I am not experienced enough Plum user (not mention developer) to disable this feature, but I decided that I can just remove the link to the Federated feed, so nobody will see it. It would be enough for start.
Feed list is taken from the database. You can see table
timeline_definition to see where they are defined
plume=# select * from timeline_definition; id | user_id | name | query ----+---------+----------------+---------- 1 | | Local feed | local 2 | | Federated feed | all 3 | 1 | My feed | followed 4 | 2 | My feed | followed (4 rows)
Feeds with no
user_id set are global feeds shown to everyone. So we can hide “Federated feed” by deleting it, or by assigning it to a user that will never login. Plume have
__instance__ user with user
id = 1, guess it is used for technical purposes. So I decided to assign “Federated feed” to that user, so nobody will really see these federated articles. This I’ve done with the following command:
plume=# update timeline_definition set user_id=1 where id=2; UPDATE 1
And this “Federated feed” will never be seen not by users not by search engins.
