    Hey Guys & Gals,

    With SOOOO much BlackBerry Storm forum action, I know some of you are getting annoyed that it's taken over the Today's BlackBerry Posts link. I made note of this on another thread yesterday, but thought I would ellobarate. I also added it to the CrackBerry Forums How To thread in the FAQ. Hope it helps keep you all sane!

    How To Customize Today's Posts to Ignore Specific Forums

    CrackBerry.com offers two links for viewing Today's Posts..

    Today's Posts (BlackBerry Forums)


    and

    Today's Posts (All Forums)

    These links are located on the main website under the "Help & Discussion Forums" drop down on the main menu, and are also links at the top of the mobile forums site (http://wapforums.crackberry.com)

    The default query is to view All Forums. This link/URL is actually a database query which fetches and retrieves the latest forum posts for all forums. For Today's BlackBerry Posts, we have simply excluded the CrackBerry Cafe Social forums and some of the lesser forums (i.e. Site Bugs & Reporting). This keep the "BlackBerry Posts" relevant to the topic of BlackBerry stuff.

    Customizing Today's Posts for your own Needs


    If there are certain forums you want to exclude when viewing Today's Posts, you can actually customize this query statement and bookmark it for your viewing pleasure.

    For example, the default querty for Today's Posts looks like this:

    http:// forums.crackberry.com/search.php?do=getdaily

    while the Today's BB posts, features the forums to be excluded:

    http:// forums.crackberry.com/search.php?do=getdaily&exclude=36,19,47,39,99,51

    When you scroll over the forums on the homepage, pay attention to the status bar on your web browser. You'll be able to see the url for each forum, which at the end contains that forums #. Any forums you don't want to see, simply list them in the exclude statement per the example of.

    So if for example you want to view Today's BlackBerry Posts, but want to EXCLUDE The Storm forums, you would just add ,86 to the statement above:


    http:// forums.crackberry.com/search.php?do=getdaily&exclude=36,19,47,39,99,51,8 6

    You can check it out in action here: Today's BB Posts (minus Storm)


    Enjoy!!!

    That's too funny. Yeah, I've noticed the Storm thread is explosive now and posts seem to appear 20 every half a minute. Thanks.
