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?

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.

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.

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

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