Lack of interest [Suggestion] Show notice of quoted ignored member instead of suppressing


Well-known member
To clarify that title a bit... if you are reading a post by a user who quoted something by a user that you are ignoring then the suggestion is to include a notice (eg: "Quote by ignored member") instead of suppressing the quote entirely.

The reason for this suggestion can be seen in the attached screen shot. At first glance it would appear that Brogan is being a bit brusque with either erich37 or Rigel but really he was responding to a totally different user. :coffee:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> bb_code_tag_quote

Add the red code:

<xen:require css="bb_code.css" />

<xen:comment><!-- content is escaped via parser --></xen:comment>

<xen:if is="{$ignored}">
	<ul class="messageNotices" style="margin-left: 0px;">
		<li style="list-style: none;">Quote by ignored member. <a href="javascript:" class="jsOnly DisplayIgnoredContent">{xen:phrase show_ignored_content}</a></li>

<div class="bbCodeBlock bbCodeQuote{xen:if $ignored, ' ignored'}"{xen:if $nameHtml, ' data-author="{$nameHtml}"'}>
		<xen:if is="{$nameHtml}">
			<div class="attribution type">{xen:phrase x_said, 'name={xen:raw $nameHtml}'}:
				<xen:if is="{$source}">
					<a href="{xen:link 'goto/{$source.type}', '', 'id={$source.id}'}#{$source.type}-{$source.id}" class="AttributionLink">&uarr;</a>
		<blockquote>{xen:raw $content}</blockquote>

Replying so I remember to include edit.

I actually remember that thread and remember the exact same content, I obviously ignored that same user and am only now getting the bigger picture, @Kevin I am not going to ask how long you hold onto screenshots but instead say thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, Thanks Jake for the workaround.
