This modification is no longer supported.
It will remain available for download and use, but the thread is no longer monitored.

This displays who has read a thread, and the time they last looked at it.

Hovering over a name will show when the member last viewed the thread, and (optionally) what IP address they viewed it from (Note: as of v3.34 you can only view the ip addresses in the 'View-All' display).

There is now an option to allow a thread author to view who has read their thread when they are not in one of the allowed usergroups. The IP and number of days restrictions still apply.

A new time set/reset facility has been added. Members allowed to use this facility can click on the 'set' link and it will set a personal 'cutoff' time - only showing who has read the thread after that time. The time can be reset as many times as you want, and also completely cleared again. When using this facility there is also a link to allow you to view a seperate list of all readers of the thread.

A cron job has now been added that can (optionally) delete records from the whoread table that are over a certain age - this is provided for large forums where the number of table entries can start to reach a million or more after 12 months. The delete age is a setting in the ACP.

Warning: When using the set/reset option - there is only a limited capacity of entries per thread (several thousand) - therefore you should only allow this feature to be used by a limited number of people - typically Staff usergroups. Allowing all members to use it will probably slow down your forum and cause errors if more than about 3000 members set a date on one thread.


There are settings for the following (in vBulletin Options > Who Has Read a Thread) ;

1. Turn the system on/off.
2. Restrict the display to certain usergroups
3. Restrict the IP display to certain usergroups.
4. Restrict the display to a set number of days.

New in v3.28

5. Option to allow thread author to view who read information.
6. Option to turn on the who read cutoff date (reset) function
7. Restrict use of reset function to certain usergroups.
8. Option to set whoread data records to be cleaned out after xxx days.

New in v3.39

9. Clicking on a user will display a page of their thread viewing history, most recent first.


Note: When using option 4 or the set/reset facility, the data is still kept beyond this limit, so they can be changed at any time.

Download the zip, extract the XML file and import using the vb Product Manager.

Question A Little Help...

Download the zip, extract the XML file and import using the vb Product Manager.
This is the first Product I've tried to D/L & Install, so bare with me here...

I D/L'd the file, unzipped it, uploaded it via the Product Manager and it all seemed to work just fine.

However, when I logged into my vBulletin Forum (v3.6.0) I didn't see any difference. So I went back and reviewed the Thread Display Options and noticed you needed to be in groups 5,6,7 to see the effect. I added a trailing 2 to that list, saved it, then went and logged in as a registered user just to see what it looked like. Still no difference. Lastly, I removed the trailing 2, then went and logged in as Admin to see it. Still no difference.

What am I doing wrong, or what have I failed to do?

Thanxx.

Maybe I'm just misunderstanding what it is supposed to do.

Do you mean when your cursor 'hovers' over a name that the info should pop up so you can see it?

Or do you mean, 'hovering' above the name in a banner you should see this?

Here's what my screen looks like logged in as Admin and as a Normal Registered user viewing a post by adwt.
(Note: The upper right hand corner of the pics.)

I assume you have it turned on ?

There are no pictures in your post, a link to your forum would help.

Yes, I've got the Radio Button toggled to Yes alright.

I attached 2 .GIF files and they show up as thumbnails beneath my post.

Anyway, here's a LINK to my forums at:

The attachments are there now, but they seem to be pictures of specific posts, this is a thread display, it appears at the bottom of the thread (under Quick Reply, above the posting rules).
