Unread post count in Categories tab

edited December 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Is there a way to add a unread topic count to the forums in the Categorie tab so people know where to look if they only want to read new material?

    This isn't exactly the same, but there's a "New Discussion" filter extension. It displays only discussions with unread comments. But it shows discussions from all categories.

    I don't see the tab you're talking about. Maybe it's a specific template.
    You mean on this kind of page, unread topics for each category? Or the "categories" tab between "discussions" and "search"?

    Yes, in there I would like a unread post count. I plan on removing the discussions tab and putting a front page of some other type. But I want my users to be able to look only in the categories they want and need too.

    edited December 2007 Pretty much what I am after only in an add-on would be good. Or can anyone tell me how to change what code where to do this?
