Is there a way to have topics I've posted on highlighted?

I've noticed that on some other forums that a thread I have contributed to comes up in a different colour (or something) and shows that I have made a post on that thread.

This is useful especially when someone resurrects an old thread.

Just wondering?

I have found that the most useful way for me to browse the forum is to use the "view topics since last visit" option that way I can always see what is new and I usually know when I have contributed.

The new phpBB 3 has this feature, or at least a forum I'm on that uses it has. PowerSwitch uses phpBB 2.

I've had a search on the phpBB modifications database and forums, but I can't see anything that will do this out of the box. If there's enough interest I could look at writing a mod myself, it strikes me as a fairly straightforward thing to do.

In principle we could upgrade to phpBB3, but it's not currently a supported option from the hosting provider.

There's the "View your posts" link in the top right, and the "Watch this topic" link in the bottom left. Maybe a combination of the two can do what you want?
