xkcd Thread Muter - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot


A way to mute certain forum threads, hiding them from thread lists as well as making the thread posts themselves nearly transparent.

This extension is specific to the xkcd forums ([forums, fora].xkcd.com). It provides the equivalent of "foe" functionality for threads (rather than users). Individual threads can be muted, after which they will not show up in a forum's thread list (nor will they show up in egosearch or thread searches). If going directly to the URL of a muted thread, the posts in that thread will be faded to 10% opacity. To mute a thread, simply click the speaker icon that shows up on the right side of the address bar when viewing that thread. (Clicking it again will unmute the thread.) (Note: Posts in muted threads will still show up in post search results.) ======= New in 1.0.4 ======= - Fixed a bug with manifest v2. ======= New in 1.0.2 ======= - Option to only hide threads from egosearch, not from other places and no fading.
