How to quickly mark notifications as read?

edited April 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Does anyone know a way of quickly marking all notifications as read? I don't know whether it was intended so, but they tend to be a little bit irritating.

Lets say 5 people commented on my discussion - there will be the number "5" visible in the navigation menu. It stays there even after I've read those comments; I have to visit my profile, choose notifications and then click it again to clear the number of unread notifications. Shouldn't they be marked as read as soon as I read those comments?

    You should click on the number of notification, not the name.

    It does change the destination (via JS).
    I talked about that to Mark a while back, I thought it had changed for a while to a less magicky stuff, but maybe it was reverted, or it was never in.
    I'll try to check what happened.

    // Go to notifications if clicking on a user's notification count $('li.UserNotifications a span').click(function() { document.location = gdn.url('/profile/notifications'); return false; });
