Eliminate forums from "What's New?" or make forum "autoread"

    I am using the feed reader to bring in some feeds to the forum. However I don't want them to show as unread for my users.

    So I want to eliminate those forums from the whats new or even better mark those posts as read by everyone.

    Anyone got any good ideas?

    You will likely need to edit the code to exclude specific forums from the feed.

    You can always try posting in the dev forum for some help on how to do that or ask in the add-ons request forum.

    Good idea.
    Good idea.
    Except ... maybe a good solution would just to have less Feed Reader Posts ?
    Depends on what you are trying to accomplish.

    Yes they do: i really miss the option to exclude the RSS Feed Reader posts in the latests posts/activity.

    On a less active site, too much Feed Reader Posts in What's New would look bad, IMO.

    It looks horrible on my site which is pulling in alot of feeds that are relevant to our guilds game (world of warcraft)

    I gave up since I am not getting any help so I removed all my feeds as they are useless in this software without the possiblity to eliminate them from whats new and unread.

    I wrote my own module for xenporta and use that to show rss feeds.

    I can probably tidy it up a bit and upload it. Will take a look at it in the weekend.

    Really? So you can exclude a forum from search results / what's new?

    Yes.

    The test forum here no longer appears in What's New.

    Ah - I think we're at crossed purposes - I was hoping for an end-user option to allow people to individually exclude whatever forums they want from the results.

    Oh well ... wait and see eh? :)

    Cheers,
    Shaun :D
