How to Hide Crypto Threads from "View New Posts"

Postby ThePowersThatBe » Fri Dec 22, 2017

By request, we now have a mechanism for hiding crypto threads from View New Posts for any members who do not want to sort through them.

We created a membership group that hides threads in the Bitcoin/Crypto/Blockchain forum from the search function. This in turn also hides these threads from the View New Posts and Active Topics queries.

If you do not want to see crypto threads when you click View New Posts, follow these instructions to add yourself to the No-Crypto group:

1) Click on your username in the upper right corner to expand the drop-down menu and click on User Control Panel.
2) In the UCP, click on the Usergroups tab.
2B) Alternatively, click here to be taken directly to the Usergroups page.
3) Look for the "No-Crypto" group and click the radio button next to it.
4) At the bottom of the list, make sure "Join selected" is shown in the drop-down box, and click Submit.
5) Click Yes on the confirmation page.

You are now a member of the No-Crypto group and threads from the Bitcoin/Crypto/Blockchain forum will not show up when you click View New Posts.

You can remove yourself from the No-Crypto group at any time by returning to the same page, selecting the No-Crypto group, and selecting the "Resign selected" option.

If you join the No-Crypto group, you can still browse and post in the Bitcoin/Crypto/Blockchain forum, but note that threads from that forum will not appear in search results when you use the search box.

Stray crypto threads posted in other forums (such as the Contest Arena or Polling Place) will still show up in View New Posts, but those should be relatively few and far between.

You can join both the No-Crypto group and the No-KSA group if you want to hide both.

I also think this is a great feature. I do not want any stackers to stop coming to BS merely due to the heavier than normal traffic on the crypto side of the house. I view crypto & PMs as brothers attempting to achieve the same goal but I know that isn't how everybody sees it. Thank you for giving stackers this option.

I'd also like to thank BS for being so open and friendly towards crypto as it's been. Allowing those of us learning and dabbling in it a place to bounce around ideas and information. It's been very appreciated.

Is there a way to hide certain members from the crypto thread? :lol:

We've wanted to do this for a long time, so folks could block the KSAs. Now even more so with all the crypto threads. I've spent hours searching plug-ins, reading phpBB forums and playing with the code. Nothing ever worked. Then yesterday TPTB figured out a clever solution. I may have had a tiny little part in it. :ugeek: :ugeek: :ugeek:

Three cheers for TPTB! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

There is the ignore function where you put someone in your Foes list. Or do you mean hide the crypto threads from certain members? :lol:

Could you create a No-BHSW (Butt-Hurt Socialist Whining) option as well? I know of one thread... :D

It is a nice option and I probably would have used it a year ago even, but without it being in the view new posts I wouldn't have randomly read the bitcoin forums there. Thankfully after being a skept for sometime the chit chat in the Bitcoin forums convinced me to get my feet wet. Well now( even with the recent drop) I have managed to turn my initial investment into more than 4 times the value. Glad I got the info I did here but I would have missed out greatly if I did block crypto forums.
