How can I show only unread discussions for users?

I am wondering if this is possible:
How can I show only unread discussions?

Since every user has read different discussions so far, this page would look different for each user.

I am also not refering to new comments, but discussions only?

Thanks in advance,

    I hope you don't want a mod, but if you find a bug let me know.
    Let me know if it works as advertised.

    @peregrine: Many thanks, it does work as advertised!

    I hope I am not too picky, but I would love to change/add two things:
    1. The language of the button (since my forum readers are German)

    around line 23 in default.php
        echo '<input type="button"  class="Button" id="toggleButton" value="Read+-" />';
        echo '<input type="button"  class="Button" id="toggleButton" value="Fahrvergnügen+-" />';
    1. I would like to additionally put a link in the top menu (where "dashboard" and "activities" are located) that leads to the "only unread discussions" view.

    I'll ponder on it, can't promise. If I can easily, I will, check back in a few weeks, if I can I will update plugin.

    PS: On a minor note: Maybe the plugin title "OnlyRead" is a bit misleading? In my understanding "Show_OnlyUnread" or similar would hit the mark more accurately?

    You are correct, unfortunately there is no way to change the name and replace with new version, without getting somebody to help on the vanilla forum side.

    Think of it this way "Only Read" discussions are hidden" :)

    But anyway: Thanks again for your fast and helpful reply.
