    In vb it used to be forums/search.php?do=getnew&exclude=1,2,3
    Where 1,2,3 are the forum ids to exclude.

    Is this possible in XF?

    Thanks chaps, but I'm needing users to be able to create their own searches whenever they like simply by changing the forum ids in the URL.

    XenForo doesn't exclude URLs, but you can create URLs with node IDs to include. You would need an add-on to accomplish exclusion.

    Just for clarification, does unchecking the box to include threads in New Posts remove the node's threads from all search results or just the New Posts results? What I'm after is a way to exclude a forum from all of the main (mass) search results, yet, still maintain a search feature while browsing that forum.

    It relates only to "find new" activities. Unrelated to search.

    How can I do this? I want to create a link in the navbar that will search only 4 particular forums for new posts? Thanks. :)
