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.

Damn I don't fully understand this:

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

Do I need to run one of these queries in order to make this work???

You do not. The hack, by default, sets all of the forums as excludable. You only need to run the queries if you want to set everything to "not excludable" or back again.

I certainly do. Thanks for asking, though.

I'd been tossing around this idea in my head for a while now and just happened upon this today. Excellent work, installed and rated!

One thing that I'd like to see is support for VBA on this. The Recent Threads module that I use on my front page still shows all threads that are new (of course). I'd like to make it so that this module also used the settings the users have selected using your mod. Probably not very hard if I pick apart your mod and grab the correct SQL query, but... you probably know how to best go about it. Any chance you'd modify the VBA recent threads module to support this?

Another suggestion. As already mentioned, the usergroup perm allowing someone to exclude forums would be awesome.

At the very least though, a way to edit the forum exclusions the way you have them now. I just edited the database directly right now, but in the future a menu that will quickly allow you to edit which you can exclude or not at once would be awesome.

Do I have to upgrade if using the 3.6.x version (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...php?t=132279)? Or are there no major changes?

If everything is working properly, you don't need to upgrade. However, if you want to get rid of template edits, you may still consider it.
