I just added some new functionality to clean up Forums that are a bit over-cluttered with site related content posts. Back in the old days many members use to simply use the forums to find all the new content on the site (rather than peruse the homepage, news page or other article areas. Things have changed a lot since back then so it doesn't make sense (by default) to be showing a bunch of topics that duplicate the news, reviews, and features we already have listed on our homepage, Facebook, and elsewhere. Of course if you WANT to still see these things you will have that option by checking the "Show Site Content Related Topics" and hitting the "Save Selected" submit button to the right of that area. I also fixed the issue of non-associated topics not showing up if you use the filtered view, so now you also have an option to include those topics in your preferred forum view.
This current does not affect the Latest Posts page in any way and there is the Content forum on Model Shipwrights that is also going to get emptied by default for this feature. I need to add an exclusion for that forum I guess.
If you have questions, suggestions, or see some bugs related to this change please post them here.
