Addons / Re: [ADDON][beta] Topic Prefix
Last post by radu81 -
Spuds, don't hate me, but I found another one ::)
To replicate it:
- go to skodaclub.it/index.php?board=19.0
- choose the first prefix called "motore"
- you will see 3 pages of results and that should be correct
- click on page 2, you will get a page without topics, and the total pages are now 8 (8 pages of results are probably all topics from all boards with that prefix)

I suppose you could use a  forum maintenance task, "remove old posts"

Set the time to 1 day,  Choose "Any sort of topic", and un check the select all and just select just the board you are interested in. Be very cautious that you just have that single board checked and no other check marks are on .... That should wack the stack down.

This one I was thinking last night when I went through things over there, and might be the best option for me.


The other way is whats already been suggested.,  enable the quick moderation check boxes, set your topics per page as high as you can and use the check all and remove actions while viewing that boards topic list.

Exactly what I meant by "hack'n'slash'. No big red button to blowup all of it at once, but moving them down in batches ...

Of course having a backup should things not go right is always smart.

Never heard of those? Can we eat it?

:D

Thanks! I'll manage from here ...

It's getting better with every update, I confirm that the problem with page numbers and topics from other boards is now solved. 8)

For the other error I am almost sure it worked on the previous version. Thanks again for your help.
I almost think I'm spinning my wheels LOL, glad you think its getting better.  Here is a version that should fix the removing / editing of prefixes from the post page.

I think I found another one, If I have a topic with a prefix, and I edit the first post choosing "no prefix" and save, I still see the old prefix applied.
Just did this on my local and the prefix was removed as expected :(
On the same topic if I try to change the prefix editing the first post I get an error "The database value you're trying to insert does not exist: new_prefix". In elkarte log I see:
Type of error: Critical
The database value you're trying to insert does not exist: new_prefix
Function: runQuery
File: /sources/subs/TopicPrefixTcCRUD.class.php
Line: 84

IIRC this was working on the previous version, but I'm not 100% sure.
That error I also see  :'(

It's a protective feature so admins do not accidentally delete an entire board of topics and posts. You can move all topics elsewhere, then delete the board.
  
I do understand that this is security feature, but was just wondering if it would be possible to kill all the flies with one blow.

Go to ACP, Maintenance, , Forum Maintenance, Topics. Here you can move all topics in a board to another board. Or....you can move them individually in the topics themselves.
  
But I want to delete those topics/posts as well ... apparently one need to hack'n'slash ...

Thanks anyway for your reply!
 
 You can batch delete as well.
