Relatively straightforward one, we filter out one category from our latest view due to the sheer volume of posts which are filed under it.
AFAIK the method we use to filter,
Latest,-News, is the correct/supported way to do it.
When new articles are posted to that filtered category however, Discourse continues to indicate that there are new posts at the top with the ‘1 new or updated topic, click to show’ message. This obviously confuses users, as clicking on the notification row doesn’t reveal new/updated posts.
