I wanted to implement a hack that would color code the threads that are unread -- above and beyond the link bolding. So I implemented this hack that will change the color of the background.

Here's what you do.

Go into the Main CSS of the template. Add the following in "Additional CSS Definitions" box:

/* ***** change thread color for unread ***** */
.unread {
background-color: #fefdf0 !important;
}Now go to your threadbit template and look for:

<td class="alt1" id="td_threadtitle_$thread[realthreadid]" title="$thread[preview]">Add this code (in red):

<td class="<if condition="$show['gotonewpost']">unread </if>alt1" id="td_threadtitle_$thread[realthreadid]" title="$thread[preview]">And voila!

Click here for a live demo. (http://www.copywritersboard.com/copywriting-discussion/)

Hope this helps!

Seams to change the color of the read threads, not the unread ones.

I don't suppose it would be possible to get the code inserted into a text document to download for people that want to use this; but not go code diving atm? (like myself)
