BB Tricks & Tips #2 Marking Forums & Threads Read

Continuing our series of tips & tricks for using the board, this week we're going to focus on the different ways you can mark threads and forums read (other than actually reading them ;)).

First, forums. You probably have noticed the sublink under the "Forums" tab that says "Mark Forums Read". This behaves in one of two ways:

1) On the forum homepage, when you click on it, it will ask you if you really want to mark all forums read. If you say yes, all unread threads on the entire board will be marked read.

2) If you are inside a forum at the time, it will give you the option to just mark that forum read, or to mark the entire board as read.

Another way to mark an entire forum as read is to double click on its icon on the forum homepage.

Second, threads. From the list of threads inside a forum, or the results of a search, if you point your mouse near to the thread you want to mark as read, a little "Mark as Read" button comes up. If you click on it, the thread will be marked as read. This lovely XF addition was made by our very own sk73!

But the best way to mark a thread read, of course, is to read it! ;)

I hope this little tutorial was helpful!
