    A member brought their frustration about these posts filling up the list to my attention yesterday, so I have made this change. From now on, new posts will not show any posts from these three forums:

    Media Classifieds Forum

    Hardware Classifieds Forum
    UltraViolet & Digital Copy Codes Forum

    Hopefully this makes using HTF better for most of you. Please feel free to post suggestions like this here in this forum, or PM me. We are always looking for ways to make using HTF better.

    Thanks!

    I'm all for it!

    But, @Dave Upton , I don't think what I'm seeing is reflective of this. This was the "Recent Replies" widget on my "All Watched Threads" page just minutes ago:

    Mike, you're going to want to slap me, but i'm answering anyway :D

    New Posts is the link in the bar at the top. Recent Replies is a widget and the two are not related.

    Sorry to disappoint. I'll work on recent replies next.

    I figured it was something like that! :laugh:

    No slapping required!

    It goes to a point I make all the time--that it always seems to me like every single member of the forum navigates the forum in a different way! :D

    Too true! Turns out this wasn't too hard. I have removed those sub-forums from Recent Replies also.

    Now if we can just get the constant (and at times overpriced) "Available for Pre-order" ads removed from "New posts".

    Is there a way of having an option to eliminate the right column at all and reclaim all the lost Monitor space?
    Between the 2 margins, the large profile section on the left and the 1/3 of the the screen on the right less than half the width of
    my monitor contains forum information.

    I still wish the barrage of the other Pre-order "classified ads" that swamp the "New posts" feed would be stopped or be able to be easily user blocked.

    Alf,

    That's a good idea and something I will investigate. I agree that they tend to hide other content since Ron has to post so many at a time.

    Is there ANY way you can remove all these "Preorder" threads from the "New Posts" section?
