How To Block Subreddits From Your R/all Feed?
1. To block Subreddits on older version of Reddit
Reddit was not the same as today. In the year 2018, the site wholly over-turned its appearance and options. The site was tested for 12 months, and after satisfying results, the site got updated. In the older version of Reddit, you can block specific subreddits, but not in the new one.
You can tap three times in the older version of Reddit to block any time-wasting subreddits. There was an option available on the r/all page, and all you need to do is enter the name of the subreddit, tap the ‘+’ icon, and done.
2. To Block Subreddits on Newer Version of Reddit
The company has changed many of its functions in the newer version. By default, you will get the latest version of Reddit when you install it, but if you still want to use the older version, you can download it from https://old.reddit.com. In the older version, you will miss out on many updated features but will have the option to block subreddits easily. Additionally, the subreddits you have blocked in the older version won’t vanish in the newer one.
Using the old version only for those extra sub-filters is not a good idea. But, you are not defenseless against unwanted subreddits. In this article, we will be discussing some ways and third party solutions to block subreddits.
3. Blocking Subreddits Today
Blocking subreddits today is not as easy as it used to be. The updated version doesn’t feature any filter option in your r/all feed. The easiest thing you can do is to spam vote it, but there should be thousands of spam votes on the particular subreddit to remove it from the r/all feed.
If you don’t want any third party interference in your account, then the best way to dismiss the unwanted content is to upgrade to Reddit premium. The premium version of the Reddit app will allow you to block or hammer down some of the unwanted subreddits from the r/all feed. Though the premium version is a bit pricey, it is worth it.
4. To upgrade your Reddit application
1. Tap on the downward-facing arrow at the top right corner.
2. From there head towards the User Settings menu which will take you to a new user interface.
3. From there, tap Reddit premium > get Reddit premium and choose your payment option. Once you have completed your payment successfully, you can easily block any unwanted subreddits by hitting the lock hammer in the r/all feed.
The blocking is pretty much the same as the older version but with updated features.
5. For Native Mobile Apps
If you are using a Reddit application from your mobile phone, things might not be the same. Mobile users aren’t as lucky as desktop users when it comes to blocking any particular subreddit. Mobile users are left with only one option: purchasing the premium version of Reddit and use the desktop to hammer unwanted subreddits. There is no such option available to block specific subreddits in the iOS or Android version of this application.
