Ignore a thread function - Updated with instructions...
« on: September 07, 2017, 08:11:04 pm »
Ok, so despite the fact that this is not actually an option as far as SMF forum is concerned, I think I've managed to get this done.

So, when you click on "New Replies" you will now see an option for "Ignore Topics". Simply put a checkmark next to the topic(s) you want to ignore and click the "Ignore Topics" button.

If you want to unignore your topics at a later data you go into your "Profile"  then into the "Modify Profile" Menu and finally to the "Ignore Topics Options".

Try it out and let me know if it works for you.

If it doesn't... well then I'm sorry and I'll go back to the drawing board...

===================================================
HOW TO SET UP TO USE THIS FUNCTIONALITY

You need to setup quick-moderation inside your profile.

Do this:

1. Go to Profile
2. Under the "Modify Profile" menu, select "Look and Layout"
3. On the Look and Layout screen change the "Show quick-moderation as" option to "checkboxes"

Then go back into either New Replies or New Posts and it should be there and working.

Click on either "New Posts" or "New Replies" and take a screenshot for me and share it here please?

You shouldn't need to restart. This has nothing to do with your own computer...

Mine also didn't show initially, then I followed your instruction to modify my profile... now it shoes a checkbox, and the option to mark all as read... but still no option to ignore the thread...

This should be sorted for you and all other users now @OomD - I thought I had applied the permission correctly, but I hadn't. I have now. let me know.

I'm still busy with the "Say Thanks" - new recent addition, but it requires some additional effort behind the scenes on the server itself which I am busy with... So just ignore it for now until I post an official thread...
