Hey Rocketfoot!

I know that on other forums there are links for unread posts or threads. Because sometimes I'll log in but won't have the time to go through all the new stuff. And when I log out and comeback I have to go through every topic in the forums list to find those that I missed. Is there a way to add a link to unread posts?

I'll have to check on that one...I've never seen a plugin for unread posts, but I will look!

OK, I did find a plugin that adds unread posts. the new link is right next to Today's Posts. It will show you how many posts that you haven't read and it will disappear when you have no unread posts. You can click it and then click Mark Forums read to clear it out. I really haven't tested it out so try it and see what you think!

After you read them all...click MARK FORUMS READ up on the right side...that should clear it out and reset it for the next batch of posts!

Good I like this feature even though the site is becoming pretty active now and I don't think I can read every post like I used too lol

Sounds good! Just remember...once you click MARK FORUMS READ...all those unread posts disappear! The counter then starts over.
