Any way to mark post as read?


Often I see a subject for a post I have no interest in, such as for a different platform. Right now I have to view that post to mark it as read, which is a pain. Is there a simple way to mark it read, or even delete it? My gmail reader makes it easy.

This is not the same request I made earlier to mark all posts as read. Mark all as seen?. There is a Dismiss All button to do that.


As far as I know, there is no way to mark a post as read without at least viewing it once. But perhaps there is a key command?

I usually see the new posts in the ‘New posts’ page and if I don’t want to read them all I just hit the “Dismiss New” button at the bottom of the screen after I’ve read the ones that appeal to me.
