    Marking Threads


    One of the things I've always disliked about phpBB is the lack of markings on a thread that you've posted in. It's pain in the butt, and I know there's been calls for a mod to fix this. Question is, has a mod been created yet?

    remember you can always use the "Whatch this topic" function, it is set at the bottom left of the thread.

    I don't quite understand what you're talking about here. I keep track of threads I've responded to by going to "view your posts". If there's a thread I really need to refer to a lot, I add it to "watched threads"...

    I normally use the View posts since last visit link. In other board software, there's usually a "mark" on the thread that shows you've responded to that thread.

    I know what you mean, AFAIK there is no mod for it.. I might write one after we upgrade to phpbb3 though, I think its a handy feature too.

    I *finally* figured out what you're talking about! (I think) I'm in another forum now that has little black dots it adds to the thread icon for a thread I've posted in. That is a handy feature.

    Gotta admit that I miss not having the markers, too.
