#4458 accepted defect

Intentionally/permanently archived forum threads should return a 410 status

Reported by: jonoaldersonwp Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: Support Forums Keywords: seo analytics


When a forum thread is intentionally, permanently archived as a result of editorial/quality/spam decisions (e.g., see https://wordpress.org/support/topic/great-theme-alx/), the page should return a 410 HTTP status rather than a 404 status.
