    Forum Suggestion : Hide forums from New Posts list

    I love to browse forums by New Posts, but it's tiresome to wade through a lot of forum posts I don't care to see. A lot of forums have this feature, I'd imagine it'd be easy to implement but I might be wrong.

    I'd like to have the ability to hide threads from the "New Posts" as well. Right now I just work around it by checking what I want to check, then clicking "Forum Actions > Mark Forums Read" to get rid of the rest.

    I've been using my script that hid posts from Welcome Center for a while now. =)

    Code:
    document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', pageEnhancements, false);
    
    function filterSearch()
    {
      var desc = document.querySelector("#pagetitle .description");
      if (desc.textContent.indexOf("Type: Posts; New Posts") != -1)
      {
        var hidden = 0;
        var items = document.querySelectorAll(".threadbit");
        for (var i = 0; i < items.length; i++)
        {
          var postedin = items[i].querySelector(".threadpostedin a");
          if (postedin && (postedin.title == "Welcome Center"))
          {
            items[i].style.display = "none";
            hidden++;
          }
        }
        if (hidden > 0)
        {
          desc.textContent += "(" + hidden + " hidden from Welcome Center)";
        }
      }
    }
    
    function pageEnhancements()
    {
      if (document.location.pathname.indexOf('/vbulletin/search.php') != -1)
      {
        filterSearch();
      }
    }

    You can essentially already do this with the forum's advanced search tool.

    To utilize it how you want you'll want to do the following:

    Search In
    Search Type: [Posts]

    Search for Posts
    Leave default/blank for all these options

    Additional Options
    Search in Forum(s): CTRL+Click to select the ones you want to view.

    Search by Prefix: [(any thread)]

    Find Threads with: <leave blank>

    Find Posts: [Your Last Visit] [and Newer]

    Sort Results by: [Last Posting Date] [in Descending Order]

    Show Results as: [Threads]

    Screenshot of these settings for a quick example: http://i.imgur.com/JImNBmr.png

    Then you could bookmark the search and use it every time you want to browse it.
