Hi everyone :)

So IPB have a tab called "Unreplied Topics" that you can enable. This tab will list every threads that have no replies, allowing you to see which threads would need attention since someone is waiting for assistance/reply/etc. You also have the possibility to exclude threads from showing in this tab. I see that forums like GeeksToGo and WhatTheTech have that tab enabled, and others like BleepingComputer and Malwarebytes don't. Is there any reasons for that? If not, is it possible to enable it? Personally I use it all the time on GeeksToGo to see which threads have no replies in and it also allows you to find threads that have 0 replies and that have been posted for quite a long time. Maybe the reason it's not enabled is that BleepingComputer is so big that thousands of threads would come up when going in that tab, but isn't possible to add a maximum date, like 2 weeks in it?

Let me know what you think!

Thank you :)

Edit: Oupsies, I have a small typo in my thread title. Should be "Enable" and not "Enabled", if a mod could correct it, I would appreciate it! :P

This is not a default feature but rather a IPB hook/app that you need to install.

Really? I thought it was a default thing from IPB since I've seen it on other IPB forums and it seemed to "fit" in. Would you consider adding it? :P
