One of the perks of registering - the "ignore" option
« on: June 24, 2013, 09:49:58 PM »
A few people have been asking if the forum has an "ignore" option - either an option to ignore the posts of a person or persons or an option to ignore particular topics.

One of the perks of registering with the forum is access to this feature.

If you are already registered here is how to do it:

To ignore another person (ie. not to see their posts)

Go to Profile > Forum Profile > Modify Profile > Buddies/Ignore List > Edit Ignore List
Enter the user name of the person you want to ignore and click on Add.


To ignore a section of the forum (ie. not to see any threads in that section)

Go to Profile > Forum Profile > Modify Profile > Ignore Boards Option

A checklist of boards will appear. Click the ones you want to ignore and click on Change Profile.

Any problems, just send me a pm or email me at admin@joe-music.net

You can't ignore a whole thread, can you? You just have to ignore the whole board?
For example I want to ignore some artists threads but it only gives me the option to ignore the whole film, music, tv board (I think)

Correct.
According to the software developers to put in an option for this would slow the whole forum down too much:

is it possible to find out if you are being 'ignored' by others ?
