Dismissing a single Topic without reading it


#1

Hello,

as the title says: is it possible to dismiss certain topics in my “latest” list without reading them?

Thanks in advance


#2

I think down below on the right side.There is Dismiss new topics and Dismiss unread topics

Or you go to the topic and from Tracking you make it Regural


#3

I think that dismiss new button gets rid of all the new topics, and it seems like the OP is asking about removing specific ones


#4

Yeah maybe not sure aswell.So just go to that topic and from Tracking it make it Regural.That way you will only be notified if only someone mentions your name


#5

i dont want to enter ps4 or xbox specific topics at all.


#6

On the bottom of each topic you can choose to mute a topic, like this:


#7

Wait you mean if someone makes a new thread about ps4 or xbox you don’t even want it to appear in your list?


#8

Here you go.In Preferances from your profile go down there and find the PS4/XBOX categories and mute them.


#9

I think the problem is that currently we don’t yet have specific categories for consoles, so we can’t ignore them as a group


#10

No. i want to have a button in my “Latest” list, on the side of every topic: dismiss THIS ONE ONLY. or “mark as read” like in other forums.
i dont want to dismiss all topics and i dont want to enter a single topic, sometimes i look a few minutes on the forum and am working through the list. i do not open topics that do not spark my interest. so they stay there until i press “dismiss new” that gets confusing after reading the title 4 times.


#11

I’d say just let all of them unread for some days and then go to New and dismiss all of them together.Because there is no button yet


#12

that would be like when using Outlook and reading your emails, you have to either read all of them at once or mark them all together as read. thats a pity.


#13

New topics only appear as new topics for 2 days be default. If a new topic appears which you ignore for 2 days it will go away by itself. The only other way is to enter the topic, go strait to the bottom and change its tracking to muted.


#14

You could simply enter, then instantly back out. Takes a second or two and gets rid of the new topic.

No other way, I’m afraid.


#15

that is exactly what i did not want to. as i said, it is like opening spam mails in your email client just to mark them as read.

thanks anyway, guys :slight_smile:

If you wanted to you could probably make a topic over on https://meta.discourse.org, it’s the forum/main site for the forum type TRS uses.
They talk a lot more about how to use the forum, and the people who read it are far more likely to actually do something to help you
