Custom "new posts" tab

Hello,

We recently moved from vBulletin to XenForo, buying themes and some plugins we needed, and the installation is smoothless.
We used to have tapatalk on the old vBulletin installation, and we decided that, now that we have migrated systems and we have a responsive mobile theme, it'd be great to get rid of it. Most users don't really care but we, as moderators, miss one functionality tapatalk had and we can't seem to find.
On tapatalk, there's a tab called "new messages" that instead of showing the threads that have new messages like XenForo does, shows all the new messages in a list that looks like a thread. This list is also able to be edited post by post and, once one post is edited, it automatically disappears of the list as "read".

We posted this message on the customization forum, but we recognize we might need a third party addon for it and therefore we decided to post here.

The functionalities it would require are as follow:

  • A tab accessible in the "What's new" section.
  • The tab shows all the new posts in a list, similar to a thread.
  • The posts disappear dinamically once they are edited.
  • The posts have the thread where they come from on top of the message, for the users to know.

Additionally, it could include this:

  • Could include a "read" button to make the posts disappear as well, for normal users.
  • Could include an option for the admins to discard forums/categories that appear on this tab.
  • Could include an option for the users to mark all the posts as read

Thanks for your answers!
Zentral.
