    Opt out of forums for Get New Posts

    Any chance of getting this implemented so when we do a new posts search we can opt out of the New members forum or others we don't care to view? It really would cut down on the number of posts to scan through.

    Opt-Out Forums from Get New/Get Daily - Page 20 - vBulletin.org Forum

    Seems it works fine with 3.8.4

    What i have found by clicking the new member forums in the new posts,is that many of the newbies introduce themselves and usually have a question. maybe for another thread, but i think it is important to welcome them and help them out so that they feel like that the people here are friendly and helpful ??
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    I usually check the new members often but to see the new posts over a day it gets overwhelming. Since the limit of displayed threads includes the new forum and there is a limit on how many can be displayed (200 I think it is) then you loose content that you are trying to follow because so many people respond to new members threads.

    Unfortunately, there are several issues with this mod. The main one is that it does not work with v4 of vBulletin which we will be going to soon, but is also an unsupported mod that makes changes to the database and requires manual edits to the template which means every time we install a new version we have to make the manual edits.

    Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits
