Ignore a thread.
« on: Sunday 07 October 18 22:37 BST (UK) »
I'm having trouble locating the check box for ignoring new replies to a thread. I'm told it is there, but I'm either being very stupid or it's not there. Anyone able to help?

You want the NOTIFY box.

Unfortunately you still see it as new replies, but you dont get emails about it.

I use the Unread Posts listing  and then click the ignore box  opposite the relevant thread reply. 

I don't think you can ignore otherwise.

To avoid confusion, that image was just for illustration purposes! I have nothing against that particular thread.

Is it a thread that you posted on?

Thanks Gadget. On your screenshot, I can see the checkboxes, but I don't see them on my screen. This screenshot is of my Unread Posts screen

Hallmark - yes.

There's something about it here, Mike

I remember that the boxes weren't showing for me originally.  Not sure if I did something with my Account settings.

Have you had a look at your Account settings in your profile.  There's and Ignore topics option on the left hand list.  Maybe you have to activate it. I don't want to experiment with mine as I have a whole list of ignore topics.
