Very usefull. Coincidentally I was looking for a mod / hack to have new messages from selective forums (user selectable)
Users complain they want to read new posts only in some forums.
Maybe can be added here...

its the same method but in more detail, it you have a custom template other than the default then XIXXONs method wont work as

<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="search.php?$session[sessionurl]do=getnew" accesskey="2">$vbphrase[new_posts_nav]</a></td>

does not exist

it might me

<td class="navitem"><a href="search.php?$session[sessionurl]do=getnew" accesskey="2">$vbphrase[new_posts_nav]</a></td>

and it might not be in template : navbar

It worked in my default view the first try. Thanks guys.

I just wish I could get it to work in the Blak-Ice skin but first, I'll have to make a "New Posts" button and add all that code. <heavy sigh>

Does the top-most option (which says simply "New Posts" in bold) link to any unread posts? All my forum's posts are currently read, and I would need to have an option which lists only any and all unread posts at any one time.

Not sure what the "Previous Visit" might indicate - example, what if I am logged in all morning, and just want to view new unread posts from the current visit?

Thanks!

[Update - I see the hyperlink now - Previous Visits is the getnew. I might rename it simply "All Unread"]

Curious how to colorize the menu options on mouseover. Right now the hovered item's text disappears, and my users are asking to allow them to continue to view the selection they are about to click into.

All the other navbar menus present a gray background during the hover event. This mod of yours seems to change the text color to white okay, but doesn't change the background from white to gray.

Any pointers appreciated.

[Update: I studied the CCS settings on the style and just changed your title="nohilite" to title="hilite" within the navbar template on each 4 rows, and now the background color changes on the menu sub-option selection. Thanks!]
