How do I hide just the "HOT META POSTS". I don't intend to engage much in the moderation of Stack Exchange sites, so most of the content is irrelevant to me, how do I hide it?

I looked into just adding a user style sheet filter based on the id or class of that element, but then the whole community-bulletin box gets hidden, which might hide important site level messages/broadcasts.

Specially since the DOM structure of the "HOT META POSTS" is not different than the "FEATURED ON META" section, i.e. both use same classes and no id is provided.


Your idea is good, but you'll need a general sibling combinator for the CSS to work as intended. Sadly, we need to select based on the content as well, because there are sites where/times when there are no Featured On Meta posts (e.g Ask Ubuntu right now) so we can't rely on it not being the first title. That means a user stylesheet won't work, but we can resort to a userscript:

// ==UserScript==
// @name        Hide Hot Meta Posts
// @match       *://*.stackexchange.com/*
// @match       *://*.stackoverflow.com/*
// @match       *://*.superuser.com/*
// @match       *://*.serverfault.com/*
// @match       *://*.askubuntu.com/*
// @match       *://*.stackapps.com/*
// @match       *://*.mathoverflow.net/*
// @exclude     *://chat.stackexchange.com/*
// @exclude     *://chat.meta.stackexchange.com/*
// @exclude     *://chat.stackoverflow.com/*
// @exclude     *://blog.stackoverflow.com/*
// @exclude     *://*.area51.stackexchange.com/*
// @grant none
// ==/UserScript==

(function () {
  $("div.bulletin-title:contains(Hot Meta Posts), div.bulletin-title:contains(Hot Meta Posts) ~ hr, div.bulletin-title:contains(Hot Meta Posts) ~ div").hide();

  • :contains is not yet added to css I guess. – Mohd Abdul Mujib Jun 19 '18 at 0:26

    Yeah, this is not valid CSS. That pseudo-selector only exists in jQuery. It has never been supported by an official CSS standard and afaik has never been implemented by any browser. – animuson Jun 19 '18 at 1:38
