    This is no biggie and doesn't really matter if it isn't implemented, but it would be nice if threads whose newest post is a blocked user didn't show up in new posts.

    I'm talking about the new posts page and what-not. If the last poster is an ignored user, then it probably shouldn't be bumped up until at-least a visible user makes a new post, if that makes sense.

    Well, it already completely removes people's posts from threads, might as-well go all the way lol

    Agreed, the point of ignore is to not see a specific user. It's actually a feature to help people take accountability to avoid conflict. Having people in your ignore list in recent threads doesn't make that much sense, but it's a MyBB flaw.

    Then again all that would need to happen is a small query adjustment to not include threads if their last post is from a user on the ignore list. The issue though is that it would actually be a little bit more resource intensive because a user's ignore list is in a separate table. It wouldn't be too crazy, but would cause new posts to load a little slower due to the amount of analyzing that already occurs.

    Could put the number of ignored people on the users table, so if it's zero, then it's zero cost.

    Better yet, give the username of last poster an ID attribute and then the cookie of logged in user can include ignore list. Then could use this to hide both replies and new threads and reduce DB queries even more for all

    Go to the forum you don't want to see in your notifications.

    Click on Watch Forum, which is located near the Post New Thread button in the upper right hand corner of the forum display.

    Click on "Don't send notifications" and deselect "Alerts".

    Click the Watch Forum button.

    This should take care of this issue.

    Good advice although I think you've got this thread mixed up with https://forumpromotion.net/forum/threads/exclude-forums-from-new-posts.160676/

    If an ignored user post can not be seen in any content then topics will be confessing, ignored user will be ignored but not to fully not see there content posted

    Ignored users are already completely hidden from topics like that when you view one in XenForo. You'e welcome to test it out momentarily to see what I mean, if I'm not wording it quite right.

    However, they still show up in places like https://forumpromotion.net/forum/find-new/posts if they are the last poster, which is a spot people probably regularly look at to see if something new has happened.
