    Just a minor suggestion, shouldn't this be renamed to "Unread Posts" instead of Threads? I think it would make more sense. :)

    Wouldn't make more sense, because it's for threads and not posts

    great idea although this will add a lot of query calls :cautious:
    it will be nice if there is a cached feature :)

    Yes it adds ATM 1 query (on pages with the sidebar)
    Version 1.0.1 (which will be released in the next days which fixes a bug, adds 2 queries if we don't find another way to query the data)

    We've discussed internal about a cache, but we're still not sure, if we want to implement it, because it would indicate a wrong number if it's a time-based cache. And firering a trigger after thread creation /deletion and when viewing a unread thread is also not the best solution

    I understand what you are saying and it make a prefect sense. From what I understand from your previous post it will only be an option (which is a great move) sense I will like to keep it at the home page. (y)

    Where would I go to edit the font color of the "Unread Threads" listing in the sidebar?
    I want this to standout a bit more for the user.

    ExtraLicense, any plans to include the unread threads counter into the navbar instead of/optional the visitor panel?
    Suggestion: display a list of forums on the Accounts page that a user has permissions to access, and allows them to select the ones they DON'T want to see in Unread Threads.
    Very usefull add-on. Thanks
