Mass Mark as Read Buttons

Post by Korvic on October 10th 2012, 12:32 am

This idea is for people who do not wish to have to click and read every topic, but also want to see when a new one is posted. (Or are just OCD like myself and want them all to be marked as read). What I was thinking was something where you'd click on the image that marks if there are new posts or not (only on forums and categories). This would mark everything below it as read.

Example:


-Category 1
--Forum 1.1
--Forum 2.2

+Category 2
++Forum 2.1
++Forum 2.2

The +'s mean that there's a new post, -'s mean no new posts. If you were to click on Category 2's +, it'd mark all the topics in the forums under it. So Forum 2.1 and 2.2 would become marked as read. Now, let's say you only want to mark Forum 2.2 as read. You could click on the ++ for Forum 2.2 and all the topics within it would be marked as read.

I think this'd make the forums feel a lot more flowing, rather than having to go through many different pages to mark them all as read, especially when it's a rather large forum. This idea is meant to be able to be applied to all forumotion forums. Perhaps it would be an option you can toggle.

Thoughts? :3

Please add a poll for a suggestion. Most forums should have a link that says, "Mark all forums read."

Please don't use bold or color. Please keep to the default text. This is reserved for the staff for moderation.

They do have a mark as read button, but it only does that forum from what I've seen. Also considering how hidden away the link that marks things as read is, it'd make it simpler and a neat addition in my opinion.
