bbPress Ignore User


Users can maintain their own personal ignore user list which is used to hide any posts or topics from that user.
While viewing a topic, the current user can ignore any of the reply authors by clicking an ‘Ignore User’ link under/near the author name. This adds the author to the user’s ignore list.
On the user’s profile, the author can remove entries to their ignore list.

The user can forcibly show all ignored posts or topics by viewing the topic or forum with ?show_ignored_users applied to the url (a link to show all posts and topics is given when posts are hidden).

Users who can moderate the forum cannot be ignored by any members and members cannot ignore themselves.


  • Ignore/Unignore User link on the author side of a reply post.
  • Topics hidden from listing.
  • Ignore list can be maintained on the user's profile.


  1. Make sure you have bbPress 2.0 (or better) plugin activated.
  2. Upload bbpress-ignore-users folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
