BulkDelete/Archive is a standalone tool that allows you to delete threads or move them to an archive.
You can set the tool script to delete/move threads when they reach a certain age or when the number of messages exceeds a defined maximum count. The tool can be set to run a number of such commands at a time. For example, you can set it to move older threads from your active forum to an archive, and then delete even older threads from the archive.
The main differences between the old webbbs_archive.pl for WebBBS 5.1x and this new tool for Tetra-WebBBS 5.2+:
- The old tool deletes/moves messages, whereas the new tool deletes/moves threads.
- The old tool moves uploaded images but doesn't adjust the image URL of the archived messages. So, image links of archived messages will be broken. The new tool doesn't move uploaded images so the problem of broken image links in archived messages doesn't arise.
To us, the old archive script is obsolete.
