The functionality described below is not working for me - even in a forum application.
I meant to add previously but depending on your need it may be better to moderate the user, mark them as unapproved and/or delete the account.
The hide user's content filter doesn't take effect for the replies in the threaded reply area nor inside the activity stream.
Thanks for getting back with me! So that I'm clear, the "Hide this member's content from other members" checkbox should hide users' replies, but does not currently work on version 10.0.2.5303, correct? Does it work on any of the newer versions? JennFeltis
Taylor, your understanding is correct. This functionality did hide both threads and user replies prior to 10.x. That said, it would still not hide activity story messages or any other types of content.
There are no currently released versions of 10.x where this works correctly. I know this is currently marked for improvement but is not presently scheduled as it requires some overhaul to make it truly effective.
I'm adding Ben Tiedt to this reply in case he had additional information to add.
