    I'm embarrassed to say, but it took me two years of using XF to realize you couldn't mark threads as read without reading them first (not something I personally ever used). It took someone asking about it before I realized it wasn't there. Thanks!

    Very handy little addon. Appears to work fine on 1.3

    Love this plugin; but as a feature suggestion, perhaps making a button to mark the entire forum node as read. Still, a must have.
