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.

There was none. I simply verified that this hack is working on 3.5.4 and repackaged it. There were no changes.

Strange. I was browsing the hack listing and this one had the green "Update" text next to it, so I assumed a newer version had been released.

Plus, it said last update 12 May and I have had it on my board longer than that... I Think.

If it was updated, then the version would be > 1.0.0...

No worries. That will teach me not to read the posts properly and just rely on the "Update" note.

Anthony,

I know you're busy and it was asked previously, however, I just want to vote for the option. It would be great if you could exclude specific forums from this. For example, I have a series of sponsor forums that I don't want people to be able to hide.

Thanks for this great hack!

Can anybody else confirm if it does or does not work for 3.5.4? Thanks.

I'm looking at the code and maybe I'm missing something, but since when did setting a forum's display order to 0 make it not show up at all?
I just install it on my board (3.5.4) and this hack not working too (installing was successfully, but in User CP I can't see an options to exclude forums) :tired:

Added option to set forums as excludable. By default, excludable is 0.
not sure what this means.

Does it mean that I can stop user from excluding a forum (and viewing new posts for that forum) if that forum is set to exludable=1?
