how do I remove rss icon/ feed from certain forums. I have private forums, although when you click on the rss icon, the rss page is blank, i would like to not have the icon show up on those particular forums.

vBulletin Options / Sorky13 - RSS Feed Links - V1.0.3 / Allow link to be shown for
Use "Selected" or "UnSelected"
vBulletin Options / Sorky13 - RSS Feed Links - V1.0.3 / Selected/UnSelected Forums for the RSS Link (comma separated ForumID list)
2,5,6 <would only do these forums if the previous option was "Selected" or would not do these forums if the previous option was "UnSelected">
