#225 closed new feature (wontfix)

BW forum: icon for unread threads in list!

Reported by: lemon-head Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unassigned
Component: BW Forum Keywords: welen


In modern Forums it is a convenient feature to have unread posts / threads indicated with a special icon.

Often this is extended to different status:

  • all read
  • x of y posts are unread
  • all posts unread
  • I am the starter
  • One of the replies is mine.

All of this can be visualized through icons, and/or special layout! And clicking the icon can lead you to the oldest unread post. (I don't know if we keep track of read/unread in the database? should be a flag for each post! (it can happen that you read the last post, but still you miss some in between..)

Maybe, if it becomes too much work, some intermediary results can be published in the blog or forum for evaluation? But in general, I think it will not make a big damage to put a version with icons online, without further evaluation.

Do we have a table in the DB for read/unread forum posts? This will be a huge matrix I'm afraid.. number of users times number of posts or threads...
