Actually, yes!

You can defer a topic which will set the last previously read to unread. So for this category setting deferred for me sets my unread to 1.

Here is how to do it on mobile (when I get to the office I will do the desktop version):

Click “Topic Controls”:

Click “Defer”:

What are you using then? Because I am using On Brand

And it isn’t admin controlled by default, so I can’t turn a switch on for everyone.

So to enable it:

  1. Go to your user interface preferences: https://forums.classicpress.net/my/preferences/interface

  2. Under the “Other” Section enable the defer option:


That was an interesting little thing!

I like it :wink:

Sorry :wink:

It does make me curious what other features I use all the time that users don’t know exist! Because I use the defer all the time when I want to come back to a thread.
