    Hiding/Muting a forum/sub forum 9th Dec 18 at 12:47 PM
    This morning 80%+ of new posts on my timeline are competitions/advents - is there any way to hide/mute these that have no interest ?

    You can view your subscriptions within your User CP

    User CP>List Subscriptions

    There you can then delete the subscription or update the subscription type

    Tick the appropriate box(es) >Make the appropriate selectrion from the drop down menu at the bottom "Selected Threads">Go


    To avoid doing this in future, you can also set/revise your
    'Default Thread Subscription Mode' within your User CP

    User CP>Edit Options>Second box under second category 'Messaging & Notification'

    If like me you use "see New posts" all the time, it would be great if you could "exclude" say the competitions sub-forum from them. I think this is what the OP is after. If there's a way, i'd love to know too.

    Yeah, you need to bookmark the link and always use that afresh each time.

    It is basically a link to instigate a forum search with certain parameters (which is what the normal 'New posts' link does), but here with some extra ones added in a syntax the board understands. It is not changing any forum settings, as there are no persistent user facing ones to change on this. So each time to perform that search afresh, you will need to re-use the link you bookmarked.

    Not a perfect solution, sorry.

    Bumped - so I don't lose it off the bottom of my "subscriptions" page.
