Ignore function?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

apparently older forum software supported the feature to ignore a user (a post dating back to 2006 claims that).

 

Is that feature still available in the current forum software? If yes, how do I activate/ use it?

 

Thanks!

It's still there. Click on your username in the top-right, then click on the "Ignored Users" entry in the menu that pops up. That should take you to a page where you can enter usernames to ignore.

I do wonder what 'ignoring' actually does.  I checked the feature yesterday and, to my surprise, found I have one user on my ignore list. I can still see this user's posts so I wonder does it block private messages but not posts or does it effectively do nothing at all?

If you look under the ignored username, there should be a list of content types that are blocked (posts, messages, signature, and/or mentions). You can also click the gear icon under their name to adjust this setting. So the answer to your question is "it depends".

 

I just checked, and it does work correctly for me, at least for posts.

Thanks, works like a charm! 😊

Not completely straight forward, selecting from the 'filter by' drop down didn't achieve anything but the gear menu did work. Good to know, even if I don't really feel the need  to activate the ignore feature at present.
