new thread / post indicator

I believe that the statusicon just isnt enough to let users know there is new content in a thread, so I had an idea. Marquee (scrolling) text. The text is linked to the image that is being displayed, so if a user marks it as read, it dissapears! It works just like the image.

Installation:

Go to your ACP and go to the style manager under Styles & Templates, and for each style you want this installed for,
add the following code to the template:

forumhome_forumbit_level2_post

Find:

<a href="forumdisplay.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$forum[forumid]"><strong>$forum[title]</strong></a
Add this under it:

<if condition="$forum[statusicon] == 'new'">
<
marquee height=20 width=200 align=right direction=left behavior=scroll scrollamount="3">
<
font color=red>New Threads/Posts
</font>
</
marquee>
</if> 
and your finished.

the screen shot shows the new thread/post text which scrolls from right to left in a loop

All it shows is a scrolling "new post / threads" in red in the forum where there is a new post or thread, it's not a major change to your board so it won't screw anything up if you do it wrong
