Hiding locked posts

When I post a question, I usually browse through any topics I know how to help with so I can help others. Gives me something to do and it's nice to "break even" I guess I usually look for topics with 0 replies or 1 reply to see if they haven't been helped yet.

Since I'm usually looking through the beginner/intermediate areas, a lot of those turn out to be people who double-posted, got moved, etc, and it's easy to miss the little lock icon. My question is this: is there, or can there be made, a way to hide locked topics? Or perhaps give them a grey background or something?

Thanks

Well, yes, there are ways. And it sorta starts to get a little complicated ...

For the stuff that has been moved, there should be freaky big text at the top that says "THIS HAS BEEN MOVED!" complete with link to the new thread.

For the others, it usually contains info that is worthwhile but has been locked for some reason. So it seems fine to have it be as is and you just cannot reply.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
