There is a link that will bring me to all the topics that have been posted since my last visit.
But I would to be able to filter that list: I only want to see the new topics that have been posted on the forums I have indicated only.
Some of the forums are less interesting to me - my Turkish, Polish and Portuguese are not what they used to be, and gaming is not my Cup of Tea either.
Why not just ignore the boards?
Filtering them is almost impossible.
This feature has been suggested already. It's just a bit hard to code and the existing mods aren't like I would like them to be.
It would be nice if this feature could be implemented.
I will implement/code something like this, the mod noobie suggested is however not good and stable enough for me. But you will eventually have the option to stop watching certain boards, like the language forums.
i like the filteridea, this week i left the forum three times (without reading anything) because the first page of new postings was filled with polish, french and other stuff. probably a number of good postings in there - but i'll never know cuz i can't read them.
i think phpbb has read/write-flags for usergroups, so one way of filtering would be to put up usergroups for every foreign language. then again there might be a number of multilingal people so the number of required usergroups would be rather large.
another awkward idea: take a look at the searchfunktion, it will probably issue a SQLstatement. so if you installed a page with a number of checkboxes for the boardID an then issue the resulting SQLstatement...
someone must have had that idea before:/
What? It isn't possible in 2.x without modifications in BETA/ALPHA/RC.
Anyway, he said he'll do them sooon.
