    Question Forum Development

    I have a general idea on the components of a forum I'm building with php & Mysql. I am stumped on how to integrate a popular feature forums have such as phpBB.

    This feature tells the user the topics that are unread and which forum sections have unread topics in them.

    I believe my best option is to store Last viewed times of post in a user cookie. What do you think. Thanks for your time.

    Create a table referencing to both: users and topics. And when a certain user reads a certain message, add (user_id, topic_id) pair to the table.
