I would like to have a category-level filter view that works the way topics do. We have a significant amount of categories. For site performance, we need to have most of them muted with the
mute all categories by default option. The problem is now that we don’t have a good way to find the forums. Many are specialized. Having a non-muted view would improve discoverability. The problem now is the way muting works the subcategories are hidden from the main page, and all category descriptions are hidden.
As an example, you can view all topics you’ve muted through
It would be great if a user could access a list of muted categories the same way, perhaps something like
Ideally, we could have an option for it to be added to
top menu in the settings as well. But I’d settle for a link I could include in an announcement post in the unmuted watched-first announcements forum.
As you can see from the above screenshot, there is no way to know there are subcategories at all. An alternative of course is to create a manual index, but that’s… a pretty inefficient way to do this. Outside of the regional categories we have roughly 70 or so? Something like that. I really, really don’t want to manually write that list for an index.
