Is it possible to just show new posts of selected forums?

Hi there,

is there a possibility to just show new posts of selected forums? At vbulletin forums you can do this via  search.php?include=1,2,3 so I tried search.php?action=show_new&fid=20,30,33,47,42,24,50 here. But it only searches for the new posts of forum with the id 20 and ignores all the other parameters.. Any ideas? Did I overlook this function anywhere?

Thanks in advance

You can subscribe to only selected forums.
'New' and 'Active' topics show threads (not posts) from all forum sections.

Thanks for moving, jasonwryan.

Isn't there another option then subscribing? Kinda inconvenient..

Why do you consider it inconvenient?
fluxbb is very simple when compared to vbulletin.

On the forum home page, top right, It says "Topics:", and to the right of that is "New", which should show you new topics since your last visit. At least I think that's what it does.

Sure, but that's not what OP wants.

So yeah it's inconvenient because my mailbox will explode big_smile

Question to the administration: Is it possible to implement this feature? As for now I can search each forum for new posts with search.php?action=show_new&fid=20 for example. So it shouldn't be that complex to implement a search with multiple forum IDs like search.php?action=show_new&fid=20,21,22,23?

Would be really great..

To the suggestion with "New" threads or new posts in threads (search.php?action=show_new): It's a lot to search through and I don't want to spend too much time for it smile

Arch Linux doesn't use patched packages and this extends to forum or bug tracking software.
You would have to ask for this upstream: www.fluxbb.org
