Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Mute » Feature request

  • Henry- I have another feature request that would be a HUGE benefit to my site: The ability to mute everything from a muted members, all top level posts as well as replies & comments.

    Due to the nature of my forum, with a lot of diverging opinions, things can get heated. I’ve had multiple requests from members to modify the Mute function to hide all replies, comments, etc.. from those muted.

    Some of my forum members that are muted by others have learned to either comment or reply to someone that has Muted them (and they are aware of it) or even go so far as to post a top level comment & tag the person that is muting them (@username) to make sure they will see their post so they can drag them into an argument.

    Do you think it would be feasible for you to either extend to the Mute function to comments & replies or possible make that an optional setting for BuddyPress users, leaving the default as is? (or maybe an admin option in the plugin settings).

    Hi jaco44!

    I think I’d like to avoid muting activity replies. Please see my post here for an explanation why.

    Mute isn’t intended to be a blocking mechanism. For example, public mentions and private messaging is still possible after muting a person. I think some kind of blocking plugin will suit your need here.

    I understand, thanks for the quick reply Henry. I have read your explanation in the link above & even shared it on my site for my users

    If you (or anyone here) is aware of a plugin that would allow BP users to block all posts & commentary from another user please let me know. Thx.
