Getting number of new posts in discussion
Hi. Some quick background: I've recently switched from Vanilla 1 to 2 after a very long wait. The primary thing preventing me from switching was that my board relies heavily on whatever plugin was similar to this one in Vanilla 1; albeit a modified version of it.
This plugin is great and has gotten us over that hump. however, I really want to find a way to modify it so that it will show not only the totally number of comments within a discussion, but also the number of NEW comments for the current user within that discussion. Much like the discussion panel does.
Has anyone done something like this? If not, does anyone have any pointers? I am fairly lost in the structure of vanilla 2 still.
