sorry. Leads to duplicate threads and there's plenty of older threads that can have value added to them as the community grows.

    @marcusquinn I had to disable it after 2 days because it was causing login issues.

    Let me see if I can get it to unlock all the posts 🙂

    As a heads up, if this forum goes down now and then, it's because I have to restart the forum to activate this archiver plugin (and try to see if it has some option to unlock all the posts)

    Alright, I had to go the database and reset the lock state of all the posts 😕 Unfortunately, this means I had to reset genuinely locked posts as well. But I think we can live with that.

    For future reference, I had to run this in the MongoDB shell:

        x = db.getCollection('objects')
        x.updateMany({ _key: { $regex: /^topic:\d+/ } }, { $set: { locked: 0 } })
    

    On a side note, NodeBB code is so well done 🙂
