Ignore User option for Firefox browser

Postby Nat Fairbanks » Tue May 24, 2005 10:45 pm

For those people that use the Firefox browser, and want phpBB to have an "ignore user" option, there is now a way to get that functionality. If you install the Greasemonkey extension you can use this script to add a link next to a user name which allows you to always blank out the text box from that user.

I only recommend using this if you are comfortable with Firefox and it's extensions. Greasemonkey seems to be a great tool, but I haven't personally tested it much.

This option is becoming very attractive now that RFTO1111 has discovered youtube.

What would I need to do to get the IGNORE option on the IE Browser? It's on another forum I frequent that is similar in format to this one but I don't see a choice on this fourm.....

Thanks....

I have no idea, it's possible they have installed an optional module in their forum that provides this. However that makes it more difficult to keep the foum updated security wise.

On the other Forum it's a flag in the PROFILE section:

Friend:
Ignore:
E-mail address:
Private Message:

ICQ Number:
AIM Address:
Yahoo Messenger:
MSN Messenger:


You can also find it in the message area for each post where the "PM", "AIM", "WWW" section is.
