View Full Version : You can now exclude certain forums from view

25-02-12, 16:40
I promised that we would set something up so that members can choose which forums they can and cannot view on NMP.

This will allow you to customise your forum view so that if you know posts in the Health Anxiety forum (for example) can trigger or upset you then you can now exclude this entire forum from view and hence all the posts in there.

Equally you may not be interested in the media interest/research forum or the panic/pause/games forum so again these can be excluded from view.

We hope that this provides an opportunity for everyone to come to NMP and customise their viewing.

Thank You to Alex for implementing this for me.

To customise your view you need to edit some options in your User Control Panel:

Click on Quick Links (along the menu bar at the top) then Edit Options:


Scroll right down to the bottom and there you will see the "Forums to Exclude" part.


Simply click on the forum you want to exclude and save the changes. To select multiple forums to exclude from view click on the first one then press the CRTL key and click on the next one and so on. Don't forget to click on "Save Changes" once you have finished.

Will you be able to inform people as well that my site is up and running if they want to be part of a HA only community as well as NMP?
