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.

What I do know is how this works, specifically one, fully indexed select. The average vb4 page uses about 15 such queries per page. Your links show that you are already running high loads in the before screen - if adding one more indexed query to a page is having that sort of dramatic effect then your server is already on the edge of collapse.

I would suggest that you make sure that your server actually created the dateline index (which btw, is done on install, and would take a while on 2 million posts).

Dont patronise me just because you have a busy forum. Im well aware of whats involved in busy set-ups. I have had this working on high traffic forums, and indeed, added the cutoff feature at the request of one to help control high load queries that would have involved counting 1,000's of posts. You would also do well to remember that this only works on logged in members, not users, from observing your forum tonight, I would guess its more like 800 members online, not 2000 (and I cant tell what you cookie timeout is either).

Ah, I see. Well thank you for your great hack and I'm sorry others are being jerks.

Will go report as bug right now.

After upgrading to 4.0.2 my forum was using database thread marking and this mod was working great. However I didn't want database thread marking (for many other reasons and had never had the site set to this previous of the upgrade... why the upgrade changed it I don't know) so now this mod isn't quite as exciting as it was.

Paul, do you ever see this working with the Inactivity/Cookie Based option rather than the database thread marking option?

Nope.

I cant imagine why anyone would want to use that, its hopeless.

You mean the cookie based marking system? All of the users (myself included) prefer this way, which might be because we've been using it for so long. Oh well.

How on earth is cookie based marking preferable? It's almost never correct!

Perhaps it was a problem with some other setting/variable/installation but on my site we were getting 5 days of posts coming up as What's New/New Posts even when members had already looked at them. The inactivity/cookie based system is easy as it shows only what has been posted since your last visit. Seems simple to me. I don't know, I think it's strange that people would want it the other way, hah.

No problem Paul. I thought this would be my replacement for the "Welcome box" module that we used to have on vB3 with vBadvanced. That's ok though.

Hey Paul,

Back in vb 3.8, this hack used to show

"Unread posts since your last visit" on a different background, with a text saying these are posts unread from your last visit. Beforre in vb 3.8, there was a division between posts unread in the last 24 hours and another division for all other random unread posts.

While now, there is no text showing on the top before each unread thread listings. All the unread posts just shows up. I have all the recommended options turned on.

Automatic Database thread marking
Use Last Visit Date

That was a feature of vbulletin, not this mod. It does not exist in vb4.

This is one of my favorite mods but a new style I installed seemed to eliminate it showing in the upper right corner.

I'm not sure how to make this work with my new style, it works on all the others, suggestions?

Yep, and I don't understand it.

So, do I reinstall this thing or what? I'm running 4.0.5

I never made a template edit, do I need to revert? I don't know.
