    Is this possible with WordPress/with a plugin?

    I belong to several forums where once you return, any posts that were added since you were last there, are highlighted, usually in bold. Possible in WP?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    there is no plugin for that,

    and it is not easy to implement.

    To identify a non loged-in user you have to use a cookie. I would set a cookie with two vars (today and last time of visit). You have ask last visit each time you display a message.

    It takes a little time I think...

    I wonder if Alex King's "Since Last Visit" plugin works with WP 2.x? http://alexking.org/projects/wordpress (scroll down a wee bit)
