That would be possible with a plugin to manipulate 2 key tables in the database (for threads not older than a limit set in the AdminCP), but I am curious why you would want to mark something as unread?I wish I could manually mark a particular section or thread as unread.
That means not all threads?for threads not older than a limit set in the AdminCP
If I am not done with a particular section or thread and want to read but post a reply later, marking it as unread would remind me.but I am curious why you would want to mark something as unread?
There are 2 tables in the database that keep track of forums and threads and which users have read them. To prevent these tables from growing too large, a time limit is used to schedule pruning these tables. Thus, it would be impossible to mark a thread older than the defined limit as unread.That means not all threads?
I just did some looking around and found such a product already exists, and for the reason you just stated (and it is subject to the time limit I mentioned above). I will discuss this matter with the senior staff, and post back once a decision is made.If I am not done with a particular section or thread and want to read or post a reply later, marking it as unread would remind me.
I have actually considered such a thing, but I am wondering if vBulletin's thread subscription feature couldn't be used for just such a purpose.If all threads can't be marked as unread, or if it is difficult to code, can we have flag or star option? If anyone feels that he/she is not done with a particular thread, then the person can flag it (as seen in outlook) or star it (as seen in Gmail) and all flagged or starred threads can be found in a separate section under "MY POSTS".
