Hide a forum from "What's New?"

Can I filter a particular forum from showing up in the 'What's New?' section?

Thanks in advance!

To exclude forums in the What's New button, you may add "&exclude=xx" or "&exclude=xx,yy,zz" (separate the forumids by commas) to the end of the What's New search link in the template.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Thanks for the useful tip. Could you also mention which template needs to be edited? Thanks.

Lynne, how do we get the What's New? search to show up like vB3 which is Recent including said users own posts?

I'd appreciate an answer to this as well, I understand the first part. I just don't see where to add the code to the what's new search link...how do you edit that template?

There was a "selective forum filter" mod in 3.8 that was brilliant. Gave users the option to turn off forums in their usercp. No one has ported it to 4.x yet though

Sorry, yes this would be in the navbar template. You find the search link (in several places):
<a href="search.php?{vb:raw session.sessionurl}do=getnew&amp;contenttype=vBForum_Post">

And then add "&amp;exclude=xx" or "&amp;exclude=xx,yy,zz" (separate the forumids by commas) to the end of the url.

Thanks Lynne! This is great! To confirm, it should look like this (for one forum):

<a href="search.php?{vb:raw session.sessionurl}do=getnew&amp;contenttype=vBForum_Post&amp;exclude=xx">

Edit:
It worked, thanks!

Doesn't the 'include in searches yes-no option' in Forum Manager cover this?

Remember an Administrator sees everything, you need to log into your testUser to see what members see and log out to see what guests see.

EDIT: It's working. I just needed to include &amp;exclude=80 in more places within the template.

I just tried this on mine and it's not working either. Has something changed in the latest update?

This is my line of code in the navbar template:


<a href="search.php?{vb:raw session.sessionurl}do=getnew&amp;contenttype=vBForum_Post&amp;exclude=80">{vb:ra wphrase new_posts_nav}</a>


I found that in 2 different places in that template. Did I miss something?

Thanks,
Jim
