Unread Messages in Moodle Forum
The Read Tracking setting lets you know if you have unread messages in forums (if you have turned it ON in the forum).
The # of unread posts appears alongside the forum name in the course blocks; it is also displayed when you enter the forum.
Turn on Tracking
Here's how to turn on tracking. (Your students have access to this setting too.)
- Go into your Profile
- In the 'Administration' block > My profile settings > Edit profile
- Under the 'General' tab > Forum tracking: Yes, highlight posts for me
