Last Read Forum Post Plugin
Allow users to return to where they left off in forum threads, with the 4 Roads Last Read Forum Post plugin for Telligent 7.0 upwards
Currently within Telligent, if a user leaves a forum thread and returns to it at a later date, they are defaulted back to the start of the thread – meaning users have to manually scroll and click though posts to get to where they last were.
4 Roads have created this plugin to enhance this experience.
The ‘last forum read post’ plugin allows the user to continue where they left off when reading forum threads from the point at which they last read the thread.
Technically, the plugin allows the tracking of what post a user has last read in a thread and then creates an nVelocity extension to expose the link. A simple modification is required to the standard ThreadList widget to support this feature.
