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.

When I install the product it says "Importing Product, Please Wait.." but it never installs.

I also have vBSEO installed and it would be great if this mod could be altered to work with vBSEO. I guess it has something to do with the urls.

I am having a problem with this hack - it previously has worked fine, but now, the list of forums to filter in User CP is blank - it only has Reset Exclusions at the top. There are multiple forums set to be excludable, and it was fine in the past Any ideas what might be causing this to happen?

I can still see the forums blocked in my NEW POSTS and LAST 3 DAYS POSTS feature on my site. Is it supposed to do that?

I'd just like to say that this is probably one of the most elegant modifications I've seen in a while. Installed and 5/5!

I importd the product file, but I see no change? I'm under the impression something should appear in my User CP under 'Miscellaneous', but... nothing?

Found out this issue occurs if you have vBSEO installed. At that stage of the processing of the page, vBSEO has added links to the forumcache array, so the check done in the plugin SFF: User Options won't work as it should and will effectively make the forum select box empty, since all forums have been assigned a link by vBSEO

A simple solution is to change the "Direct Category Links" option in your vBSEO Control Panel to "No". Otherwise, you could modify the code of the plugin build the forum list before vBSEO intercepts it, but I have not tried.

Thanx a lot! Quite a few of my users were begging for this.
