This plugin will allow users to disallow forum sections from showing up if they click "View New Posts", "View Today's Posts" or search a users threads. The selection will be in UserCP under the latest threads and above the Personal Notepad.

To activate, you must upload two files.


Then simply activate via AdminCP > Configuration > Plugins

There are no other Admin Settings. The rest of the work will be up to the User via UserCP.

The plugin creates another column in the 'users' table. It is called 'unforums'. This will store the ForumID's (FID) that the user does not wish to view. The value can be NULL.


To alter preferences, a user must simply go to UserCP and select the forums from a list of which they would not like to view. You can CTRL + Click to select multiple forums. The only forums in the list are those that they originally have access to. If they do not have access to a forum, they will not be able to see it.

When you deactive the plugin, it will DROP the 'unforums' column and user preferences for the plugin will be lost. A simple activation will restore the column.
