    Some members may get annoyed by the constant NZB Forum post bumps or other forum's posts showing up on the new posts list so here's how you can exclude a forum from this list.

    Just add &exclude=X to the end of the newposts url (https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/search-getnew/)
    Where X is a list fo ForumIDs (seperated by commas) to exclude.

    Example:
    Code:
    http://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/search-getnew/?exclude=80,106,107,108,120
    This will block the NZB forum's posts from showing on the new posts list.

    Enjoy...

    Nice, thanks

    Can we have that as a quicklink, or is it too much of a personal preference to be part of the main board features?

    You can simply store it as a Bookmark/Favorite in your browser.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    rossco, I just don't know how to use the info you gave. I mean do I insert an x into the/a url every time?

    No, here's an example URL that i put in the first post:
    https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/searc...06,107,108,120

    You can just edit the numbers on the end of that URL to the forum IDs that you want to exclude.

    Code:

    You can see it all in a code box.
