This hack is intended to save your users from having such a horrible experience.

Thx for the quick reply, scottct1!

Did you have to un- and reinstall vbseo like some others?

And did you notice some higher serverload or errors?

Best regards,
Silmarillion

Is this necessary to get the prodct run? All i have to do is running "UPDATE forum SET excludable = 1" as a query? Before or after installing?

Run this after the product is installed. Otherwise there will be no forums in the "exclude forums" list.

Thx, PV.

One Question: we also use the addon Opt-Out Forums from Get New/Get Daily as German-Version by your co-author Andreas. Unfortunately, the two great addons doesn't work together correct. Is there a solution?

Best regards,
Silmarillion

I've just installed a new subforum. Unfortunately it is not possible to choose the forum. I've run the query again ("UPDATE forum SET excludable = 1"). With no success. What should I do?

Best regards,
Silmarillion

Is this applicable to user-specific search?

User-specific search are as follows:
Find all threads started by username - search.php?do=finduser&u=1&starteronly=1
Find all post by username - search.php?do=finduser&u=1

I have the same problem
I have 4 Vbulletin forums and 2 works well, but in other 2 I have that problem. All are the same version of VB.
I think it may be a mod, but I compared the mods and find no differences
