New Posts and Mark All Read options

Postby DJDrDamage » Tue Sep 11, 2007 3:05 pm

Hi,

Does phpBB have options such as:

- "New Posts"
which is a link that will show you all new posts in all forums available to you?

- "Mark All Read", or something like that
which is a link that will mark all posts/forums as read.

cheers,
DJDrDamage

When you go into each individual forum, it changes to "mark this forum read" in case you don't want to hit them all at once.

It's not really that hard to find. There aren't really that many "links" around the page. Probably just more that people aren't usually curious enough to notice them.

The new forums will hopefully handle the "New posts" thing properly, but for those that don't visit often, the "View Active Topics" link will show posts that have been active over the last "x" days (7 by default) which might make it easier for you if you have been gone for a while and want a quick list of posts that you may have missed.
