Advanced filtering

Unlock the full potential of your feed with advanced content filtering options based on content categories.

What are the advanced filtering options?

Why settle for basic filtering based on tags when you can have more control over your feed? Sometimes, posts may contain tags that you follow, but the content might not be exactly what you're looking for. That's where configuring your feed based on content categories can come in handy, as content categories are treated separately from the tags you follow.

Configure your content categories

Click on the "My Feed" filter button to open the feed options menu, as shown below:

Choose "Advanced" from the feed filters menu, as illustrated below:
