Imported topics don't respect "Auto-close topic" setting

(Stefano Maffulli) #1

I just migrated a quite large forum from mybb into Discourse: what a relief, the migration went very well, users are very happy, traffic and engagement is already visibly better. The one little issue I have noticed is the imported topics don’t respect the category’s “Auto-close” time: while for the topics that were created ‘natively’ on Discourse there is the visible warning This topic will close a month after the last reply. for the imported topics that warning is not there. It would be great if the old content could be put to bed instead of resurfacing at any time

Is there way to force old imported topics to follow the same Auto-close setting as newly created topics?
