Default Re: Ignore forums?

Reading between the lines, Joraft, I suspect a facility to "ignore posts by" (enter user name of choice), is what is being enquired about.
I may be wrong and being mortal that happens, it is a facility on a couple of UK forums, the fun comes when a hot topic gets going and someone asks "Why can't I see posts by *******?"

regards Rob.

Actually, Rob, Jay (the original poster) did mention that he knew how to block the posts of other members, but he's looking for a way to block subjects rather than people.

As I said earlier, there may be a way and I just don't about it. I was hoping someone with more knowledge of the forum software could help us out here.

Jay,

AFAIK, there is no way to "Ignore Forums". For example, when you hit "New Posts", it retrieves all new posts regardless of category.

About the best I can suggest is to hide forum sections that you don't want to see. For example, if you don't want to see the "Non-Festool Tools" section, hit the black arrow in the "Non-Festool Tools" section header.

Regards,

Dan.

I have never read that quote, but it is really interesting. (Note: I not commenting on this thread, beyond just that quote, which I loved.)
