    Why not have a little box next to previously viewed thread showing you how many new posts have been made since you last viewed the thread? Clicking on the box would then get you to the thread, starting from the oldest unread post.

    This is a pretty important feature. Quite so often when I use the User CP to check on subscribed threads, I have to hunt for my last post in threads.


    A little preview of what it looks like, taken from another forum that uses this:

    Great idea. That would make my life a lot easier on here.

    Doesn't vBulletin software have this feature?

    It's not a standard vBulletin feature. I know of a third-party add-on that provides this feature but it's not compatible with the version of vBulletin to which we just upgraded.

    On a related note, I use a search

    to find all the threads I have participated in.

    It would be perfect for my needs if "lastpost" sorted on the thread's last update date, but it seems to sort on the last date of my post. So it doesn't do a good job of revealing any necroposts.

    Is there a way to do that?
