Unread posts or posts since last visit

    This would be huge for me. It was at the heart of my old (and missed) workflow back when our site was running SMF.

    Enter forum -> Click unread topics -> Process all

    Nowadays when I enter the forum, I gotta spend valuable time identifying which topics are new since I last visited (or even go to page two).

    The ideal solution for me would be an actual check of whether or not I’ve read a given topic since it was last replied to, just like SMF and the likes do it. A first implementation could just leave a visual marker in the forum index page, like making the unread topics bold, applying a star, a small “new” text or icon, any such thing. An added feature would be the ability to browse all unread topics through a dedicated link, so that if there were some unread topics not included on the forum index (like the ones I didn’t read a long time a go and forgot about) I can still find them through this list.

    The “New Posts Since Last Visit” plugin could probably provide a nice base.

    i’m more inclined waiting for the new bbPress plugin before tackling a feature like this.

    Gotcha, I can relate to that :) Hopefully come September 15th we’ll get to put our alpha-tester-hats on.

    I am looking forward for some public alpha release.

    Was something like this ever released? I guess if no one responds to this then no..

    No one, really? This should be one of the basic things right, i can’t imagine this isn’t possible by default! Can someone lend a hand?

    Well, by now this should probably be considered a request for bbPress 2.

    There are a few unread post plugins that could be adapted, but you’ll run into issues with scaling it. In the past I used a cookie/db hybrid solution to get the users last visit vs new topics and posts.
