New feature - Ignore User
« on: February 12, 2013, 07:10:46 PM »
Mods have "fast tracked" the requested "Ignore User" function. This was going to wait for the major update, but we have decided to implement it now. We have reached the point where it is better to allow the membership to use it if they wish, than to not have it at all.

To use this feature, you need to have the default theme set within your profile. It MAY work with some of the popular default themes, but we have tested with the "SMF Default Theme - Core" and it works perfectly. You may need to log out and log in again to see this feature in effect. Simply check the authors of the posts and you will see the option.

The remainder of this thread will remain "open" to report any TECHNICAL Issues or questions.

For obvious reasons, Strangeways and I can't use this function unfortunately. So if one of us is ignoring you - we really are, the old way!

Ignoring Private Messages
Importantly, the function if used from below the to be blocked member profile does not block PM's from that member. if you wish to block PM's from a nuisance member, navigate to –

Profile (tabs across the top)
From Modify Profile links on the left
Click Personal Message Options
Add the user name to the Ignorelist box

I'm having a little trouble setting this up. I have logged out and back in, I use a standard colour scheme the same as the old colours, blue background.  Do I need to use the red and black scheme as I would rather use the blues?

Looking forward to seeing this working as its doing my head in  ^&^

Hi Matt, check at the bottom right the setting is "SMF - Default Theme Core".

You should then be able to see under the users avatar a small "Ignore" icon.

And otherwise you see an empty picture that does the same thing.

I've set the default theme to ""SMF - Default Theme Core". I can globally change this and reset everyone's theme easily if required. This will force everyone's theme to be the same unless they change it again ?

Matt - Is it working for you now ?

I can see what you said Rob!

To answer your question, no BUT if you block them on PM's - to which they get an error message which spells it out quite clearly.
