FYI, I've added a new navigation bar choice TRENDING. Unlike the recent topics and recent posts submenu choices under MENU, trending topics are ranked by number of views and some degree of recency. Trending topics are handy if you want to see what's new versus what threads are simply getting replies.

Any way to get the trending topic to not include my read threads or to only show unread trending topics?

Thanks for the suggestion. I've noticed that the order of trending topics gets "noisy" after 10 or 15 items, so I've limited it to 20 and change the listing to display them on a single page. So it's effectively a "top 20 trending topics". Given they fit on one page, I don't see a need to filter it further by read items.
