Forum tech suggestion

Hi guys:

I have been on a few forums on other subjects over the years and one thing that I do like seeing....and leading to my suggestion for this forum is to have it so that once you have read a post, and then go back out to the main page, that posts icon "DIMS" to let you know that you have already read that post.

Another idea that might keep the page clean, although not sure if its already done, is to have a separate page for all older posts that have been sitting around. An archive if you will.

Just a few suggestions,

If you log out and then log back in and click on "Active topics" at the top right-hand corner of any page in the forums you'll get only posts that you haven't seen since your last logon.

Hope that helps!

Hi Chad- thanks for the suggestions! They're certainly good ones. I think we've outgrown our forum software, so to speak because we've modified it as much as we can to meet our needs and it still is a bit messy. It is just a reminder to me to look for some more upgrades to suggest to our tech.
