bbPress Go To First Unread Post

Allows registered bbPress users to quickly jump to the first unread post in a topic.

bbPress Go To First Unread Post is a literally named plugin that allows registered users to jump to the first Reply in a Topic that they haven't viewed yet. This gives your bbPress forum the simple and expected functionality of non-WordPress counterparts like phpBB, without a lot of coding.

First, you activate the plugin on a blog that already has the bbPress plugin enabled. This is all you need to do to activate the basic functionality of the plugin, which includes:

  • Automatic tracking of last reply viewed, per topic per user.
  • Link next to the title of a topic if the user has unread posts (between the title and pagination)

The plugin also includes two template tags for extra functionality:

  • Mark Topics as Read link
  • Mark Forum as Read link

Tested for WordPress 3.6+.
