(I'll preface this by stating that neither of the current stand-alone "Recent Posts" or "Recent Topics" fulfill this request.)

We'd like to see a widget that displays the latest unread posts (specific to the user).  It's appearance would be simple one-line references to the topics such as the Recent Posts Widget.

• It'd be nice if the widget had a field in its configuration for the number of unread posts to display at once.   In this manner, the administrator could choose to only show the last 10 unread posts.  In other words, if there were 50 unread posts and one were to read the first entry, the list would shift up and still 10 results would show from the remaining 49 posts.  Concurrently, if 10 posts occurred in the same thread, and that user navigated to that page, the remaining unread posts would drop to 40.

• To prevent old returning user confusion, it'd be nice if there were an end-user filter for limiting the results only to posts within the last X days (ie., default would be 30).  In this way, posts that have become outdated/irrelevant can be ignored from the window.

• In the same vein, it'd be nice if the "Recept Posts" in the forum widget could be turned off, or replaced by this "Unread Posts" widget.

Any addendums?

Any update or thoughts on this issue?

My guild's site as grown to 110+ in less than a month and our Forums are active.  This is the number one suggestion directed to me.
