Would it be unmaintainable to add a "Mark all forums read" link/button to the pages viewed after clicking on "View posts since last visit?

Submit a patch and I'll look at it. :) Off the top of my head, my guess is you'd need to modify /templates/search_body.tpl to include the necessary link.

As an alternative, you could just bookmark the following link:

In general I heavily doubt the usefullness of things like phpbb, postnuke, phpnuke etc. becoming ebuild'ed...

You only need to extract them into your webhome and open the setup script in your browser...However, I read things like PHPNuke etc. won't get ebuild'ed and that's good ;)

I was thinking the same thing the other day. It would be very nice to mark "all forums read" much easier than clicking each forum.

Now, Scandium, you wont be the only non-moderator posting to this thread :) feel less strange yet?

just to clarify -- you can currently do that on the main page. There's a link in the bottom left corner of the home page that says "Mark all forums read". That link, however, is not on the "view posts since last visit" page, which I believe is the one that kanuslupus was referring to.

I'd prefer the 'high-tech' solution if it proves to not be a hassle to maintain.

Why do you need this? If you logon then go view posts since last vist, logoff and logon again view posts since last vist will be clear.

I think it's more of an ease-of-use thing.

I haven't forgotten about the patch -- I just got caught up in my httptunnel init script tonight along with trying to figure out why I couldn't get httptunnel to work in the first place (duh, because you had the port blocked on the firewall you idiot...) So, I'll get to this tomorrow night...

OK, hang on a bit, because I may rework it to make it look like kanuslupus wants it to. BTW, kanuslupus, could you post your opinion about how it should look to this thread?

Here's what I sent to dioxmat for what I was wanting to achieve.

See this link for reference. You should see "Search found x matches". Under that, "Gentoo Forums Forum Index". I was going to try to position the "Mark all forums read" link opposite "Gentoo Forums Forum Index". As an example, where "View unanswered posts" is on the main page. In addition, I was going to add one to the bottom of the page on the left side (Under "Page 1 of x" if that is visible). Does that make sense?

The basic idea being to get the "Mark all forums read" link in 2 convenient locations... 1 at the top, the other near the bottom. Those two locations just seemed the best to me.

BTW, this should be implemented now, in case you hadn't already figured that out. :)

Thanks to rac for doing the grunt work.
