    Wow, this one slipped by me entirely. Thanks so much for making this! Read/unread posts is just about the only feature missing for bbPress 2 to reach feature parity with our legacy BuddyPress forum, which we're very anxious to upgrade.

    First some quick quirks I ran into:
    - In the user profile there's a link that reads "Mark all as topics read". Shouldn't it be "Mark all topics as read"?
    - There's no changelog for 0.3

    As for features, what I'd love to see is:
    - Automatically mark posts as unread when user views them. (I'd much rather be without the "Mark as read" link in post view)
    - Optional visual indicator of each post's read/unread status in post lists, e.g. an icon.

    Put simply, what BP Unread Posts does.

    Thanks for noticing the typo and lack of changelog. I'll get these updated.

    There is already a feature for automatically marking topics as read. What happens is the moment you view a topic, a timer of sort starts. Once the user has been on the page for a long enough period of time, the topic is marked as read.

    There is a class name added to the topic to indicate its read/unread status. You could easily style it via CSS with this. At some point I would like to add some sort of default indicator, or at least an option to color the topics in some way.

    Oh wow, I didn't realize it was that advanced. Very nice work, thanks a lot.

    It's getting there! There is definitely more to do, but getting closer :)

    Hi Pippin,

    Regarding the CSS class name functionality, I was just curious to know if it works similar to how the plugin bbPress Pencil Unread does it?

    Yes, very similar.
