1. How do I display the "(new)" label in comments listing page.
  2. What is the logic of displaying the "(new)" label. How does it work?

1 Answer 1


There is a database table called history that records a users history to check against. There is an option in Views to add a 'new' marker to content that has not been viewed by the user and had been created within a certain time frame. If you are further interested in how the 'new' marker works, you can find the query that Views uses in views/modules/comment/views_handler_field_node_new_comments.inc to add the 'new' tag to a list of fields.

(edited for clarity)

  • Is there any module for that so as "new comments" marked as 'New' ?
