  • any way to excludes certain forum from unread threads list?

    I recently changed : Thread/Forum Read Marking Type from Cookie to : Database (automatic forum marking) and I have a few forums that I do not want to show up on the list of threads that are new (such as my politics forums, news feeds and a few more).


    If there a way to get certain forums excluded from the list of new threads?

    thanks in advance.

        Heh, oops. I just go through New Posts in a lump and don't notice the actual forum sometimes. There are probably even more available for 3.x series, give it a search. Good luck.

          thanks as a contributor myself over there - I have no found anything yet - it's easy enough to just into the select statement and change it but a mod would be better in the long run.

            How's this? Selective Forum Filter

            Looks like there are previous versions that work with 3.5-3.7, too.

                You think so? Hmm. I've used it on a variety of forums and all it takes is to click off the forums I don't want to read via my UserCP. Do it once, and never have to bother with it again.
