    I would like to remove certain sections of these forums (particularly the PRSI board) from the list that is returned when I click on the New Posts button. Is this possible?

    Yes, you can create your own bookmark for New Posts and exclude forums you don't want to see. For example:

    Code:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/search.php?do=getnew&exclude=4,43,107,160,154
    You can find the forum numbers by hovering over the forum name in the listing, and look at the Status Bar at the bottom.

    Wowsers, that seems perfect! Thank you. This information should be on a sticky somewhere.

    Now that's an excellent tip. I suppose it'll be different once the forum migrates?

    Just go to your forum options here and add the forum numbers GGJStudios pointed out to the Exclude Forums section and they will no longer be displayed when you click New Posts.

    Another excellent piece of advice, thank you so much! I'm hoping Xenforo has a similar function.
