Blocking tags and sources

Customizing your feed has never been easier, but sometimes there are specific tags or sources that you simply don't want to see. That's where blocking comes in handy.

Watch this quick overview video to quickly understand how to block sources and tags for a more tailored feed experience.

How does blocking work?

Blocking empowers you to:

  1. Remove all posts that contain a specific tag : Say goodbye to unwanted content by blocking specific tags that don't interest you.
  2. Remove all posts that come from a specific source : Keep your feed free from content from specific sources that you don't prefer.

Please note that blocking is only applied to posts displayed in your "My Feed" feed. It does not affect content in the Popular, Most Upvoted, or Best Discussions feeds.

To make the most out of the blocking features, be sure to set up your personal feed. Customize your experience to suit your preferences and enjoy a curated feed tailored just for you.

Blocking tags and sources from the feed

Blocking tags and sources can be done directly from the feed. Whenever you see a post with a tag/source you wish to block, click on the more options button (⋮) (1)

Options button located top right of a post card (1)
  • To block a tag: Choose “Not interested in (tag_name)“ (2)
  • To block a source: Choose "Don't show posts from (source_name)" (3)
Options menu open highlighting three "not interested in" tags (2) and one "Dont show posts from" (3)

Once clicked, the blocked tags and sources will be removed from your feed.

You will also see a toast notification confirming you have blocked a tag or source.

If you have blocked a tag or source by mistake you can click "Undo" in the toast to reverse the action.


If you can't find a post from a specific tag or source you wish to block, try using the search feature.
