        Yeah. I probably overstated my recovery but, still thanks for doing this.

              Which version are you using? This post will disappear from the "Unread posts' version once you've "caught up", but not from the Today's Posts version.

                For those wondering or want to do this on their own, the forum software allows an "exclude" statement to ignore what's known as nodes or channels in the software. All I did was figure out what the node/channel # was for the HS4 Insteon forum and then tacked that onto the URL that's normally generated for the Today's Posts or Unread Posts buttons at top.

                "exclude":"1515837"

                The problem was that the software is setup to generated encoded JSON which looks confusing, I simply used a utility to unencode it to make it more human readable. the forum software will take both unencoded and encoded JSON commands.

                The exclude statement will also use an array of values, so one could ignore multiple forums.

                  I am using this version <code> https://forums.homeseer.com/search?searchJSON={%22view%22:%22topic%22,%22unread_only%22: 1,%22sort%22:{%22l%20astcontent%22:%22desc%22},%22exclude_ty pe%22:[%22vBForum_PrivateMessage%22],%22exclude%22:%221515837%22} </code>

                  It is also giving me many more than only "Today's Posts"

                    Yeah, that's the Unread Posts URL. Try this one:

                    Code:
                    https://forums.homeseer.com/search?searchJSON={%22last%22:{%22from%22:%22lastDay%22},%22view%22:%22topic%22,%22starter_only%22:+1,%22sort%22:{%22lastcontent%22:%22desc%22},%22exclude_type%22:[%22vBForum_PrivateMessage%22],%22exclude%22:%221515837%22}

                      You rock! 👏 I can go back to counting sheep at night instead of Insteons.

                          Thank TC1 That's his handiwork. I just re-posted his URL from an earlier post.
