Yes, that's how it works.

Keep in mind it is NOT hierarchical. You have to exclude all the forms separately, you can't just do a parent forum. I've attached how mine looks. I exclude the foreign language sections too.

Is it because I'm asking for posts and threads rather than forums? (Probably, now that I think of it.) Anyway, what I would find useful is the ability to exclude not just forums but non-English threads (I'm that typical American who can only converse in non-English English).

EDIT: Alex, another thought. What might be a good way to solve my problem would be if I could simply choose to ignore a thread from the main thread listing, that is, from the main listing of posts without actually opening the thread and then choosing to ignore it.
Excluded non-English language forums don't show up in my new posts in the past 24 hours search.

The forum and *all* of it's sub-forums must be highlighted for exclusion (Holding Ctlr to select more than one). Since some additional devices sub-forums were recently added to non-English forums, I had to go in and highlight the new sub-forum to exclude it.

Attached is an example. I hope this helps.

I think I know why some of us still get non-English threads popping up. From time to time a new sub-forum is added in a non-English forum. If you don't check your ignore settings from time to time those new sub-forums will pop up with new threads. I just checked my settings and 2 new sub-forums had been added since the last time I checked.

Bob and Wetdogeared, thanks. I see what I was doing wrong and will fix it. I appreciate the images.
