Forum 'Latest Posts' question.

Recommended Posts

Ok. What I would like to do is this. I have some forums that I custom coded, and each post/thread has a time() value placed in the database of when the post was submitted. Now, what I want to know how to do is how to check to see if a user has read that topic or not, showing the 'unread' topics. How would I go about doing this? Would I have to log every single user that has viewed the topic and do a check to see whether or not the user has read it? Or do I keep track of which topics the user has read....oranything i'm not thinking of...any help appreciated. I'm just wondering how forums like phpBB do it, they show topics that haven't been read by you, then when they have been read, they are set to a 'status' where it's not read....so confused. Thanks for any help.
