    Can you please add the ability to be able to mark individual forums as read?

    Thanks

    Oh, I wasn't ware of that. Is it possible to do this by using the individual forum icons?

    Icons no, but there is a suggestion for that.

    I believe @Stuart Wright might be having this developed for XenForo eventually (mark forums read from node icon). I think he's keen for his moderators to still have these actions available to help ease the transition from vBull.

    I think it's fair to say, however, that XenForo won't ever implement actions such as that. I'm pretty sure I've seen @Mike mention a few times that actions similar to that are not easily discoverable (element of truth really - software should be mostly self explanatory and intuitive to use, whereas you'd need to be told explicitly that double clicking a forum icon would perform an action) so I think something like this will exist as an add-on but maybe never in the core.

    In the mean time, this might be a good compromise:

    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/give-forum-node-icons-mark-forums-as-read-links.9763/

    Doesn't utilise AJAX, but it does link to the mark forum read link just by clicking the icon.
