nice hack....I also wonder if it is possible for someone to make a hack where you can manually choose what threads gets posted under the similar threads section in each post...that would be the best hack ever!

Anything is possible with PHP.

Great addition thought, I've wanted this for a while!

Does this help forum performance by reducing the number of threads scanned?

I also like yahoooh's idea of similar threads from within the same section (or choosing sections).

Well, if similar threads gives a list of 50 topics and with this plugin you only get 5, this will reduce the number of loops.

I was waiting for something like this for almost 3yrs and was about to use Mystics prefix to sort the threads out. I hope they add this to vBulletin core script, as it is needed.

Great job. MOTM

I did not install, but just clicked on it so I can see if this evolves.

Uhm it doesn't work for me!?!? I disabled a bunch of ids and it is still showing ?!?

Unless i got this hack for something else?

I'm looking for a hack that won't show similar threads for certain forums

What does this do exactly?

- another suggestion would be good to be able when you disable example forum id 42 that it would be able to disable the sub categories as well

Thanks!
