Omit Professional Guides and Blogs from New Posts?


Recommended Posts

AHunter3

My habit is to log on to a URL that automatically fetches the new posts and read the ones that interest me.  In the modern incarnation of FmCafe I log on to "New Activity" / "Unread Posts".

 

THE PROBLEM:  Here's what the list looks like at the moment:

-------------------------

With the exception of Ross Maclaine's post about the Developer Subscription offered for free and the thread titled "Someone tried it?", every one of these is a professional developer's tutorial / blog post.  

With all due respect to MonkeybreadSoftware (I'm a happy customer of the MBS plugin myself) and beeswax and the others....I'm not particularly interested in those.  Is there a way that I can get a "New Activity"  / "Unread Posts" listing that leaves out the professionals' tutorials and blogs?

Hey Alan...I know how much you ❤ this software...here is how you do it:

  1. On the main menu: click on ACTIVITY
  2. The menu will drop down and you will see MY ACTIVITY STREAMS click on it
  3. Look for NEW TOPICS and you have what you want

Just so you know I am not in love with IBP either.

Be Safe - Take Care

I don't seem to have NEW TOPICS as an available choice:

Damn...this software drives me nuts! Go to CONTENT | POSTED IN then set it up the way you want to. Don't forget to name it NEW TOPICS or MY STUFF.... whatever you want. This works...

Would it be possible to feed those blog posts into the "Blogs" portion of the forum software? They can still show in the activity feed, but they are easy to filter out.

No luck yet.

 

I created a custom view but the pro developer blog posts are posted IN the regular forums so they're still the overwhelming majority of what comes up when I run that "view".

Yeah. Hopefully Ross can make that change. The change he recommended would only show you stuff you already participated in. Which, I don't believe, is what you were going for.

Correct.  I want stuff I haven't already read, but omitting the pros' blog posts.
