I’m working on a project in in which there will be a ton of categories, but I only want categories that users follow to show up in categories/latest view for them, while maintaining the ability of the users to view those categories when linked directly.
ie. User gets cat 1 and cat 2 in their latest/categories, but can only see cat 3 if they follow a direct link. User 2 sees cat 2, but can only see cat 1 and cat 3 if they follow a direct link. etc
The way I see it, I need to either modify the existing subscribe ability, or add a new one, and then modify the categories/latest
Just looking for general advice for the best approach to this problem via a plugin or dirty hacky antics before I dive in.
