  • Stop 1 particular forum from showing up in the "New Posts" search

    Is this possible?

    If so, is there a way to do it without disabling searches? (I have added an RSS feed via hack, but all the new news posts show up in "New Posts", and while they are new posts I'd rather not have them displayed.)

    I assumed disabling searches would remedy the situation, but is there another way?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    You can exclude a forum from searches by setting this option:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> Edit Forum -> Index New Posts in Search Engine

    You may need to rebuild your search index afterwards:

    Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Search Index

      You could alter your "New Posts" link to include "&exclude=XX" where XX is the forumid of the forum you wish to ignore.

        Is there a switch to embed multiple "exclude" forum IDs in this URL?

          From this thread, you can separate multiple forumids with commas in the URL.
