Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are wiling to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Milts & Shallots would be an exception. Ask any rov that's ever been to these places.

There was an "ignore" option. I don't see it anymore

yes!
And when I changed from "checkboxes" to "don't show", they went away.

When I followed your path: DansDeals.com Forums DansDeals Forum Trip Reports
I have the same.  Boxes with no option to ignore.
I just checked the other main topics for the forums.  Same.
When I'm on: DansDeals.com Forums Updated Topics
or: DansDeals.com Forums Recent Unread Topics
I have the option to ignore.


Maybe SM doesn't have the ability to ignore topics from the forum main topics.

My guess is that when you are on the recent unread topics page, you are able to ignore because these are topics you chose to be notified of. This wouldn't apply when you access the topic through the main page.

Thank you!
So it seems like you can only ignore it from the Show unread posts since last visit or Show new replies to your posts. which would only be before you read the thread. After you read it, seems like you need to wat till there is an unread post to ignore.
