DESCRIPTION

Ever came across large boards with a huge number of sub forums? Couldn't find your info? Wanted to run away from that huge load of stupid threads? This hack is intended to save your users from having such a horrible experience. It provides them with an opportunity to exclude any number of forums from the forums list (as well as from "get new"/"get daily" searches), which still letting them to access those forums directly and search within them, too.

STATISTICS

Products to Install: 1


INTRODUCTION

To enable "can be excluded" in all forums, run this query:
UPDATE PFXforum SET excludable = 1
To disable "can be excluded" in all forums, run this query:
UPDATE PFXforum SET excludable = 0
In both cases, PFX must be replaced with the actual table prefix that you have defined in config.php.
If you have not defined a prefix, remove PFX from the queries.
After you run either one of these queries, you must then open and save any one forum for the forum cache to be updated.

I had a similiar problem, I think, it's been a while

How many forums do you have? I found the default size of the usertextfield in the database, was to small (varchar(255))

So I changed it to mediumtext.

If the forums don't show in the list still, try going into the forum manager, editing a forum, then saving without making changes?

I do have a problem as well though, despite the default entry being YES for excludable (database entry of Default: As defined: 1), it still doesn't check the "Yes" box when I add a forum

Those having problems in 4.2 with the "new posts" in the navbar

Go to your navigation manager

replace entire contents of "Target URL" with

Is there any way to make this mod only hide subforums from the "New Posts" feature, leaving the main forum sections visible?

In your navbar template find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Changing 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 to the sub forum id's you wish to hide.

Thanks, I should have clarified that I meant modify in a way so that users can choose which forum sections to hide on a user by user case.

But your tip is great, I notified my users of it so they can make a "favorites" shortcut in their browser themselves if they want this functionality, simplicity at it's best!
