    Is it possible to block certain forums from showing up when clicking on New Posts?

    Just wondering as I just did new posts, and have 11 pages after a day or two of not visiting. I am not interested in the games forum for example, it is possible to block that so it does not show up in my new posts list? I don't think so, but on the off chance we can wanted to check.

    Copy this link and save it before you click it. This section of the following link - "getdaily&exclude=44" sets the search to get today's posts but exclude forum 44 which is games. You can add others, separate by comma. The url you see after you click it is the results only & expires after a time. And this only works with browsers, not TapaTalk.

    Today's posts (last 24 hours):http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sea...e=vBForum_Post

    New posts (since last login): http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sea...new&exclude=44

    Do note this link to save permanantly before you click it is not the same temporary link you see after you click it.

    Right click on link, select "Save link as..." and the link will be saved in your downloads. Then I made a desktop shortcut to it. Works for me!

    I so appreciate getting the new posts without the games posts! Nice Christmas gift!!! Thanks!

    You can fine tune New Posts with commas to remove several topics:
    &exclude=5,10,15,20

    or to be really selective, use:
    &include=7,14,28,36

    This I think is unnecessarily complicated.

    It is. You should see what one has to do to get table tags to function as expected since the upgrade.
    Tables are so helpful in a case like Brittney Wood's with 12 individuals arrested for sex abuse crimes in her family.
    This used to be a simple copy & paste from any spreadsheet. Now it's a copy/paste, copy WS code back to notepad, edit TD rows, copy back to WS.

    Were you able to use HTML tags before for your tables or was it with BB Code?

    I'm not sure. Before July, I could use the WS editor icon for table in advanced mode. It popped up a entry box for a table name first, then allowed the data from a spreadsheet to be pasted. It just worked, that's all I can remember.
    After July, all tables were broken and appeared like this: No code has to be inserted here.
    Here's a pre-upgrade broken post of this table with outdated data: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...5#post10069055

    Any which way I try with the WS editor table tools have been unsuccessful. They act like they're working until you preview and then I see the No code has to be entered here error. But accidently, by copying NamUs entries, I learned that something in that code I grabbed, WS editor likes, as a simple copy/paste. But I can't get that code to originate in the WS editor.

    For example:
    Status Missing
    First name Sharon
    Middle name A.
    Last name Ross
    Nickname/Alias
    Date last seen October 14, 2013 00:00
    Date entered 12/05/2013

    So I studied this & hard coded my table.

    HTH.

    Kate, Can you post a screenshot of the editor you are seeing?

    I'm not sure exactly what will help you, but here's one capture.
    Capture1.jpg
    That is in quick reply mode. Copied cells from Excel, pasted into WS.
    Then I click Go Advanced. and it looks like this now on the preview:
    Capture2.PNG

    I copy that html code to notepad, do a search & replace changing TD to TD TD="class: view_field" (get rid of the fixed width thingy, too.)
    repaste it back to WS Editor, it looks like this.
    Capture3.jpg

    Is that what you were looking for?

    PS: CarlK made one in the UID Forum. I saved it to study TH tags. I'm learning html the hard way.
