Missing Forum!

I saw a post from what appears to be the Plusnet Blogs forum, I’ve searched for said forum but can’t find it. Yes I know what you’re going to say and that’s my point, I don’t want to see this junk in my feed. If I want to read the blogs I’ll click the appropriate link.

Re: Missing Forum!

blog posts will appear in the unread feed on the homepage. The homepage unread feed is for the entire community and the blog falls under that.

Re: Missing Forum!

That's all well and good @jaread83, but I am seeing these using this link, and as you can see makes a distinct reference to the forums unread posts so being [-Censored-] I should not see these Blog post entries.

Re: Missing Forum!

He means that the link you sent is the unread page for the entire community. Blog posts count as being part of the community and they are not a seperate system. Blog posts will show up in the unread feed if you have chosen to view the unread feed for the entire community.

Re: Missing Forum!

OK I see what you’re saying @jaread83, but I was working on the assumption that as the Blog Posts are in a distinct area and there is no forum with that title that they would not be included using a URL that only references forums.

So with that said is there anyway that I can exclude these from my feed, as my original point still stands.

Re: Missing Forum!

You can't hide the blog posts on a per user basis. I might be able to hide all of the blog posts from other feeds at a global level but I don't know how this would affect the blog itself or if the community team would want this to happen. I will do a bit of experimentation and see what happens - if it doesn't impact too much i will ask if i can implement it.

Re: Missing Forum!

@Mook, I can only hide blog posts from the 'recent' feeds but they will always show up in the unread feed (at the top community level).

Re: Missing Forum!

No worries, I gave it a shot. The 'unread' feeds are technically supposed to be a level deeper than they are but when I created the front page I want it to be more like a dashboard for everything on one page. I don't like the idea of having to click through to multiple pages before getting to something that could easily have been shown on the homepage.

Re: Missing Forum!

Hmmm!  A bit of a conundrum here?  I share @Mook dislike of the Community Blog posts appearing at Forum 'unread posts' link level, equally I can see why 'The mysterious powers that be'  would want to have it included.
