I don't know the best method to achieve this but I need some help with a hook or modifying the recent.php theme file to exclude a particular topic out of the Recent Post page.

Please help!

Hi @niel,

You can make the current topic private and set who can view private topics,

you can do that from the Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Forum Accesses Tab

By this way, private topics won't be visible in Recent posts.

@chris Thank you for your reply. I do want the members to be able to see the posts. I just would like them not to clutter the recent posts area. Example: We have a lot of new members just saying "hi" and introducing themselves which clogs up the recent posts with a lot of non-informative posts.

I do like that they are introducing themselves but I don't need these posts in the recent posts section.

I hope that makes sense. 🙂

There is no an easy way to check the recent posts of topics and exclude the topic from the list. This requires a lot of custom codding. I'm sorry, but this is out of our support scope.
