I want to undo "MARK ALL MESSAGES AS READ"
« on: September 24, 2013, 10:45:39 pm »
I accidentally hit that button again, when intending to hit "MARK SELECTED READ" on the Recent Unread Topics page.   :-[

Any chance I can get a "MARK ALL MESSAGES AS UNREAD" button, or at least a bit of code I could stick in the URL to get this effect?

Yes, I realize this would make nearly 4 years of topics appear unread on my account, but I've got no problem with marking them "read" by hand again.

Although it's not a common request, I see I'm not the first one to inquire about it:

but it looks like there's nothing I can do on the end-user level...

I think you'd better make a mod request for this feature. Since it can be done for member for a specific topic (thread), I'm sure it wouldn't be a huge leap to mark all messages unread.
So, any help here Max?  :'(

I have just similar request about unread posts. When I have more than one page of unread posts, I open some on the first page in new tab, then I go to the 2nd page, trying to see what pages I didn't read, but the list of unread messages is shortened for those I already opened, so many unread messages on 2nd page are now on 1st page, so I have to return to it again...  :(

I am certain that there would be an easier thing to not refresh the list until we leave the page or that the unread posts are opened on the last page first and we could open posts from reverse. Maybe there is a better solution?

I've had a look in to this, and it's not an easy feature to provide...

There are no good SMF add-ons for it, and I can't provide a simple button that does the opposite of 'mark all as read', so that sucks.
