  • What you’re asking for is more complicated than creating a form or a simple script.

    You would need to have a field of some kind that saves values specific for each user. This field would need to be able to store multiple values so that every post they mark as read would be recorded…. a relationshipt field

    The alternative is to have a field on every post that stores multiple values to record every user that has marked it as read… a user field

    Then you would need to create an AJAX script that updates this field, whichever way you decide to go, when the user checks or unchecks this box.

    When showing this field you’d need to see if it should be checked or unchecked by comparing the post ID with the field you decide to use for this.
