Members indeed love this, one of the most used add-ons on our forums almost instantly after installment. I even have to keep this located next to news posts or members will complain..
Very convenient for quick access to recent topics. Thanks to author for this and other useful add-ons and for support, when I met with difficulties!
This is such a useful add-on for our forum members! It easily allows them to find that thread they were reading just the other day, but can now no longer recall exactly which forum it was in. Just click the History Tab and wah-lah there it is!

BTW: AndyB's BOOKMARK add-on makes an excellent partner for this, so users can have their own individual Bookmarks for use on your forum.
Excellent idea and add-on. Works perfectly as stated. Members do love it. Helps the forgetful ones find their way back. Thanks AndyB! Please donate to him.
Really useful in some situations. Something Me myself read some threads and after a while need to back to that thread to review something, but takes some time to find it. Now, Piece of cake. Thanks Andy.
great feature and great add-on, works as advertised ! I just had a question, is there a way I could remove the 50 threads limitations, to show the entire history ? that would be perfect :)
Great plugin. My users like it because some of them forget the previous threads they viewed and then get mad when they lose it. Thank you for this! :)
Another one of those little gems made by Andy. Xenforo is full of (IMHO) unnecessary functionality, but this one is missing. Makes it very easy for your members to quickly check which topics they've browsed. My members LOVE it ;)
Nice addition
