I find the posts by Newsman very annoying so I put him in my ignore list. But his entries still show up when I click "New Posts". Its very annoying to see his entries in the list of new posts despite the fact i've "ignored" him... Is there any solution to my problem?
its a bot alright. but it still behaves like a member posting. they data is posted automatically from a rss feed. i am considering removing the system but the point is that the forum would get few new threads a day and some of these stories do end up becoming a talking point for members on the forum. of course most of them are non-relevant... i never thought it would be hard to ignore posts from a single username in a single forum... ok. i did find a plugin which would have solved the problem.it does not work with this latest update though. should be fixed in a matter of days. i will keep an eye on that.
Umm...sushubh, it doesnt work! I still am able to see the posts by Newsman when I search for new posts... Atleast push his post last i.e. at the end of the search result so that people's posts can be seen first and then all posts by newsman. It'll atleast give the user a choice whether he/she wants to read the news.
arey told ya. i tried out the plugin but it seems to be not working on this version of the forum...i have monitoring that thread on the vb.com forum and would install that as soon as the compatible version is released.that plugin would let members ignore a particular forum (news discussion in this case) from new posts...
