When MFO Discussions is opened, there are 4 Announcements at the top and the Setting-wheel offers the choice to "Dismiss". Being the curious type, I clicked on that on some to see what happens and those items have disappeared from the top of my list. Now I would like to restore those but there isn't any "Undismiss/Restore" click on those items (I have just Bookmarked them for now). How to I go back? @chip
? Curiously, when I open MFO-Discussions from an unsigned browser, I still see all 4 items.
So, good suggestion, and should have worked, but didn't.
After doing this, I searched in vain for a way to restore this announcement.
I signed out of MFO without clearing my cookies or restarting Firefox.
I accessed MFO without signing in and the dismissed announcement was visible under 'Discussions'.
After signing in via Firefox, the announcement disappeared.
I signed out using Firefox and accessed MFO via Edge without signing in.
The dismissed announcement was visible under 'Discussions' but it disappeared after I signed in using Edge.
This doesn't appear to be a cookie issue and may be related to some user profile setting(s) on the MFO site.
The original post for this dismissed announcement was created in the 'Fund Discussions' category.
I can still view it there and it remains tagged as an announcement.
So, I just searched for the dismissed Announcements and Bookmarked them. But why the Dismiss option is even there? Normally, options toggle (ON/OFF), but this one doesn't. If a filler is needed under that Setting-wheel, it could just say Hello instead (-:).
Sitewide Messages It appears the choice to dismiss can be disabled by the administrator of the site but, once dismissed, cannot be reversed by the user.
