This is my first hack ever, I hope everything goes well. I called it ViewPosts.

Latest version: 1.0

What does it do?: It replaces the 'New Posts' button in the navigation bar with a popup menu (for those that have it enabled) containing extra functionality to search for threads or posts with one click of a button.

What are these new functions?:
- Your Posts -- This will return a list of all of your own posts, call it an ego search.
- Unanswered Threads -- This will give you a list of all those threads that have 0 replies. Could be useful for support forums.
- Threads you've started -- A list of threads you've created. Made a thread last night and it's all the way at page 6 at a fast moving forum? In that case, this would be really useful.

Install Instructions:
Installing is easy, it only takes a couple of template modifications and a few new phrases. There's also a file you need to upload in your forum root directory, it's called viewposts.php (attached).

Template modifications:
In template navbar find the first occurrence of:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace it with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

In template navbar find the following:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add the following before:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

In template search_results find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace it with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add the following phrases to the phrase group GLOBAL (phrase name: phrase):
your_posts_nav: Your Posts
view_posts_nav: View Posts

unanswered_posts_nav: Unanswered Threads
own_threads_nav: Threads you've started

Works like a charm on 3.0.1, I think it'll work on 3.0.0 too but haven't tested this myself.

Well, you have to have search enabled for starters. Also you have to be able to see the other popup menus (like search, quick links) otherwise you'll just see a New Posts button.

That's strange, I just registered to your site and didn't see it either. Are you 100% sure you made the template modifications in the navbar template? If you are, could you please pm me the contents of your navbar template, then I can look into it.

I would, but that's already in the User CP right? That's where you see a list of new subscribed threads.

There's a slight difference...you're talking about subscribed threads (threads that you started / replied to / manually subscribed to). I'm talking about subscribing to a forum.
