Read / Unread Categories


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there's a way to make it so that categories can be the thing being checked as read/unread?

For example, I'd like to have our classifieds homepage tell users when there are new items in each category. For instance:

Bicycles (NEW)
Rims (NEW)

But the only way I can see to achieve this is off the core 'Unread' system, which isn't great for this as it requires a user to then mark all items as read. That's not the intent, the intent would be that if a category has any items since the user's last visit to that category, that it shows new items. Then as soon as that user visits the category (doesn't have to open anything), the NEW status would disappear from that category.

TLDR; Looking to make it so that a category with new items in it is automatically marked as 'read' when it is opened, and not when each individual item inside of it is marked as read.
