    Excluding Thread Categories

    Is it possible to exclude certain thread categories from showing up on my cyclonefanatic home page?

    For example, I would like to continue to see all threads pertaining to football, basketball etc, but would prefer never to see a thread about wrestling, gymnastics or off topic.

    It would work like an ignore list for users, but deal with thread topics instead.

    Thanks for your time.

    Re: Excluding Thread Categories

    Is this really a concern with people on here?

    Re: Excluding Thread Categories

    You can exclude any forum from the "New Posts". Just bookmark it with an exclude param.

    To not view religion and politics use this:
    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...new&exclude=31

    You can combine them also. So if you want to also ignore the press release archive forum:
    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...&exclude=31,29

    Re: Excluding Thread Categories

    I suppose not, as I can just not open the thread categories I don't care to see. My thinking was that this way certain threads I cared about would appear, where as threads I didn't care about wouldn't take up room.

    Just an idea/suggestion.

    Can we exclude site feedback?

    Now that would be a fun discussion website! But for now I just use the block function around here. And I guess I need to add zimman18 to the list. (Might have to add zimman19 in case the guy changes his username when he gets a year older....)

    This would be exactly what you were asking for:
    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...27,20,14,31,45

    I have a list of forum id numbers somewhere.

    You can also do the reverse and change the "exclude=" for "include=" to only get new posts in certain forums.

    I just make this link my CF link in FF or IE.

    I didn't mean to offend you and your love for thread categories dealing with men in tights. Go jump off a ladder or something we can all enjoy.
