Archive legacy bbpress.org posts

  • I think you should seriously consider archiving the bulk of the legacy bbPress posts, maybe moving them to a separate forum like archive.bbpress.org.

    It’s very troublesome when I’m trying to use Google or the native search to find posts with similar queries as mine, and I end up with mostly 2-4 year old posts relating to the old and abandoned standalone bbPress.

    Too late now, and lots of the old topics are still relevant, even if not exact.

    I can understand why you’ve chosen to preserve the old posts, but I agree with the OP that it makes finding relevant help with issues extremely difficult.

    Perhaps a happy¬†compromise¬†could be reached, such as an option that makes the forum search exclude results dated prior to the release of 2.0. Or even a “The information in this thread may be outdated” warning message to reduce the confusion of new users.

    Excluding older threads in the search would definitely be a very acceptable compromise.

    Excluding posts from search before a certain date seems like a good idea. I’ll get it done this week.

    Excellent, many thanks. And by the way, I hope you agree that part of the search should be opt-out, not -in. Only the old-timers around here are gonna want to dig further back into the archives.
