Another mod brought to you by,


Here is a small modification you can use to exclude forums from showing in the New Posts and Today's Posts searches.

It is a simple installation, just import the product XML, ozzmodz_excl_new_posts

You can edit the options under the settings, [OzzModz]: Exclude Forums From New Posts Search Settings

Complete Feature List
  • Option to disable the mod completely.
  • Option to choose which forums, new threads / posts won't show in the New Posts and Today's Posts searches.
  • Option to select which usergroups will still see the posts showing up in the forums you chose to exclude, useful for guests, so search engines can find the posts easily.



Frequently Asked Questions.

Q. Why do I need such a thing, you ask?

A. You may have some forums that you have set up to get RSS feeds from a outside source, so when you click on the New Posts, or the Today's Posts, you would see all them show, not anymore. Or you may have forums that have results from a sporting event, and some members may not have watched it yet. So if they were to view the Activity Stream, they might see the results that another user posted, spoiling their unknown outcome of the event.

Q. How did you come up with this mod?

A. New Joe gave me the idea.

* For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

I appreciate the support!

Perhaps one of these may do what you need.

This would really make this mod perfect. For very large, very diverse forums like ours, users would simply love this feature.

This is a good mod. There is one thing that would make it MUCH better though. I also have your mod "extended search links" installed. I have a forum of that uses RSS to post relevant Ebay ads. When you click on unanswered threads, they take over the list. Any way of adding unanswered threads to the excluded forums?

So you want un answered threads in the forum that the RSS posts to to not show up in the new posts search?

Why not just exclude the forum entirely?

It IS included from New Posts and What's New. They still show up when somebody clicks "Unanswered Threads" in your extended search link mod however.

Extended search links in Navbar. They are already excluded from the New Posts Search.

OK...I did that. Not sure if I am asking for a feature for the excluded forums mod or for the extended search links mod. But I hope you know what I am looking for. Either add "unanswered threads" to the options under the exclude forum mod or ......

change the extended search in quick links mod so that it doesn't pull unanswered threads.

Either way....whichever mod this feature is added to....you just shouldn't get results from excluded forums when you click on "Unanswered Threads".

So confusing...does this make sense?

I just discovered that this is not working on my site. I thought it was because I have another mod that allows users to select forums to exclude in their general settings. I have members telling me that they are still seeing the RSS posts in the forum that I had excluded in this mod. I looked and saw that I had it selected in my own settings through the other mod so they weren't showing up for me.

So, I have "Ebay Listings" excluded globally with this mod. They are not showing in New Activity but do show up when you click on New Posts. Did I misunderstand or is this just an issue with my setup?

Could be a conflict with another mod, or something in the setup.
