Idea Linking to Unread Posts

I had a number of users who wanted to be able to see a list of Unread posts since their last visit and I could not find a solution in the software or in the latest posts module. The default behavior of the link in the module was to take you to the last or latest post in the thread as opposed to the first post that you had not yet read.

After examining the mod_kunenalatest.xml file, I think I was able to fix the module (latest posts) by adding a line to the mod_kunenalatest.xml file. The original is located in the zip install file.

Open the file using a decent text editor such as Notepad++ (notepad-plus-plus.org/) and then add a line to the file as shown highlighted in yellow on the screenshot below:





Then save the module and upload it to your site. When setting the display options, you will now see an oddly named choice which you should choose and then save. If my tests are accurate, when you click on the link on the front end, the first post you see on your page will be the first post you have not yet read. I was just playing with it trying to figure out a solution and tried this. If it works, please let me know!

I am not a programmer, and make NO GUARANTEES if this is will work for your site. BACK UP YOUR LIVE SITE BEFORE YOU TEST THIS!!!!!!

Hi,

Did this work and what do you mean with display options? What I should find and from where?

I would like to know also how to get this "show unread topics" option to Kunena forum.
