    The forum has always had the ability to simply display all threads with new posts in them but not all users recognized this. To make it easier to recognize, I've modified the forum where a count of your unread posts is now displayed at the top right of the screen.

    This required enabling a different way of tracking unread posts, so the first day this will probably be a little funky for you on what threads are marked read or not but should stabalize after that

    Enjoy!

    Same here. I have found that useful today as well. One thing that would be nice is to have a mark forums read tab as well, that way we can mark them as read after we have looked at them.

    You can mark all forums read at the bottom of the forum list window as a 'catch up'.

    Individual threads will be marked read automatically as you view them.

    You can mark an entire forum read by clicking on 'forum tools' at the top of the window (near where message start) and select 'mark forum read'

    The next version which I will be updating too soon also allows you do to do this from the main window with an AJAX pop-up.
