Archive older messages on another forum

Hi,

I've a Phorum 5.1 installation with more than 6 years of messages. We would like to create an "archive" forum with topics with no new messages within the last one or two years.

Is it possible to do this and can someone help me?

I noticed there's a "Prune Messages" option in admin but I just want to move them to other forum not deleting them.

Thanks,

There's no such mass moving tool available.

What we have seen people do for archiving purposes, is start a fresh forum each year and renaming + moving the old forum to an archive folder. This might or might not fit your purposes. You might do so and move the latest X active subjects back to the new forum to keep them in sight.
