    I tried to put a link to this page on FB for others who are annoyed by the “trending” issue and FB blocked me!!

    I’ve ticked the hide trending box on Purity but it’s still there. I understand FB has to generate income somewhere but it completely blocks all but one of my ticker entries, so annoying.

      You might have the wrong box ticked, the box you need to tick is titled “Trending Topics” and is beneath the “More Options” heading on the FBP options screen.
      You also need to make sure you have the latest version of FBP installed (v9.6.0)
