    Hi Pippin,

    Is there a way to make it so when a user views a topic they haven’t read, it will automatically mark the topic as “read” for the user?

    I like the idea of marking the thread “read” or “unread”, but ideally I think it would work better if my users can click on the “unread post” button and once they actually read the topic, it will mark it as read automatically for them vs having to mark it manually. I’d like them to have the option to mark the topic as “unread” in case they want to go back to read it again.

    Thanks for all your great plugins.

    That is already supported out of the box.

    Hi Pippin,

    Thanks for replying to my post.

    For some reason, this behavior isn’t happening whenever I click on an unread post. When I click on the post and read the topic, it’s still showing up as unread and not being marked as read automatically. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks again for your great plugin and support.

    How long are you sitting on the topic? It takes a little bit to activate.

    Hi Pippin,

    It seems this does work. I guess I was not staying on the topic long enough for it to mark the topic as read.

    Thanks again and sorry to bug you with this.
