    Thank you! It was probably my most missed feature.

    Curious about the three options: News Feed, New Posts, and Thread List. What are they (in particular News Feed) I guess I don't see a situation in which I'd want to ignore a thread in one area but not the others. I'd be happy with a single button.

    We do not use newsfeed.

    Agreed.

    I like the new feature (it's a whole different experience when you ignore the Pub, or at least have more choice about entering it), but keeping the New Posts link immediately accessible on an iPhone would be great.

    I'm going to go ahead and call this a bug, first, because it doesn't make sense: if I want to ignore a forum or a thread, there is no need for the access to it to be so upfront. Second because on the iPad the order of things seems to make more sense:

    The "ignore thread" function appears to have either a bug, or limitations. I've chosen to ignore a thread that I had previously posted in. The thread continues to appear. :( Edit: The thread disappears until someone posts in it. Then it reappears. If I cycle unignore/ignore, it disappears again.
    Further edit: I still get Alerts when someone quotes my post in an ignored thread, but I guess that's beyond the scope of the ignore function.

    Hi again, Walter. Just saw your response today. :eek: I use the ignore poster function primarily for people whose posts I repeatedly fail to find to be of redeeming value. If those persons want to trash me afterwards and I can't respond because I don't see them, all the better! :)

    Feature Request - Any chance that 3 options are selected by default, rather than having to select them? I know it's minor and definitely a FWP, but it is a few extra clicks and I imagine that anyone hitting Ignore is selecting all 3 options almost every time.

    FYI - the Ignore Forum doesn't seem to be working after the 8/14 update.

    When I click into The Pub from the main page, in the upper right there is a link to Unignore Forum. I thought perhaps the update reset a permission, so I unignored The Pub, then reignored, selecting all the checkboxes (forum, newsfeed and mail). I reloaded the main page and The Pub still appears. I also logged out and back in again with the same results.

    Ignore Forum is not working for me, either. They are all displayed.

    I've reported this to the developer and we are working on a fix.

    I just went back in and selected "ignore pub" for "new posts" and now it seems to be working...

    Still not working. I "unignored" refreshed then "ignored" forum in both Firefox and MS edge. No change. I using Windows 10 desktop and a MS Surface Pro 4 tablet running windows 10. By the way, I have had no problem with the font size.

    Or iPhone.

    But thanks for making "new posts" a one-touch thing. :beer

    The "Ignore Thread" link that's usually on the top-right of each page has disappeared. :(
    Edit: It appears that the entire "Ignore Thread" function is no longer working. Many Pub threads that I'd previously ignored have reappeared. Bummer.
