How to block all activities of a member

Postby smallwhite » Tue Nov 13, 2018 3:33 pm

What choices do I have regarding posts from members I don’t want to read? I know I can have their posts covered up; need to click Show Post or something to read the post. Can I stop someone’s new posts from appearing in my Unread Posts? Like they never posted anything at all? Or can I single out their posts and mark all as read? (Better than nothing).

Thanks.

If you add someone to your foe list it will hide all messages from them. Click the persons profile then "Add Foe" and their posts will be hidden. (Although you will still see quoted posts)

Oh, I remember that button from another forum. Sadly, I was a co-administrator there and had to keep an eye on each post (as is the case here, unfortunately...).

AFAIUI, the Foe feature only hides the posts with the "show post" link, which snallwhite says she already knows about.

I too would like a feature that kept certain posts from even showing up in my Unread Posts page or in notifications for subscribed threads. But I don't think such a feature exists.

phpBB is opensource, you're a programmer .... see where I'm going with this?

If your browser supports Greasemonkey/Violentmonkey or Tampermonkey you could easily hide all threads started by a specific user with 4 lines of Javascript code.
Simply install one of the Monkey extensions, create a new script, paste the following code into it and save it.

Code: Select all

// ==UserScript==
// @name        LLORG Filter
// @include     *forum.language-learners.org*
// ==/UserScript==
var posts = document.querySelectorAll("li.row"), i;

for (i = 0; i < posts.length; ++i) {
    if (/smallwhite/.test(posts[i].innerHTML)) {
        posts[i].setAttribute('style', 'display: none;');
    }
}

Obviously, you'll need to replace /smallwhite/ with the name of the user that you want to hide. (To hide multiple users separate the user names with pipe symbols. (I can't give you an example, because the forum software will delete them.)

Note that this quick and dirty script will also hide your own threads if the last post was written by the user that you want to hide!!!

I don't even have the free time for all the other programming projects I'd like to work on. This wouldn't make top billing on my personal todo list. ;)

Not wanting to prioritize something high enough to do oneself isn't a disqualification from wanting to be able to enjoy using a thing, IMO. :)

Is there a way of finding out how many people have added me to their "foe list"?? :lol: :lol:

No, the mods can't even see anyone's foe list, let alone some kind of summary :)
