Add an "Unread" link to the Inbox sidebar

Add an "Unread" link to the Inbox sidebar

Short, concise description of the idea
Add a link to the Inbox sidebar that allows users to display just the Unread messages in their Inbox.

Full description of the idea
On the left-hand side of the Inbox, under the "All" header, add an additional link "Unread" which, when clicked, causes the Inbox to display only the messages that have not been marked as read.

This idea is essentially the same as that discussed here, but I am resubmitting it because it has now been implemented on Dreamwidth. This may make it simpler to implement on LiveJournal, if the Dreamwidth developers are willing to share the code.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Easier to identify and manage unread messages without paging through multiple screens of messages
  • Makes the Inbox more like a conventional messaging client, and hence more useful.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Dreamwidth's code for this feature might no longer be compatible with LiveJournal.
  • Someone will have to check the code and commit it.
