Hello, I am trying to move thousands of threads to archive. We have threads going back to 1999 and the forum list is slow to load. I have tried doing this 2 ways, via move topics [does not seem to work] and by selecting all the threads on a given page and moving them 60 at a time. The latter is very time consuming. When I try to move thousands via the "move topics" feature, nothing seems to happen. It will spin for hours and hours and end up moving nothing.

Can someone help? Thanks

Well you have a large board.
So moving topics could take hours..
I would try optimizing your topics and post tables. And or take smaller chunks of topics to move at a time.

Thank you, Ruben! It seems to go much faster when I just do a page of 60 at a time. I moved about 25,000 over the weekend, one page at a time.

I see that your forums are still on UBB.threads 7.5.3

In the "Edit Preferences" menu for your user profile, Set "Total topics to to show per page" to 99, to do 99 at a time.

...

Or edit /scripts/changedisplay.inc to increase the maximum limit from 99 to "500"

FIND THIS: "$PostsPer > 99"
REPLACE WITH: "$PostsPer > 500"

Then set your user profile "Total topics to to show per page" to 500, to do 500 at a time smile

When you're done, revert the script back to 99, and in your user profile.

Will moving these threads to archives speed up our board loading time?

Not really, it'll still be in the same database, and in the same tables, so it'd have little to no impact in my opinion.
