The ignore function is all very good, but as soon as you,ve logged in, you can see the posts of the person you were trying to ignore.

I don't know what this means.

I've discovered that someone I had put on ignore before we lost that feature, has now gone back on ignore without me taking any new action at all. I can see that this person has posted, but I can't see the text of the posts--just the way it worked when we formerly had this feature.

Yes - should be able to see the posts but not the text - just the name and a blank box.

Artiste - people can easily unignore someone if it is a mistake - and it won't be that ther person will think - hey that person hasn't posted in ages - they'll clearly see in threads that that person has posted bt just no what the person has written. It takes only one click of a button to unignore someone.

I can see that the person has posted if I,m NOT logged in, but as soon as I do log in, I can read whatever is they have written. So in that sense the ignore function makes no difference, I can still read it. I have to log out, so I CAN,T read it. It should function in such a way, that as soon as you click ignore, you can,t see what that person has written, wether your logged in or not.

souxi - it shouldn't do this - did you put the person on ignore when you were not logged in and its ignoring them as if you were a guest?

I would try when you are logged into to redo the ignore and see what happens - if that doesn't work - PM Phillip who can work it out for you.  :-*

The ignore feature is configured by your account settings.  I am not 100% clear on what you are saying here.  If you are logged out, you will be able to see the ignored person's posts because the system will assume you are a guest.  When you log-in, your ignore preferences should work.  I can't see the software ignoring someone if you are completely logged out (the top of the forum will say you are a guest and you'll get the registration nag bar at the top).  This feature doesn't use cookies, so there is no way for it to work except when you are logged in.  You can remain permanently "logged in" by checking the box to stay logged in.  It doesn't mean the site will show you as online 24/7, it just keeps your name and password registered in a cookie so you don't have to enter it each time you come back to the site.
