Muting forum category not working


#1

I have the Trading category muted in Preferences/Notifications/Categories but Trading posts are still showing up in the Latest list.

Hi @RobJF

I scoured the Discourse pages, and its not a setting that we can change on the back end.
So I found that “muting a category” = muted categories do not appear in the “new” or “latest” tabs (unless you explicitly started tracking a topic in that category)

So there may be a topic within the Trading category that you are tracking?

Thanks @maki.mukai, I forgot that though I’m not keen on the category generally I did start a topic there recently, I guess that’s the reason. Sorry to take up your time on this but my memory is not what it used to be! :persevere:

No worries! Glad I could help :grin:

BTW, for anyone who’s interested, it’s not just the topic I started that’s showing despite the mute, it’s apparently all topics in that category.
