Great idea

Much easier then editing the templates to adapt to it. Now I dont need to worry about adding a new skin either

Thanks

If you use RSS feeds you will notice that when you go to active topics or todays posts that the RSS feeds are listed with the new threads, newly replied to threads, and active topics. Most users don't want to know about new RSS feeds and are more interested in new user based activity so this resolves that issue. If you pull RSS feeds onto your site then I would highly recommend using this mod.

Works good on VB 3.7 with one exception. I'm not sure if it's because I'm using a custom skin with a member panel instead of the standard vb skin or what.

I used to use "search.php?do=getnew&exclude=1,2,3,4,"

I like your method much better, cause I don't have to edit the template

The problem I'm running into is that the Total count of unread messages is still including the excluded posts. See photo below


Where it says "You Have X Unread Posts" it is including the excluded posts, when I click on "Unread Posts" it does properly exclude the forums listed in the plugin.

My question is: How can I get that number to accurately match the true # of Unread posts when factoring in the "excluded" posts??

Thanks,
Jason

Could this code be edited to instead of excluding a forum, it excludes a member - their topics - from showing up in the results?
I have a gadgets section on my forum where gadget feeds are sent from my own gadget website but there are other posts made in there as well from users.
