mrpijey found a small bug on the forum which resulted in a nice feature being added.
Normally you would see a "Mark forums read" link next to FAQ, Search, etc. However it would only work if you were on the forum index, and would just take you to the current page if anywhere else on the forum. As a result, I had to fix it, and found out a new feature.
Now when on the forum index it reads "Mark forums read" and marks all forums and topics read on the entire forum. Inside a forum, it changes to "Mark topics read" and marks all topics in the current forum read, rather than all of them on the forum. Inside a topic, it disappears since there is no use for it.
