custom forum layout / ignore some forums or sort them ?


I was wondering if it's possible to somehow ignore some forums from a user POV, or at least sort them. The problem is that I never go to some forums and there's no need for them to take up space in my user interface. For example Mobile, Server, most of the distributions, enterprise, most of the other nix* forums simply do no interest me and I rarely go there. Is there any easy way to hide from me or sort them or something to get them out of the way ?

Is there a way to do it currently that I don't know of ? if not, is there any way to implement such a feature as part of the user customizations or something ?

You can exclude them from most searches (Edit Options -> Miscellaneous Options), but there is currently no way to completely hide them from the entire LQ interface.

I see, well I think it would be useful, I've seen forums where you can just minimize or collapse forums just to get them out of the way ... it was a great idea IMO.

For example? -- I like to go see what you're talking about.

Here's one. Click the arrow on the right side of the Title Bar to expand/collapse the forum contents.

Cheers

yeah, something like that. I had an example, but the forum was taken down a few months ago.

I'm either missing the point of the example, or this feature -- the clickable arrow on the right side of the Title Bar -- is already here at LQ; furthermore, LQ remembers the state I left it in. The only other thing I could ask for is a master expand/collapse button.

Pretty nice feature.

BTW, MepisLovers is the same way, it's probably a feature of vBulletin.

Oh yeah, it seems to be there, but I was hoping you could do that with individual forums too, but oh well, it's ok so far I guess.

Don't worry -- you're among friends. Besides, you introduced me to a useful feature & saved me from asked OP WTF he was talking about.

Notice that OP thanked you for the post, as will I -- it was key to my seeing what is/was there.

Thank you, Rick. You're kind words are greatly appreciated. I just can't believe I'd never noticed that before. Must be an 'old age' thing.

I agree that would still be better, if it's not too difficult to implement.

Cheers

You know the button doesn't do anything with javascript off (just takes you to the top), maybe that's why I didn't notice it. My bad, I guess.
