    Change Status of a Message from Read to Unread


    How hard is it to change to status of Message in our admin section from "Read" to "Unread" ?

    We receive messages in our admin section and once a message is read we would like to be able to change the status of the message from "read" back to "Unread".

    Is that a rather easy thing to do or could this be complicated ?

    Thank you !

    We have absolutely no idea. We don't know about your system, this admin section, how it works... anything at all about it.

    Odds are it would be a fairly easy change.

    thanks for getting back.

    What information do you need ? Would you be able to fix that ?

    Can I send you a screen shot ?

    I can't do it for you. If you're willing to pay someone we have a Hire a Programmer forum you can ask in.

    Otherwise we can try to guide you through it but it will take a lot of time and effort. We'll need to see lots of code; the place(s) where messages are marked as unread, to start.

    But your best bet is to track down whoever wrote the system in the first place and get them to add this feature in.

    It is same as to hit the counter.Set one counter=0 if user click the msg counter becomes 1 else 0.
    All 1 are read msg
    and 0 are for unread msg
