Unread posts?
« on: November 12, 2009, 07:59:54 AM »
I know phpBB allows this, but I'm not sure about SMF... is it possible to add a link to the page navigation that will jump to the first unread post in the topic? Or maybe just a different icon for unread posts? As topics get to 5+ pages it becomes time-consuming trying to figure out where I stopped reading last time.

edit: I just figured out the little blue "NEW" icon does this. I still feel like a change in appearance for read vs. unread posts would be helpful.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

We'll see what we can do about the unread posts appearance, but that may require an upgrade in board software (which is already in the planning stages)

When you say upgrade do you mean a different software like hopefully vBulletin?

Nope, there's a newer version of our forum software that we hope to move to.
