      Description

      It would be useful to have visual tracking of read/unread messages in the message boards portlet. This would show whether the user had already read a particular category/forum or thread, whether it was completely new or whether they had read some of the messages or replies. It would probably be best shown by three different icons next to the category/forum or thread (no new messages/replies, some new messages/replies, all new messages/replies)

        We already have the backend for this. But currently not displaying the icons. So this shoudln't be too difficult.

        You can see in the jsp code, a bunch of "readFlag" variables, that bold or unbold. Just need to change that logic to icons instead.

        Thanks Brian. I realised after I submitted this issue that it was implemented as bold/unbolad text. I think it would be more obvious as icons with a key to show what the icons mean (all new/some new/no new messages/replies). Not sure if it is currently implemented at the category level?
