referring to this issue in 2014: Can content items be automatically unlocked after a certain amount of time?

is there a good solution for unlocking items after a certain period of time with Joomla 3 ?

You will need a plugin for this, as there is no mechanism in Joomla core. Searching in JED, there is one available: "Autocheckin". I haven't tried it, but it should do the job.

  • Thank you, i'll try this or develop my own plugin
