The improvements here are wonderful and appreciated, but I'm missing a nice feature we had on the old website:
It was a system for marking archive entries as read, and it really helped when working through a long list of entries during an archive search.
One difference between the old and new websites might make implementing this feature tricky. On the old site, my archive search returned a listing of single posts, and the option to see an entire thread was available within a single post. Whereas the new website seems to be organized by threads and not single posts.
Presently, when reading an entry and using the Back Key to return to the archive search listing, after reading and clicking through several entries on the listing, I'm not able to determine the last entry I read on the search listing. Sometimes it seems like using the Back Key is not always returning to the exact location on the listing page.
A text color system was used in the old website's archive listing, making it easy to see exactly what I had already read in the search listing. Could we have some kind of "marked as read" system in the archive search listings? If we already have such a system, would you please explain how to use it?
