How can I hide forums that are not interesting for me? Somebody mentioned this possibility this week, but I can't remember who it was.

And, I couldn't find anything about this in the FAQs. Therefore, your help is very much appreciated.

Well, perhaps it's not so easy... Sep 15, 2011

If I click here: http://www.proz.com/forum?cat_group=translation, then I can set the forums to 'Off', 'Topics' and 'Posts'.

But, where is the 'hide' button?

Go to your profile, choose
>Settings >"Other settings"> Select forums to be listed on the homepage

This should work.

Cheers,

Hi johanna,

If I click the tab 'settings' on my profile, then I only see 'Other settings' under 'Unsubscribe'. I don't really want to try this.

Well, it's late and I've almost finished my Merlot, so thank you and:

Cheers!

Marina

Hello Marina,

I think it's not possible to "hide" forums, but you can choose forums to be listed on the homepage and to be tracked, as Johanna says.

Go under
Member activities > Forums > Forum settings (on the right)

then click on "Homepage forums";


or click here: http://www.proz.com/dashboard/forum/?sp_forum_mode=homepage_forums ;

or go on your profile and under "Settings" click on "Forum dashboard" (on the left).

These forums will be listed under "Recent translation forum posts".

HTH

Emanuela
