ANNOUNCEMENT New Function Available - Revamped Mute Functions (Hide interactions between specific users, more)


Staff member
I posted a thread a few days ago but had to pull it because there were some glitches due to the complexity of how it was done. So I ended up starting over and revamping this over the last couple of nights and it now works much better, along with being far more straightforward.

The mute functionality is now expanded, but it's now done with just one click of the original button.

Now, when you click the "Mute" button, you'll see the following where you can select a few options:

Here is how this works:

1) This post by (username) - Self-explanatory. You can hide a particular single post if you don't wish to see it.

2) Hide the entire interaction and future interactions between these two users in this thread.

So let's pretend you have an exchange like this below:

You can select this option and it would mute those two users for the remainder of the thread:
One quick note, when you hit the button, the single block you click will vanish but when you refresh the screen - they'll all be gone. As will any future interaction between the two within the thread.

3) (Username) in this thread - works like the previous iteration, where posts by that user will be hidden throughout the thread. One change is that it now also hides any posts containing replies to that user, making them completely invisible throughout the thread.

Just a quick FYI - this option supersedes any of the other two options, so it will override any other selections this user has been selected in.

These are controlled at the top just like previously, where you can select/deselect them:

I've tested it locally as well as on here in some complicated situations in various long threads and everything appears to be good, but let me know if any of you spot issues. In the meantime, this should solve a lot of problems and definitely gives a much better level of control to everyone moving forward :cool:

OMG, that second option is gold.
Yeah, still sort of can't believe I got it all working, but that second option definitely makes it a pretty useful feature. Probably one of the cooler things I've come up with and put together in the last couple of years so I'm definitely happy with how this came out :)

UPDATED: 3/4: Two additional options have been added.


You can now mute someone forum-wide and it will completely remove them. This will hide their posts and/or interactions in other threads. It works the exact same way it does in a normal thread mute. You just won't have to select it as you move around in each thread.

You can select them here:

However, you will see threads they start, which will appear as normal. But if you click on the thread, they won't be there. You also won't see any of the posts replying to them, so it's basically like they won't exist no matter what thread you're in.

(This not only hides the user's posts but also blocks them from seeing your posts.)

The next option is the ability to block a user using the "Forum Block." This not only completely removes that user across the board the way the Forum Mute does, but it also blocks them from being able to see your posts.

Not only that, but it will also hide all of your quoted replies - even to other users - from them and vice-versa, so it's literally like you won't exist to them, and they won't exist to you.

Still, as mentioned above, you will see threads they start, but nothing they post/reply to will be visible. Nor will they be able to read your posts or the replies by anyone else to you.

One other note - if you add any users to any type of forum-wide mute, another button will pop up in the upper right, which will allow you to see who you're blocking outside of a normal thread-mute:


If you toggle that main button (the one outlined), it will also show/hide any posts by those users if there are any within the thread you're viewing.

Also, I made a small update where when you toggle this button (shown below, the red button with the user count), it now shows/hides any posts on the page you're viewing within that thread that could be hidden:
