[paidaccount] [gradient strip] Hiding particular users' posts on the Friends page
howto_user wrote in s2howto
Paid Accounts Only
The following tutorial requires creating and editing a custom style, which in turn requires a paid, permanent, or early adopter account. Please read What are the paid account benefits? and How do I buy a paid account? to learn about the paid account benefits and how to buy a paid account.

This tutorial requires the creation of a theme layer. If you already have a theme layer, you will need to edit it and add the code below. If you do not have a theme layer, you will need to create one by following the instructions in the Theme Layer tutorial.

In the Gradient Strip layout, you can add a Usenet-style "killfile" to your Friends page by overriding the FriendsPage::print_body function. This will allow you to hide entries from particular users when viewing your Friends page.

You can add a killfile to your Friends page by using the following code:

function FriendsPage::print_body {
   var string kill_list = " exampleusername1 exampleusername2 exampleusername3 ";
   foreach var Entry e ($.entries) {
     if (not $kill_list->contains(" $e.poster.username ")) {

Replace exampleusername1, exampleusername2, and exampleusername3 with the names of users whose entries you wish to hide. You can include fewer or more than three usernames, but be sure to keep a space between the usernames.

Once you have finished adding the code above, you can save your theme layer by clicking on the "Save & Compile" button at the top of the screen. Your changes will not take effect until you apply your theme layer by selecting it on the Customize Journal page.
