Default HOW TO: Ignore the Off Topic forum

This site is hands down the best source of information for DIY car audio enthusiasts.

Each time I visit this forum, I click the "New Posts" link to view all of the new posts since my last visit. Unfortunately, it has become increasingly difficult to keep up due to high amount of posts in the Off Topic forum. It's frustrating to have to sift through all those threads every time I visit just to stay on top of relevant discussion about mobile audio.

No disrespect intended to those of you who post in OT. I know that a lot of members enjoy that forum. However, I'm here solely for car audio information and don't have time to read about your sex lives or bowel movements. In fact, I recently had to take a "break" from this forum because it was becoming too time-consuming to stay on top of things.

Anyhow, I did some research and found that specific forums can be excluded from the New Posts search by manipulating the URL. The following link will search for new posts since your last visit except for those in OT. Simply bookmark this link and use it instead of clicking on "New Posts".

http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/...tnew&exclude=6

I hope that this helps others to continue visiting and contributing to this site while still keeping their sanity like it has done for me

You are my hero! Although I like OT and post in it sometimes at home ON A DIAL UP, sifting thru pages gets time consuming. Sunday night will be sooo much more peasureable now!

Thank You!

Cool, now we need one to also ignore the for sale section so it doesn't suck our wallets dry.

Maybe one day, enough lemmings will fill the trench, and people can cross over to the promised Nirvana.-some wiseguy.

You can exclude as many forums as you want by appending the forum IDs to the exclude parameter, delimited by commas.

For example, to exclude OT, For Sale, Feedback, and Hot Deals:

Default Re: HOW TO: Ignore the Off Topic forum

There is another approach one can use. If your browser is Firefox you can use the Greasemonkey add-in along with Javascript to ignore forums as well.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748/

I modified Sivan's "vBulletin On-Topic" script by changing one line to make it ignore "Classifieds", "Off Topic", and the Increasingly Stupid Questions forum. Obviously, this approach is only useful to someone who is comfortable with Greasemonkey, or willing to learn.

The original script is here. The line to change is in bold.

Quote:
// ==UserScript==
// @name vBulletin On-Topic
// @namespace http://userscripts.org/Sivan
// @description vBulletin: Hides selected forums from search results
// ==/UserScript==

// Add comma-delimited quoted names of forums to hide, e.g. "Forum1", "Forum2"
var HIDDEN_FORUMS = new Array("Off-Topic");

var forumNamePredicates = ".= '" + HIDDEN_FORUMS.join("' or .= '") + "'";
var xpathExpression = "id('threadslist')/tbody/tr[td/a[" + forumNamePredicates + "]]";
var rows = document.evaluate(xpathExpression, document, null, XPathResult.UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE, null);

for(var i = 0; i < rows.snapshotLength; i++) {
var row = rows.snapshotItem(i);
row.style.display = "none";
}
My edited line is:

Quote:
var HIDDEN_FORUMS = new Array("Off Topic" , "The \"No Question is Dumb\" forum" , "Classifieds");
All that is important to note is that the spelling of "Off topic" was changed and it was necessary to to escape the quotes in the name of the "I will not search or read" forum.
