    Default Only translate new threads

    I would like to suggest a feature to only add translation links to threads newer than a specified time period. If threads are older than the specified period, but have been translated in a given language, provide the translation link.

    As it is, Google and other bots visit every page of the site, unnecessarily translating everything going back 10 years (in my case). This is proving to be very costly.

    At this moment you can do something like this. Not by date but by place. It you have all very old threads in some special place then you can add in vBET configuration the place to ignored - then it will not be translated.

    There should be no problem with adding age filter and do not translate very old threads. We will not check are those already translated or not - this would be too costly for performance (we can think after about adding it later as another option).

    Request accepted

    I suppose there are forums that I have that contain old archive only threads. The only problem is I don't want to turn off translations completely if they already have translations done (then I would just be wasting money). This wouldn't be a problem if i was doing a new installation of vBET.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    We will think about this. Still - please consider that for your users it would be better if it will be disabled completely or translated completely, otherwise it will be confusing - why those are and those not...

    In my case most users aren't going back past 5 years and reading threads - only search engines are

    Still this search engines will bring you new traffic from real users searches. Anyway - as I already wrote we will work on it

    Do not translate thread after a specified time after the date of the creation a thread or the date of the last post in the thread?

    Date of last post will probably work better. If a post is still relevant and being replied to then it should probably be translated.
