Support » Plugin: bbPress Pencil Unread » Feature Request

  • First, I don’t know how anyone can run any fourm without Read/Unread status, and your’s is the only one that does this.

    I have, in fact, added it as a recommended plugin to use in conjunction with my brand new bbPress plugin, Weaver for bbPress which makes bbPress a turnkey install – you get great styes and basic layout tweaking and user/admin usability options. But my plugin relies on your plugin for read/unread status.

    But after using it for a while on my own very active support forum, I’ve discovered one missing but important feature. There is an option to mark read topics before user registration. But as an admin and knowing that tracking adds entries to the db each time someone reads an article, I can imagine that starting to impact the size of the db over time. I think it would really great to have an option to either mark unread all posts before a certain date or time period (older than 6 months, for example). This action should clear the old read entries, and use a cutoff date for all read checks first rather than individually checking each users list. Ideally the mark all read option before a certain date would be a one-time operation run when the admin requests it rather than a check each tim a post loads. (or a cron job once a day, perhaps.)

    But etill, your plugin is an essential, even required tool for a bbPress fourm!
