Down the bottom of 'Look and Layout':
 'Show quick-moderation as [Checkboxes]v'

That turns it on then you get the checkboxes with an ignore button at the top on topic lists.

I think ignore topics only works if you select "show unread posts since last visit", it is on top left of the forum home page below your avatar. There you will find the ignore topics check box.

Exactly.

I'm only ignoring a few, but it's a few that now don't show up in the "unread posts" however I'm now taking to marking those that might be ignored as "read" but the do show up again with another reply.
For ignoring long term, the ignore topics function is the way to go.  :)

Although some interesting points have been made it has zero electronics content and close to zero technology content, and clearly breeches rule 5.

I actually disagree that only electronic threads should be considered worthy, this forum is uniquely international, and international views of other countries are very interesting.

Granted that a lot of views are going to be controversial, but so what.
Personally I had hoped for Bretix to have considered the post WWII historical influences on the EU, as I feel they have directly created a number of social issues that will lead to its destruction.

But it appears everyone would rather discuss economics  :=\

I cannot find that selection. Is this the home page you refer to?  https://www.eevblog.com/forum/index.php

This is what I see in that home page

Nope, you missed the little arrow on the top right corner.
Click that to expand the top of the page that will reveal you avatar etc.
Then you should be able to access the tabs you need.

I've recently ignored a topic just to test this feature. But now I want to know if there is any gossip going on in my ignored topic. Indeed I've even forgotten what topic I am ignoring but feel I am missing out on something.

Can we have a 'Show new replies to your ignored topics.' option?  :-DD ;)

Why does this incredibly simple solution seem to elude so many people?

Because:


Sometimes for one's own sanity, one needs an actual ignore button on the web page.

Having made the decision once I prefer to leave it at that and not have to repeat it. Apparently my brain is not a "good old Mark-One, Mod A Brain". Even having ignored the topic I sometimes get curious to see if it goes as I expected. Invariably it does but even that isn't sufficient to stop me.

I understand, it takes a little effort sometimes to not look...
Sometimes looking but not acting is the best path.
There are lots of things in this world that upset me. Some threads here are included.
I walked away from the Hillery thread after I said my piece.. I didn't bother with the Brexit thread. A thread over on another forum about our Independence Day had a comment made by someone in the UK that I found offencive, and I said my piece and moved on. What he or anybody else in that thread had to say I was not concerned with, though I did look at a few posts, but did not act. 

All in All this place is one of the most well mannered places on the Internet.
People here are very respectful of others, more than many other places.

I was only joking about the checking ignored topics. I really hope you guys are just trolling about actually going back and checking them...  :scared:

What would be nice, is a way of dropping a thread you have participated in from your unread replies page if you have decided to walk away from it without needing to ignore the whole topic.

There are parts of mine where the magic smoke was let out, but it is still mostly functional.  :popcorn:

Mine too.  It keeps powering down every night and takes several hours to come back online.  I might try changing the caps.

Don,t know where to put this else since there seems not to be a forum board.

I get continuously a 502 bad gateway error screens on my mobile if I press the "Show new replies to your posts" line in the left top box.
The problem is that it translates to:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/unreadreplies/
And it should be
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/unreadreplies

Can someone fix this please?

The difference in the URLs is not causing the 502 problem.  Those URLs are handled identically by the server.
