Does the auto-close option only take a positive integer for the number of hours? This makes sense, but there’s a (jobs) category in which I hope people will only be able to post topics in, with no replies. I tried inputting 0 to no avail.
This is not supported at the current time.
I like to implement the support for 0 hours setting. Added to my list with low priority.
We tried an “auto-close in 1 hour” category as a type of “no moderation queue category” work-around for a while. IIRC it worked fairly well (HAWK may remember better) but a zero-hour would have eliminated the rare few that got replies. The category didn’t work for us (an unrelated reason) but instant-close could be good for those forums that need it.
It is possible to set it for minutes rather than hours using .n values
