  • make a forum not show up in get new messages

    Any way to make it so a forum doesn't show up in get new messages?

    You can edit the getnew posts link in the header and add &exclude=X where X is the forumid to exclude.

        If you want multiple forums excluded, put a comma between them, i.e. exclude=1,2,3

          So the alteration would do into the navbar? I couldn't find a reference in header.

          <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="search.php?$session[sessionurl]do=getnew&exclude=15" accesskey="2">$vbphrase[new_posts_nav]</a></td>
          <else />
          <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="search.php?$session[sessionurl]do=getdaily&exclude=15" accesskey="2">$vbphrase[todays_posts]</a></td>
          </if>

              I've got the alteration made as listed above, and it's not excluding that forum. I've verified the forum id.

                Where can I change that? I couldn't find it.

                        Bump. . . . Any thoughts as to why the modification I copy/pasted above didn't work?

                          The exact code you posted is working fine for me.

                          Make sure that the link is changed on your forums. When you click the New Posts link it should be:

                          http://www.yoursite.com/forum/search.php?do=getnew&exclude=X

                            Ok. The problem is that I assumed that if I include a forum, it would take all the child forums into account. I've included all child forums as well as the main forum, and it's working now.


                            Thanks for the assistance
