This mod cannot and will not be made available for 1.1 users as the ability to ignore boards is not present in 1.1.

Installation

Package Manager should work in most cases. If you need to make any edits, the full list can be obtained from the Parse function on the right.

Translations for any language are more than welcome, and you will be noted for your work. :)

I can update it for RC3 later this week, but don't have any code/text editors on this computer. You might try emulating the version number in the meantime if you'd like to install it before I get the package updated.

Admin -> Packages -> Browse Packages -> (bottom of the page, under the packages list) Advanced -> Emulate Version {enter: SMF 2.0 RC2} -> Apply

Would it be possible to hide recent messages in 1.1 if their category is collapsed?

Not with this mod, this mod is absolutely nothing to do with what you're thinking of. It was originally written for the 'Ignore Boards' functionality in 2.0.

What you're asking for is a totally different mod, really.

For the requirement i have for one of my forums, this is a good MOD. It would have been great if it also had the following two options.

(1). After the members have selected the boards of their choice, there are chances that more number of boards or categories get added. In such a situation, every time the member needs to "check those boards" in their profile. For this, is there anything we can do? I mean, i am looking for the reverse of this MOD.

(2). Admin should have the ability restrain a member from "checking" a particular board(or an entire category). Like, News and Updates.

When the mod was written, it was simply in response to a user's request, nothing more. Plus most of the surrounding logic was already implemented making this a quick and easy fix.

1) I'm not entirely sure what you mean by 'the reverse of this mod'. So users have to check the boards in their profile... it happens, but if they want to ignore a board when it comes out, that's up to them.

2) I've thought for a while this should really be a core feature of SMF.

Lets assume a member wants to view very few boards and ignore the rest of them(assuming the forum has lots of categories and boards).
At present, we need to check those required boards. I am looking for something opposite to that. All the boxes of the boards should be "checked" and the member needs to "uncheck" just the few of the boxes which he needs.

That was, and remains, out of scope for this mod as far as I'm personally concerned; the mod just changes the underlying logic around how boards are handled. The mod's author is free to implement it, but I sincerely doubt it will happen, it's just not what this mod was designed to be.

However, I have taken it under consideration for inclusion into future SMF.

That would be a great.

And meanwhile, if you think if the future inclusion may take a longer time(more than 3 to 4 months), i may want to request for a new MOD in the Modifications and Packages section(i guess that is the right section for paid/unpaid MOD).

Do you think it would be a simple MOD, or a lot of code change?

It's definitely not a simple mod to do what you're asking. If it was, I would have done it the first time around when I originally put this together :P

I'm certainly not going to give a timeline for inclusion; simply that I have added it to the list of things that need doing, and we'll revisit it as and when appropriate. What you're asking for is a non trivial change to the way a lot of things work, or else it's just a lot of messy fudging.

For the time being, i will stick to this MOD till SMF includes this feature. I really don't want to mess up anything. Thanks a lot.

Do note that that is NOT a definitive 'we are doing this'. It is on my list for review, that's no guarantee of anything, nor should it be construed as such.
