"Mark Forums as Read"

Postby Grasshopper » Tue September 2nd, 2008, 8:06 pm

I normally browse the forum by clicking "New Posts" on the bar at the top of the page and I was wondering if it would be possible to include a link somewhere on the New Posts page (usually found at the bottom) that would mark all posts/forums as read. On other forums that I frequent, I know that they use this link in order to tidy up after you are done reading posts.

See pic from one of my auto forums. The url of the "Mark Forums Read" link is "http://forums.tccoa.com/forumdisplay.php?do=markread".

I notice that there is a link at the bottom of the forum frontpage to mark all posts/forums as read, but not otherwise.

Thanks,

Allen

If you go to Quicklinks at the top of the page, you will find a Mark Forums as Read option.

There is also a Forum Tools button at the top of each individual forum which has this option in it as well.
