Hi!

There are a few topics that I receive notifications for in "Show new replies to your posts.". I'd like to unsubscribe from them. How would I do that?

You can "ignore" the topic (until your ignore list is full), or you can delete the posts you made in the topic.

(Ooops, sorry I forgot this extra enable step for the ignore button, it's been a long time.  Thanks to tautech for pointing this out originally!)

The syntax to enable this is:

Profile>Modify Profile>Look and Layout>Show quick-moderation as: Checkboxes

Then UPDATE PROFILE

You will then have a Ignore Topic checkbox in your "Show new replies tor your posts" page.

Do you mean search in the browser? Yes, don't see it. I even disabled adblocker. I understand that I miss something obvious, but I can't find it.

You don't want to ignore topics but disable the notifications, look here: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/profile/?area=notification

While in the "Show new replies to your posts." list, look at the right side,  there must be radio button at every threads you subscribed, click the one you want to stop subscribing, then look up, you will find a button named "IGNORE TOPICS".

Yes, but if you ignore topics they will not show up ever again, I think he just wants to stop the notifications.

I have the same issue with the "What did you buy today" thread, which I made the mistake of replying to years ago.  I don't want to turn off all notifications, just the one for that thread.  And I don't want to ignore that thread, just stop it from showing up in "Replies to your posts" every day.  I concluded it wasn't possible to do that, but had not considered deleting my post to that thread (if the board would let me do that after all this time).

The way I read it is that OP doesn't want the topics to appear in the "Show new replies to your posts" list.  OP, can you clarify?

OK, that's the Ignore Topics feature Dave added a few years back:

Yes, correct.

Thank you all for helping, now I get it: I needed to enable this feature. I think somehow I missed from the first answer the instruction how to enable it. Or, may be, it was edited after I saw it.

There really should be a simple button to press that cancels further notifications for a given thread, both in email and in "Show new replies to your posts," without tying it to any global forum settings or (mis)using the Ignore feature.  :palm:
