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.

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified whenever new updates are available.

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

* Marking a modification as installed also helps me know how many people are using my work, giving me extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

I appreciate the support!

Yeah I just checked on my site to verify, and it is working as intended. So I am not sure at all why it would not work on your site, unless there is a conflict with another mod, or the settings are not set right.

No problem. Hard to make something work for everybody. I just found a search template edit that did the job. Even excluded that forum from your Quick Search mod for unanswered threads and etc. It's all good my friend.

Really strange your forum has so many issues with my mods that other users have not reported.

Yea, I know. I have thought the same thing. Have no idea why. Other mods seem to work fine. I don't know if it has something to do with the MySQL version, VBulletin 4.2.3, the fact that my forum is installed in a directory (forum) or what. There must be something though.

Other things seem to work fine. Dragon bytes pic gallery, Photopost classifieds, Dragon Bytes donate system, an OLD thank you mod. Many other things installed and no issues at all with them.

I'm certainly not blaming you. You have some great mods that seem to work for the majority of folks. Several of them work well for me also.

I know, it is just frustrating as a developer when it is not working correctly, and you can not pinpoint the issue.

Can this mod be modded to also exclude a user/sub forum from showing up in "Last Post"?

This is on the main forum page on the right which shows who the last post was by, and the thread title. The RSS feeds will show up there on the front page, but ideally these posts will be hidden unless going into that forum.

Not the way the mod is, it only works on the search function.
