A long requested feature has been to have the ability to hide certain forums from showing up in various parts of the site (i.e. don't show Politics or Gaming threads on the Recent Posts list); with that in mind, I'm putting the finishing touches on some coding to provide that capability and need final feedback.
Right now you can get to a list of recent posts a few different ways..
1) Clicking on Forum in the navbar
2) Clicking on What's New? in the navbar
3) Clicking on New Posts in the subnavbar
Ideally you'd have the capability to drive all three functions off of the same preferences, but I have to implement it in stages to get the functionality in production sooner rather than later. With that in mind, please vote on the included poll as to which of the three areas you'd first like to see the ability to hide posts from certain forums. To be selfish, #2 and #3 are the easiest based on the code I've already produced.
I hope to have code implemented by the weekend for at least one of the sections, and will release the other sections once I'm comfortable in the load impact from the additional queries and have fully tested all the various scenarios.
