    Discussion Web Wizard

    I used the Discussion Web Wizard to create a message board. I would like the messages posted to expire in 30 days. Ideas as to how to do this and to cause the Table to Contents to regenerate to reflect this? Thanks.

    Off the top of my head - I'd say you'd have to remove them manually.

    Thanks for replying. I was hoping the "expires" property had something to do with it. Thanks again.

    The "expires" property where? (Sorry I'm not at a system with FP right now).

    Re: Discussion Web Wizard

    Apologies for not being clearer. Plunking around in Help files and Google searches I came across setting a metatag and I was hoping I was on the right track. I'm afraid it might referring to cache though. I did successfully remove a post by setting it to -1 though. At least I think I did.

    What I have done is open the Post page in Normal view, right click the subject area, select Form Properties, select Advanced, fill in Name as Expires and Value as 30. This seems to create in html view: <meta http-equiv = "Expires" content = "30">

    Have no idea if I am on the right track though. Or whether I should think about writing VBA code to clean up old messages.

    Thanks again.

    According to Meta tag guide at the same site is quite a useful listing.

    Thanks Leif ... I thought I'd forgotten something I knew once. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
