Hiding or muting specific topics (from a category)


Is it possible with Discourse to hide a whole topic from being displayed (in a category listing)?

For instance let’s say I join a discourse instance where people discuss merits of various pets. And someday someone creates a “Punk Ducks” topic. And I know I’ll never be interested in ducks, not to mention punk ducks. Never ever. Period. Is there a way to selectively say “this topic and all the replies, thank you but I don’t want to hear about it any more”?

You can mute a topic by clicking on the Topic Notifications Options button that appears at the bottom of a topic. When a topic is muted you will not receive notifications about the topic, and it will be hidden from the /latest listings for you.


The notification control also appears at the right hand side under the timeline, you do not need to scroll to bottom to utilize it.

Thanks for the prompt reply :bowing_man:

At first I overlooked the button called “Normal”.
