Forum Software Question- Re: Muting Categories

When I peruse the Forum, for my “main view”, I select “Latest” to see topics with recent post across all Categories/all Tags.

How can I mute individual Categories in this view? I looked through the Forum Guides but didn’t find the answer there.

Thank you in advance!


You can do this from your profile:

Some category names were changed and may need to be readded to your list.


Thank you for the ultra-quick response!

Yes, I thought that was the way to go about it. Strange, because I have the VR Category “Muted” but I’m still seeing VR topics in that main view I use. I selected VR from the drop-down so I think it should be correct. Maybe I’ve screwed-up something else.

The reason for that is that category name changed.

Remove what you have there and readd it.

Will do, thank you!

As you noted, there is no guide in #msfs:forum-guides. I’ll start working on a guide for that category so we can avoid issues like this in the future!

Thank you!


Here is the guide: Muting/Ignoring Users and Categories

Thank you. I appreciate you picking-up on that and offering to put a guide together for others who may need direction in the future.

We have a great Community here; a fantastic resource. And folks like you who volunteer/contribute make it so. One of the reasons I spend so much time here… as well as our World Class Team of Forum Moderators and Community Managers who keep us zingin’ along :slight_smile:

Thanks again!
