// In this code, we first include the global.php file to access MyBB's functions and database. We then set the timezone and merge time in seconds (e.g. 24 hours).
// Next, we get the current time and add the merge time to get the time when the threads should be merged. We also define the thread IDs to be merged.
// Finally, we create a task array with the necessary details for the merge_threads.php file to execute the merge operation. We insert the task into the database using MyBB's insert_query() function and output a success message.
// Note: You will need to create a separate PHP file merge_threads.php to actually perform the merge operation. The merge_threads_task.php file just schedules the task.

// This code first retrieves the necessary data (thread IDs to merge, forum ID to move the merged thread to, subject of the merged thread, and reason for the merge) from the merge_threads_task.php scheduled task's data. It then uses MyBB's Moderation class to merge the threads, updates the forum IDs and redirect URLs of the merged threads, logs the merge in the moderation log, and finally redirects the user to the merged thread.

What is missing? i am new with MyBB and not able to make this plugin work on my forum for merging. please help guys
I've cleared up several other threads with this question, can we keep it to the one thread please.
