    Does anyone know if you can hide "Suggested Topics" ?

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    If you have the Adblock Plus extension installed in your browser, it should have a "block element" button in its menu. You can click that, move your mouse pointer around the page until that "Suggested Topics" element is highlighted in red/pink, and then click and it should go away.

    Here's a picture of what the process looks like; the white arrow with a black border indicates approximately where I had my mouse pointer to get that entire box highlighted.

    If anybody knows how to do similar to get rid of the annnoying background image, I'd appreciate a hint.

    @categorytheory It comes back! (Using ublock origin, but it appeared to work until I navigated away and back again.)

    Yeah, I hadn't actually gone through the entire block process, but I've decided that I too find the suggested topics annoying enough that I'll block it as well, and so then proceeded further. It seems that hovering selects the element just fine, but when you click suddenly more elements are selected. In the box that pops there's what is obviously a selector of some sort, so my guess is that's selecting the wrong thing.

    Looking at the element hiding documentation: (https://adblockplus.org/filter-cheatsheet#elementhiding) for Adblock Plus, I see that the ABP selector is a domain name followed by ## followed by a CSS Selector: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSS#Selector) In this case, it's discussions.ubisoft.com##.container selecting all elements in that domain with class container , and probably more than one element has that class.

    Examining the the DOM with Chrome's "Inspect" function (in the right click menu) brings up the DevTools window on the Elements tab:

    undefined

    That <div data-widget-area="footer"> block surrounding the <div class=content> block looks promising, so I tried modifying the CSS selector in the box to select that, changing .content to div[data-widget-area="footer"], but that didn't seem to change what was selected. (I'm not sure it's previewing correctly after a change.) But clicking the "Block" seemed to do the trick, and it appears to be staying gone now.

    If you need to check or change the filter, you can bring up the Options tab for Adblock Plus, click "Advanced" at the left, and in the "My Filter List" section type "dicussions.ubisoft" into the "Search or add filter(s)" box to show all filters for that domain. You can then click the on/off button to temporarily disable it or click the filter text itself to edit it.

    It sounds like you're using a different ad blocker, but hopefully all this will provide enough information for you to figure out how to make your blocker do the same thing.

    It seems one can do this by adding the following URL to your ad blocker:

    https://discussions.akamaized.net/static/prod/static/assets/plugins/@discussions/nodebb-theme-ubisoft/static/assets/thedivision2/page-bg.jpg


    This replaces the image with a nice non-distracting black background.
