How would you make it so when there is a new topic it is bold for the users then once they view it, it isn't bold anymore?

you need a "last active" value for you user in the database along with their username password etc..

then you need to have the topic or post have a date and time associated with it.

So you basically do a check

if (time of post > last time user was active) {
bold your topic }else{
dont bold your topic}

that should be the basic theory behind it, also, you need to make sure that whenever the user switches pages, that it updates their database information as being active again.
