    Default "New Posts" search filter

    Hi

    Is there a 'filter' or some such on the site that you can use to filter out some of the forums when you hit the 'new posts' link?

    These jokes threads are killing me....no seriously, there killing me .

    cheers

    Short answer no. It has been looked into and it is not an option available at this time.

    Sorry
    Have a nice day - Cheers

    Others leave me disappointed

    I hate the jokes. Its just as annoying as the whole Drivel saga. Put them in the Drivel forum so they don't show up.....for the love of doG..

    thanks groggy

    I was actually winding the jokes guys up a bit.

    I was hoping for a more 'generic' filter, you know, one to filter out the boat guys, those pesky girls, pen people and them smelly intarsias .

    Default While we're on the subject...

    My pet hate with the "new items" search is that it displays the time & date of latest update, but not the date the thread was started.

    I really hate it when I see an interesting item for sale, open the thread, then find out it was posted 18 months ago, and someone just added a question or comment.

    I would be really nice if you could either see both dates, or select your preference and have that one displayed.

    Groggy, you suggested using the IGNORE feature, but can you ignore a forum? I thought this feature was only to ignore users.

    I've got no reason to ignore a specific user, I just get irritated by post after post of drivel under the heading of Woodies Jokes.

    Oh if I am grumpy,
    This is what I do,
    I stomp around the house,
    You do it too!
    Show that you're grumpy,
    Stomp along with me,
    We're grumpy for all to see.
    We're grumpy, yeah we're grumpy,
    We're grumpy you and me.

    That is good, I write the jokes for a mob of woodworkers to post on a wood forum.

    But they still come up in the "New Post" search, it's just that the actual post is ignored within a thread.

    Obvious solution is to make the jokes forum a subforum in Nothing to do with woodwork and make it password accessible same as the drivel forum.

    Then those that want them can see them, those that don't don't and everyone will be happy.

    No only the jokes and maybe the pen turning forum, for they are just drivel.

    I wouldn't have thought the joke section would cause that much problem. Looking at the joke forum I see that 19 jokes have been posted in 4 days and these jokes generated 39 replies which make the total posts up to 58 in all. Over a period of 4 days, if we count a day as 8 hours, that represents 1.8 posts in an hour on average. I know it doesn't work out like that but even so if there was 5 or 6 posts in any one given hour from the joke forum, is it really that difficult to pass over them to the post you are looking for.

    I guess we all have to do that because we all have differing ideas and facets to our woodworking interests and there are a lot of threads that we have to skip over in the process of looking at the ones we are interested in.
