    This is a really neat idea. Does anyone know if there is/ or how I could do something similar for outstanding assignments?

    Can you suggest some method to display the entire unread forum list with unread count? After reading the post, I guess the block that you have provided here can help in listing all the forums with unread count. Provide some of the advantages of this block too. best internet service
