Setting aside the question of whether creating sub categories in the Uniden Scanners forum is good or bad....

Is there a way I can view all new posts to all Uniden child categories at once. Selecting NEW POSTS button at the top of screen shows new post to all forums, but what I would like is just new posts to Uniden forums, sequentially all on one page, i.e. as it was before?

Possible?

I'm not aware of a method to view all new posts of a parent forum. It's a limitation of the forums software.

I'm sure there will be topics that aren't of interest to you so the minor inconvenience of choosing a forum and looking for the newest posts at the top should balance out. I know it's not the best answer but we have to aim for somewhere in the middle of helping out everyone as a whole.

If you want to change your search URL. Just need to Add/Delete any Forum ID's from the URL.

Thanks. That works.

(And, for clarity, I quoted your search-url using "code" tags so the URL's entire exclusion-list would be visible. My browser hides most of it.)

I am going to that other thread you listed and ask if its "Forum ID list" (which is 3.5 yrs old) can be updated.

Thanks again,

Thanks MtnBiker2005. That works great!

With a little bit of PHP code that could be added, as a button, to the Uniden parent page.

The RadioReference.com Forums - Search Results,
It is actually a little easier than that. You can specify only the list that interest you, instead of all the others you aren't interested in.

Get daily list on Uniden forums (/search.php?do=getdaily&forumid=82,248,249,250,251,252,253,254)

Get new posts on Uniden forums(/search.php?do=getnew&forumid=82,248,249,250,251,252,253,254)

Basically, you'd use "forumid" instead of "exclude".

Excellent info. Thanks!

ETA: for parent forums with child forums, like the Uniden forum, you only need to include the parent forum's ID (82).
Code:

After experimenting with do=getdaily and do=getnew, I have observed:

The &forumid= parameter does not accept multiple arguments.
It may appear to return results from multiple forums but all it does is return results from a single forum and its subforums. When I add a forum that is not a subforum of the first one listed, it doesn't work.

&exclude= works but you have to list every forum except the ones you want. Excluding a forum does not exclude its subforums. This begs the question, "wouldn't it be easier just to list the forums you want?" Well, yes, it would be easier. Too bad it doesn't seem to work.

I guess the good news is that I've discovered do=getdaily and do=getnew. But considering the tedious task of listing all the forums to be excluded, I question if it's worth the trouble. There wouldn't have been any trouble if a forum hadn't been 'fixed' so nicely that I was looking for a workaround. Maybe I'll just accept change whether I like it or not. You can't fight city hall.

What combination of forums are you trying to view?

Oops.. yeah that's a problem. Looking at the VB source code reveals that the forumid parameter is converted to an int value type. It does not "explode" the comma delimited forum ids into an array like the exclude parameter does.

My copy of VB is quite old now(v3.0.0), so there may be other query string params available in RR's more recent version.
