If you want to limit the viewing of certain forums, there are ways to do this:
1. New Posts Opt Out - you can determine what forums you want to see when you click New Posts - here's how:
Go to you USER CP / Edit Options (http://www.investorsiraq.com/profile.php?do=editoptions)
Scroll to the bottom of the page
Go to the option called Exclude Forums from "Get New Posts"
When selecting the forum you do not want to see, you can hold the CTRL button on your keyboard to select multiple forums.
2. Portal Views - We have various options in the Portal section (on the menu at the top of the page) so you can see the latest posts in only the areas you would like to view. You can also bookmark (favorite) that section in your browser (or make it a shortcut on your desktop) so it becomes your homepage for IIF. The New Posts Opt Out does not function here.
