Number of Unread Posts


Well-known member
Would it be easy enough to make a mod that shows the number of unread posts since the last visit? I'm trying to add this number in to the header template, but I can't find an existing mod or variable.

If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be a big help!

XenForo_Model_Thread, line 450. You should be able to run that and return the results using the $viewParams inside your extended ControllerPublic.
