Move post to existing topic - how to hide closed topics from search?

Hi, I am using Discourse as a tracking system. Incoming emails are converted into topics. For some reason the emails always have similar subjects. So they produce a new topic every time, which is fine, but…

I love the feature of moving topics to make the forum pretty. …But the described behavior puts me in a situation where it’s easy to make a mistake. Seems, sometimes all topics in the results are closed :slight_smile: (can’t reproduce now).

Is there any setting to not show closed topics in search results when I move a topic? I’d like to be able to hide topics underlined in red from search (or exclude closed topics from search).

Perhaps unlist the topic?


Thanks for the fast answer and help! In my case the most of closed topics in popup window are topics that just have been moved. I would like they’ve deleted at once, but there is some minimal delay - same day, perhaps, or a couple of minutes… don’t know. Anyway, I will try to unlist them first.

UPD: Yep, unlisting topic is a solution :slight_smile: , you saved my day.
