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.

I am running this on vBulletin 4 and it has been working fine but I have a few issues

1) I added a new forum and its not being displayed in the list to be able to block it. How do I get the new forum to show?

2) People are upset they are seeing results in excluded forums in their searches, how do I get this to work with all searches?

Thank you for your help!

Eh, it doesn't work with vB4, it needs to be rewritten for it. Please, rewrite it for vB4.

I am using the SocialForums mod, and I also use the selective forum filter mod
my problem is that I can't get the social forums to show up in the list of forums to be excluded. I have run the back end php query that is supposed to make all your forums be excludable, and it still didn't affect the social forums. this was the query:

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.


I have no table prefix for my tables, so i removed the PFX and ran it plain. Does the social forums mod add any special table prefix to the tables it creates?

Any other ideas as to why they won't show up and allow themselves to be excluded? The groups are a combination of public and private groups.

Actually, I went to this thread again, and then I read the first post where it had the query to run if you have more than 64 forums - I ran that, and now it works! All boards show up and are excludable! Woohoo!

Did this ever get re-written for vB4? I have done a search but can not see the vB4 version.
