    Although this is something I don't need for my sites, nice idea. Looks like a great add on. :)

    Yes this is a good idea. Have you any information on the performance on large forums? Is there any reason why performance might be hampered when there are millions of threads and hundreds of thousands of members?

    The reason WirralTalk didn't have the History link placed before the New Posts link is that he has a modified style. I'm helping him resolve this by showing him how to modify the Template Modification.

    Thank you for reminding me. I meant to add code to auto prune the xf_history table automatically.

    I'll add an option in the Admin Control Panel where the number of days to retain history can be set.

    I think it would be better to hide History link in navigation bar for guests, because it's no use for them.

    Andy I'll repeat here what I suggested in conversation with you previously to see whether there is interest from others.
    Personally I think there is loads of potential if the history could be extended to work with other internal pages like conversations and member profiles and importantly addons like Showcases, Hotspots, Competitions and Galleries.

    Storing the history for a guest (in cookies) would be a great way of engaging them and showing off a sample of what great features Xenforo has to offer.

    I agree. Then maybe add a function for admins to decide.

    The Template Modification you use here, seems to collide with the one of Unread Post Count:
    Unreaded Post Count - Reg Exp:
    /href="{xen:link 'fi(.*?)s}}/is
    Unreaded Post Count - Replace-Code:
    $0 <xen:include template="unread_posts_count" />

    I've just installed, but the History link isn't appearing in the navigation (next to New Posts) at all.
    Checked ACP options, and is definantly selected/ticked to do so.
    What could I have missed?

    Resolved, with help and thanks to @AndyB
    My style had made changes to default, and impacting the search and replace this this addon. Just did it manually instead.
