Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When the Interesting/Ignored tags feature was first added, the preference to hide questions was in the sidebar.

I liked this, since most of the time I don't mind the questions just being greyed out.. but there are times I want them hidden. Having it enabled all the time seems quite.. destructive (from my view as a user - obviously it doesn't actually delete anything)

Current I have to go into my profile, into my settings, click the option and navigate back to the page and reload, just to toggle this..

Seems quite a lot of clicks, especially given that the questions are hidden using Javascript (if I'm not mistaken)..

That was easier than I thought! Hurray for jQuery.

The following are bookmarklets. Make a new bookmark (in your toolbar), give it a name and change the URL to the javascript: code

SO/Hide Ignored

Hides any questions with ignored tags.


SO/Only Interesting

Only shows questions with interesting tags


SO/Show All
