Please remember to click Mark as Installed if you use this modification.
Please fee free to nominate this modification for the MOTM, and/or use the donate link provided (Support Developer).

The reputation options [in this colour] are only in the 4.1 version as the functionality is included in the 4.2 core.

This displays the actual number of posts that are still considered unread by you (and will show up in a 'getnew' search).

It also displays the number of new reputation comments since you last checked your usercp.

There is also an option to put back the members last visit date, which was removed in vb4. There is the choice to count the unread posts since your last visit, or all posts considered unread. This setting reflects where the divider in the 'getnew' search display used to be (apparently its no longer displayed).

There is also the option to disable the unread posts display or the new reputation comments display. New Reputation Comments are shown in the Notifications section.

This modifications settings are located in vBulletin Options > Display Unread Posts and Reputation.

The unread posts functionality requires that database thread marking is active.
Please be aware that installing this will enable that system (with automatic forum marking).
Forum marking choices are located in vBulletin Options > General Settings > Thread/Forum Read Marking Type

To install this hack unzip the xml file and import it using the ACP Product Manager.

** This is not compatible with vBulletin 4.0.0 or 4.0.1 **

This no longer needs the previously required template edit - a template hook is now provided in the Header template. If you install this version on a previously modified forum you must revert that edit if you have applied it. You must also make sure the template hook (header_userinfo) is present.

Just upgraded to 4.0.2 and updated this MOD. Works just fine except now regular users (or others who do not have permissions to view) can see the excluded "staff" forums when pulling up the new posts search.

Type: Posts; Excluded Forums: Champion's Tower, Forum Games, Reports and Infractions, Contributor Forum; New Posts

The account I tested this on does have permission to view Forum Games, but not the others. Minor nitpick but still would like a fix. Thanks.

I cannot do anything about that - its standard vb functionality. If you think it doesnt work properly then you need to log a bug at vb.com.

Really?

So how you can explain this:

w/o hack:

unread-posts1.jpg

2min after enabled:

unread-posts2.jpg

6min after enabled:

unread-posts3.jpg

If remain active for 1 hour load goes to 90-100


Of-course will work on baby boards with small numbers of members online but did you tried on board with 2000 users online
