The "How To" Thread

How to Ignore a Thread:

In the thread column, there is a little box with an 'x' in it (just before the thread starter column) If you see a thread that doesn't interest you (whether it's the topic, the thread creator, or you want to save space), click the 'x' box. A pop-up will ask "Are you sure you want to ignore this thread?" Click ok.

To undo a thread ignore: Click on User CP. In the left column under Settings & Options, click on Ignored Threads. That will bring you to a page that shows which threads you are ignoring. To stop ignoring a thread, click on [Stop Ignoring This Thread]. You'll be directed to another page that says, "You have removed this thread from your ignore list." and then the thread will be removed from your ignored threads list.

How to Ignore a User:

If you want to ignore every post by a user, you can do so a number of ways.

In a thread: Click on the user name of the user you want to ignore, the drop-down will have a number of options. The last option should be "Add to Ignore List." Click on that and you'll be brought to a confirmation page. Click yes to ignore the user.

In User CP: Click on User CP. Under Settings & Options, click on "Edit Ignore List" (directly under "Ignored Threads"). You can add a member to your ignore list by copying/pasting the user name or typing in the user name. You can also remove users from the ignore list here.

Note: You will still see the ignored user's quoted posts when somebody quotes one of their posts.

How to Multi-Quote in a Thread:

When you want to quote multiple posts in a thread, click on the "multi" button on the post. It won't take you anywhere so you are free to browse the thread and quote additional posts using the "multi" button. When the "multi" is clicked on, it will get the same red mark the "quote" and "quick" buttons already have.

When you have all the posts you want to quote, click on the "reply" button at the bottom left of the thread. This will bring you to the "Reply to Thread" screen and you can respond to multiple posts all at once.

How to Report a Post:

The report post button is on every post on HF. If you see a post that breaks any of the site rules, you can report it to the moderators by clicking on it. The report post button can be found under the user name in a post.

If you have any questions about this thread, or additional suggestions to put in this thread, PM me.
