Post About the NewsBot

These RSS news feeds come from various other sites (that I select) on the net. It will be a bit busy in the next day or so, as it catches up to the articles that are a bit older. Once that is done, it will post news articles as they are published.

I agree, this will be a very good feature.

Yeah, I think so. Once we get caught up on the feeds (he is SpamBot at the moment. ) it will be a nice add. I selected Mustang Monthly, Ford, Stangnet, and Autoweek. If anyone wants to suggest other RSS feeds, send them my way, and I will take a look.

I have NewsBot's EXTRA EXTRA! posts excluded from the Search Engine (for now.) I will add a "New Posts" button that excludes this forum, and Area 51, from the new posts menu item, but also have one that catches everything (so people can choose.)

Let's see if it works. It may still show up for Moderators and Founders.. but not show for everyone else.

Lightbulb How to Exlude Forums from "New Posts" Link

If you want to prevent posts from this forum showing up in the "New Posts" link, go to User CP (User Control Panel) and select "Edit Options." Then go to the bottom of that screen, and select "EXTRA! EXTRA!" from the "Exclude Forums from 'Get New Posts'" section. You can select multiple forums, if you want to exclude other forums from the New Posts link.

Windows: Use Control-Click to select multiple forums to exclude.
Mac: Use Apple key to select multiple forums to exclude.
Linux: Use Control-Click to select multiple forums to exclude.

Then click "Save"

Exclude Forums from "Get New Posts" You can select certain Forums you do not want to appear when clicking Get New Posts

It probably should have its own forum. Sometimes these feeds take over the "new posts" listing and we wind up with 5 or 6 pages of recent posts, which is really not the case.

Just a suggestion.

Bill,

It is already in its own forum area, but to prevent it from taking over new posts, you have to exclude it from the search. See the example above on how to exclude that forum only.
