Is there anyway I can filter the "new message" list to only forums that I am interested in?

Yes, but you have to know the forum numbers. For example, this URL will search only the ebook uploads threads:

www.mobileread.com/forums/search.php?do=getdaily&include=126,128,138,153 (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/search.php?do=getnew&include=126,128,138,153)

If you substitute the numbers for the threads you're interested in, that should do the trick. You can find the forum numbers by looking at their links in the Forums List (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/) -- the number is the last part of the URL: i.e. the Sony Reader forum is #100.

Ah. That seemed to do post for the last day. So, I stole the link from the New with the exclude and added a bunch of excludes. Knowing how to get the forum numbers was key.

Thanks,

Glad that helped! If you're only wanting to look at a few forums, the include switch might be less cumbersome than excluding everything else. :nice:

So, you can also use the include= paramter when you use do=getnew? I wasn't sure if that would work.

As far as I know, the include and exclude parameters are interchangeable -- with opposite effects, of course.

If it doesn't work, I'd be quite interested in knowing that though.

That seems to work well enough. :shrug:
