Hi,

Been lurking a little while, this is my first post.

Is it possible to add a button that will list all topics with posts since the last visit to the forum? Or alternatively all topics with unread posts in them.

A lot of other forums offer this feature and it makes it a lot easier to keep up to date with everything rather than having to go in and out of the subforums to see if there is anything of interest that has been posted.

Thanks

When logged in, I can see which forums have something new.  Is that what you mean?

Hi Paul,

No, I can see that. What I mean is a button to press that will list the topics in all forums in a single list that have had posts since my last visit. I then don't have to go in and out of each forum but can simply read or reply to the ones that interest me.

If I want to create a new topic I'd actually go into the relevant forum, but other than that I could spend my entire time on the site with that list. It makes things a lot easier if one has a few moments and wants to keep on top of new posts.

I just googled on SMF and this subject and came up with the following link:

Cheers.

On a related topic, on threads that interest me or to which I've previously replied, I'd like a button that will take me to the first unread message in that thread.  Right now I have to click on the thread (or if there's more than one page, the last page number) then scroll down to the bottom and manually look for new postings.

I'm modest, but would like to bump this thread. Both ideas are very good and would really make things easier for members.

Anyway, thanks Paul, for keeping permies.com on! It's really good.
