How to hide Forums


Best Answer Steve , 24 April 2013 - 03:20 PM

Unless I've missed it, it looks like we lost the ability to hide forums from the "new post" search.  The minus sign just collapses the section on the forum screen (what the OP was asking for, I think), but I'm sure I'm not alone in going straight to a "new posts" bookmark and never seeing that forum list.  The old software gave me a multi-selectable list that let me completely get rid of the Dish forums.

 

Try going to "View New Content" and click on the "Filter By Forum" link on the bottom left. You can highlight the forums you want to view, and they're remembered, as far as I can tell.

I've not been able to locate the - field in Safari on my iPad using the DBSTalk Default theme. Minor irritation, just means a bit more scrolling.

Yes, only appears when you hover over the area.  Kind of hard to hover a finger. :)  (But yeah, sure, the things can track your eye movement, just can tell where you finger is hovering. :))

CLUB MEMBERS now can HIDE FORUMS from within their USER SETTING.  Click on your name, select My Settings, and you will see Remove Forums on the bottom left menu.  CLick the ones to hide and save. (Use CTRL and click to select more than one.  Do the same thing to unhide ones to want back.) 

 

Note...This is a test install at this time as it was made for ver 3.2 of the site and we are on 3.4.4.  So, not sure how it will all work so no promises it will stay around. :)

I do not this this hook made for that issue.  It could be that we upgraded Apache and PHP on the server that that made for the app issues.  

 

Tried to warn people you when you start to do things to the site that people just "must have" things could break.  Now the app no longer works.  Oh how wonderful.

if the app is forumrunner based it will be broken no matter what.

starting many versions ago around 3.4.0 series and onwards.

when asked about it forumrunner wanted access to my board and files to make their app work. I refused.

Not quite because the Forumrunner apps worked fairly well with a feww miner setting adjustments on the use side.

It's not that big  of deal I prefer using a browser on the iPad and the browser isn't bad on the Droid so I'll get by.

ah, when you mentioned a few changes I thought maybe you knew how to fix issue many owners have been complaining about.

what you see on the front end is not indicative of what many board owners have been complaining about since Nov 2012.

some info here

got many ignored tickets on my end too after I refused them access to my database and files.

This is really off topic now.  Just an FYI, they reached out to me and will have some new beta of it to try soon.
