      Description

      In Forums tool, when the user modifies the settings of a forum, the topic settings of the existed topics within that forum will not be modified at the same and keep their existed settings.

      This behavior is desired for some scenarios: for example, an instructor might want to keep some of the topics in a forum to be moderated while making new topics in the same forum not moderated.

      However, settings like "Mark All Message as Read Automatically" should be applied to all topics within the forum after the modification. Otherwise, it would be very inconvenient for the user to modify the settings of all topics in the same forum at the same time.

      I would suggest adding an option when the user is modifying the forum settings to ask the user whether he/she wants to apply the modification to all existed topics in the forum.
