Hello, I was hoping for a way to bulk-set retroactive topic timers on specific categories ala this thread. The solution suggested consuming the API or messing with the rails database, but I wasn’t able to find a way to do this after a (admittedly brief) search. Can someone offer guidance?
Following the suggestion in the topic you linked to, you’d need to know how to do the databse queries to get the topic IDs, then reverse engineer the topic timer API to figure out how to make needed requests.
For how to do the database queries, go through this topic for ideas What cool data explorer queries have you come up with?
And for reverse engineering the Discourse API, see this topic How to reverse engineer the Discourse API
