Something I have been meaning to do for some time is finally live, you now have a little more control over the news GamingOnLinux presents to you.

You can now filter out articles from the home page, from a set of tags you pick. Don't want to see Early Access titles? How about Crowdfunding or Steam Play? Head on over to the User Control Panel, scroll down a little to the new "Content preferences" section and it will allow you to add tags there. To be clear, it will filter out any articles with any of those tags you pick.

A little video demonstration:

Since I fully understand I can't please everyone and some people would much rather just not have to see certain types of content, hopefully this will make the website cleaner and nicer to use for you. We as a community may not always agree but I am absolutely open to making it the best website it can be, for everyone.

Naturally, some might do this and still want a quick peek and so you can quickly see all news on the home page without touching your tag preferences using this link. That link can be found any time in the "Go to:" quick navigation bar right at the top of the article list as "All News".

Nice one! However, is there a way to do this for the RSS feed?

Nice work. The site is getting very fancy.

This reminds me that I wish lots of sites could have a customizable RSS feed, but that is asking a lot since feeds are only used by about 12 of us...

Very nice one, thanks!

Does it have to do with, erm... very recent discussion? If so, you're a quick developer!

In progress.

Not originally. I've had a lot ask about filtering over the last year but let's just say the recent comments on that No Man's Sky article pushed me to just do it.

Very nice addition to the tag system! I like the tag type box more than the list of the regular tag filtering actually. Although the list doesn't require you know what is available.

Which section do you mean by "regular tag filtering"?

When you click on a tag, you get a list at the top for further selections. That's the one I meant.

Nice feature!
For discoverability and practicality's sake, it would be nice to be able to add a tag to the ignore filter after clicking on it (an option on the top of the /category/<tag> page, maybe along with a link to the custom RSS when it's implemented) :)

Great! Now if you want a nice, quiet site all you need to do is filter out the "liamdawe" tag and you're golden.
Pit 27 Mar, 2019
Oh wow. That was indeed something I wanted for quite some time, but thought my wishes are too special to be of general interest....
Thanks for this!
