    This add-on allows you to flag threads as 'must read'. Users that have not viewed such threads will see a page listing the threads they must view before continuing.

    To prevent issues with saving/viewing data, these checks aren't performed for POST or Ajax (view) requests (such as the alerts box).

    There is also an option to apply these threads to guests - the read information is then stored in the session data.

    There are forum permissions to mark threads as 'Force Read', as well as forum permissions to allow users to bypass the 'must read' requirement.

    It is also possible to reset users' read states for a thread, to force them to read a thread they may have already read.

    The 'must read' state can also be set for existing threads.

    This is a first impressions review, as I have only today purchased and tested the add-on. First off, it does exactly what it says it does, and is one of those handy "out of the way" type add-ons from an admin perspective. Secondly the developer seems very friendly and open to adding features. Very happy so far - thank you!
