IMO tasks should be distributed without plugin files. And tasks can already be turned off independently BTW.

Nice either way.

I know about it. I think it is better to handle this over settings which will be added in future (at least add settings for custom time interval). I need to get info howt PMs work in MyBB.
I have 3 questions:
1) Messages in trash bin - are they delete automatically after 30 days? (I am not sure, but mybb does it automatically)
2) Are messages in sent box affected too?
3) What about drafts? Delete them after 60 days automatically? I am not sure if it is possible.

1) Not that I am aware of.
2) With your code, yes they are. Sent items have a value of 2 for the folder column.
3) Drafts have a value of 3 for the folder column.

Regarding the optimize db file: It is going to be a killer to do on large forums. It could easily hang on the user. This is a rare exception where I'd say to break the queries up instead of doing them as one query. Also, it won't work if the table type is Innodb ( while that is not default, it is something that is recommended for large forums. )

Thanks for info. I will add pruning for drafts and items in trash bin is next version.

About DB file - OK, I will look and maybe just add optimization for PMs table, which will be enough.


EDIT: Optimize DB task is changed - optimizes only PM, task and tasklog tables - less resources hungry. I will add support for Innodb

I have one suggestion for you Eldenroot

	$query = $db->simple_select('tasks', 'tid', "file='task_prunepms'", array('limit' => '1'));
    if($db->num_rows($query) == 0)
	{
                require_once MYBB_ROOT."/inc/functions_task.php";
		$new_task = array(
			"title" => "Prune old PMs",
			"description" => "Checks for old PMs and deletes them. /Inbox&Sent&Trash folders/",
			"file" => "task_prunepms",
			"minute" => '1',
			"hour" => '0',
			"day" => '*',
			"month" => '*',
			"weekday" => '*',
			"enabled" => '1',
			"logging" => '1',
		);

			$new_task['nextrun'] = fetch_next_run($new_task);
			$tid = $db->insert_query("tasks", $new_task);

			$cache->update_tasks();
			run_task($tid);
	}

one question less and less code

Thanks for good plugin


my suggestion:
1- add text on PMs page to warn users about automatically delete.
2- add setting to ignore by user id and group id.
