XF 2.2 Exclude articles from unanswered thread list



I have an articles forum. But when I publish threads on it, they appear in "Unanswered threads" list

'Articles' are not 'questions', so they usually don´t have 'answers'

Is there an easy way to exclude articles from unanswered thread list?

There is nothing built in which will do that.

It would require custom development to do it properly.

You could edit the find_threads_list and use some conditional code to remove array entries which match a specific node ID, but the results would likely be less than desirable and cause issues with page totals.

You can install this widget and:
Choose "Threads do not have reply"
Then choose the forums you want (excluding article forums)
Create a full page widget, place it in a page
Edit the link in nav to go to the new page

Or, use a a sidebar widget, etc.

This won't work if you have articles mixed with other thread types in the same forum.
