Last time I checked this option wasn't available on this platform but it would really be nice if the individual user could edit the forums that are displayed through the control panel.

This may not be true for most users but I'm not interested in 90% of the forums. If you had this capability you could edit your account to where only those ones you were interested in would be shown instead of having to wade through pages of those that you aren't.

Just a suggestion for a future update.

I'm not sure what you mean. I assume the "control panel" is your User CP? If so, where are you looking?

I'm suggesting that the user have the capability to "edit" which forums are displayed through the USER CP.
This can be done by subscribing (under forum tools) to only those forums of interest. When you do that, it shows up under the User CP. Then...when you click on Forums, use the Forums Profile, and you will only see those of interest.

I'm still playing with this but it appears to do what I'm wanting. Thanks for the information.

Another possibility is when you are on the Forums Home Page, every main category has a circle with double up or down arrowheads in the blue banner. You can "collapse" categories that way.
It is a nice way to "tighten" the page almost to the size of not having to scroll up or down to see the listings.

Thanks. I had used that some as well.
