Link to categorie with "new" label

I have a category on my forum where I load load ads through an RSS feed. I have excluded this categorie from "recent discussions' because it will flood this section.
Q: would it be possible to label this menu item with "new" or a counter when the categorie it links to has new discussions ? 2.2 + Bootstrap

    Hmmm not sure about that but will look into it and see if I can add a counter somehow to a specific link. ʼbelieve they are called notifications. Maybe I will try something like this:

    $CategoryName = $Category->Name;
    $CountNotifications = $Category->Name->CountNotifications;
    if (is_numeric($CountNotifications) && $CountNotifications > 0)
    $CategoryName .= ' <span>'.$CountNotifications.'</span>';
