We have a number of categories that are private because we don’t want activity in those categories to affect the rest of the activity in the site. These private categories are topic specific and shouldn’t be visible to other members who didn’t choose to join the discussion.
Because of the recent bugs with the invitation links, we might consider to temporarily open these categories instead of keeping them private; however, we can’t do that unless there is a way to keep the activity in these categories ‘muted’ from the rest of the site i.e. new posts and topics should not appear in the top, recent, or latest pages/columns.
Please, is there a way to keep activity in certain categories off from the rest of the site (latest, top…etc)?
Thanks! It might be a temporary solution until the invitation links bugs are fixed.
I need to make sure the categories will not appear in the category list and in the homepage…etc Is there a reference for this feature? update: First test, the sub-category still appears in the list of categories as well in the homepage even after adding it to ‘default categories muted.’
