Hi All,

Is there an option to have Unread posts as opposed to latest topics?

OK, found the following in the help system.

The read/unread status of posts

 

The read or unread status of forum topics is tracked consistently across devices. The read/unread status is saved in a user's forum account, so signing in using any device will automatically display the correct read/unread status of topics.

You can use your laptop and mobile phone to read the forum without some posts appearing read on one device and unread on the other.

Guest users that are not logged into the forum will see all posts marked as read. Website Toolbox forums that have the User Accounts option turned off will use browser/cookie based post tracking.

But, if you notice, up at the top, there is a "Latest Topics" Tab, on the Mobile, tap on the the lines top right hand corner, latest topics.
That appears to be where the account based tracking is displayed.

Hope that helps...

Another method:
Go to a topic and you'll see a list of the topics.  Next to each topic is a small rounded five-pointed star.  If it's white, you're up to date.  If it's a pale gray (it's subtle), you haven't read all the traffic.

The later method is what I am using.   Plus the RSS into outlook.

I've never done RSS with Outlook -- so it's not terrible with that?

It's grand. Nothing special. I find it helps push me back onto the site more than anything.

Can you change the "pale gray" into something with a more visual contrast?

I admit it -- I'm not 21 anymore -- my older eyes like more visual contrast.

Or is there a built-in theme, or something, that does this already that I'm missing?

Thanks.

Regards,
Michael B.

Yeah.   I think they need to update the theme directory per our messages.

Made a different change myself, now that I understand how I can "move a few images"

If this works, we could get a naked MPV to point to the unread posts (LOL)

We should have Gold star for new
Dark Grey star for all read
Light Grey star for some new replies.
I can swap them around if you fancy...
