Can the copr category be removed from the Latest list?

As shown here.

I just got up to >200 unread topics, it’s drowning everything else out…


I wonder if it is really necessary to create an empty companion discussion topic each time something happens in COPR. Would it be possible to add functionality to COPR web site which creates the topic once it is needed?

You can mute it your side by clicking the circle in the top right on the category page.

I had to enable creating empty discussion topic (names of projects are taken from RSS) - so yes, it can be definitelly disabled and it will be created on the fly when somebody open the project page in Copr for the first time.
The problem is that creating of topic takes some time (nearly one minute). Therefore Discourse recommend to create it in advance if possible.

I just enabled “do not list this category in Latest” and puff, it is gone. Enjoy :slight_smile:


I checked my RSS feed for Latest just now and it showed 150+ topics from COPR… from your previous reply I thought I shouldn’t be seeing this anymore. Is that not correct?

For some reason, they pushed that change to production. So now you’re going to
see a lot of that.

Hummm… read the reply from @msuchy - he said he enabled “do not list this category in Latest”, which should resolve the issue. If it doesn’t then a bug report needs to be opened so it can be addressed.

Regarding opening a topic for every COPR because it takes “nearly one minute” to open - just thinking out loud here - how many discussions are there for each COPR project? I’m thinking not that many… at least at the present time. If that is the case, then I would think it would make more sense to only open when needed rather than for every single COPR project. In any event, the integration is a great idea. Thanks!

Copr topics should not appear in Latest. And I really do not see them there
They however appear in New I already asked @sanja to file this as Discourse RFE to have checkbox to allow category to not be listed there.

Thanks for the quick reply… sorry, I wasn’t clear … I was referring to the rss feed for latest:

Good idea to also do the RFE on new also, including new.rss
Showing up in latest.rss at this point should be considered a bug and treated as such.

Hi, I read the bug report and it’s still happening. The notes say: “To update category tracking levels for sites that are on our hosting, get in touch with our support system and we’ll make the change for you.”

Did you request the change? This should be for all users, not just “new” users. Thanks!

COPR is still showing up in the latest RSS feed. According to the bug report you referenced this is something that Discourse will do for us since we are a hosted instance. Have you requested the change? I would think a month would be plenty of time to get this implemented. What is the holdup?
