Another Forum I use regularly (and nothing to do with SAABs) is also run using phpbb. The layout & features are almost identical to UKSSAB's, but they have one feature i find extremely useful, and that's an 'Unread Replies' counter in addition to the standard white icon = "all messages read" / orange icon = "thread contains unread messages". Not only does this let you know how active a particular thread is (only one reply, or dozens) but clicking on the counter takes you straight to the oldest unread message. Here it seems the only way to view unread messages is to scroll through the thread until you see messages you don't remember reading before.

Is that a difficult thing to implement, or am I missing something?

Click on the little orange bit before the thread title. If it's not orange, there are no unread posts.

Yes, that's the standard white icon = "all messages read" / orange icon = "thread contains unread messages" I referred to in my post above. :) On UKSAABS it's a 'binary' function - either there ARE unread messages or there AREN'T. On the other forum, you can see at a glance how many unread messages there are, and navigate straight to them.
