    Hi Shewie.

    Forum software seems to have pretty good tweak ability.

    Is it possible for members to personalise which forum topics they can see on 'New Posts' ?

    just a thought....

    I didn't realise anybody used the New Posts button :)

    I think I understand your request but I can't think how that would work, leave it with me

    Is there a category you particularly don't want to see? i.e Kitchen, Trip Reports etc?

    :rolleyes:Indeed Ed.:p

    New(or Latest) Posts is the only way I access any forum - I might miss something! :confused::D

    Nah - I'm thinking for instance that some might not want to see For Sale posts.
    Or being a backpacking luddite, personally I wouldn't want/need to have New Posts for the tech stuff flagged

    It's no big deal really, just wondered if it were possible
    (Like on News App settings one can set which News categories come up on the front page - I always deselect the sport and finance sections - both of which are mysteries to me!)

    I don't think I could apply it to the new posts or recent posts buttons, that would affect everybody rather then just yourself.

    I might be able to tweak your personal settings so that you can't see the for sale and tech forums, but that would be permanent and not something I want to do on a per user basis.

    At the moment all of us are in the same container group with access to all areas, to start changing that I need to move people around and start changing permissions. I plan to do this eventually when I introduce membership incentives but not just yet.

    Fair enough

    - thought it was probably unlikely - hence the thread title!
    It's such a great UI here anyhow compared to the other fora.

    Your commitment is appreciated;)
