    Is there a way to block a forum?

    Is there any way to block certain forms from appearing on my recent threads list? Or a maybe a way that I can choose only my favorite forums to appear?

    I'd like to not have 8 threads complaining about MBB crowding out the threads I'm interested in.

    Just click on the forums you want to view. You know what they are. I've never understood people who complain about the front page being crowded with threads they aren't interested in. So what? Other people are.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Sadly .. no. Or at least not that I've found.

    Good news for you is that it's pretty much the same people starting them or involved. Figure that part out, put them on your ignore list and you're about 80% the way there.

    I just have bookmarks set to the 4 forums I prefer to read. Crazy enough, today I am wasting some time and happened to take a look at the forum list and saw this thread.

    Re: Is there a way to block a forum?

    It's pretty easy actually. Just stick the forum id number on the end of this link. You can add multiple id's by comma separating them.

    So to see all new posts, except ones in the MBB forum use this link. You need to copy the link. If you click on it and try to use that link it won't work later.

    You could do that with 1 link also. Just change the param to an include and put the id of the 4 forums you want.

    Something like this:
