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.

Not working on 3.8.2. I have ran the query multiple times and it confirms that the rows have been affected.

However, in the UserCP in the menu there is only one choice: "[Reset Exclusion]" and selecting it does nothing.
Hopefully somebody can offer a remedy.

trying to run the query on this hack.

Get the following error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@xxxxxxx.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


any idea's?

Sorry if this has been asked and answered; I did search :-).

Is this mod compatible with vBulletin V4 systems?

I have a ton of forums (unavoidable) and vBulletin appears to expect you to have a focused system since "New Posts" will show you ALL the new postings across ALL the forums!

My users are hoping to narrow things down a bit, and this might be the perfect answer.

Doesn't seem to, i've just tried it on my own board running 4.2.2 and it just throws up a bunch of error messages when you go into general settings.

If anyone could help to fix this mod for 4x i'd be eternally grateful
