I looked at the mysql db table source code for the jforum_posts table and realize that id column is mediumint(8) auto_increment.
What happen after we reach that limit?
Please correct me if I am wrong. Auto_increment id can not reuse id that is deleted thereafter, I know you can set the column to restart at a specified number but that doesn't really solve the problem either.
There might be case where certain post you want to keep. I am just a bit concern about this issue, I was wondering how other people do it and what is being done for Jforum.
