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.

I would guess this is the relevant bit for you ;

You must also make sure the template hook (header_userinfo) is present.
You new style is probably missing it.

Ah I see!

So, I apologize if this sounds stupid, but how do I add the template hook?

Its a line of code in the template that looks like this ;

{vb:raw template_hook.header_userinfo}

You need to compare the default header with your custom style header to find where to insert it.

Managed to do it, thanks.

The full code would have been much more helpful

Regardless, thanks Oh, and how do you add a space in the template? The style added a search box directly underneath where your mod shows and everything works perfect except for guests who have overlap with the search box and remember me box.

Not exactly sure what you mean as guests dont have unread posts, but everything is build from phrases, so edit them as you need.

Please see image below. If I only have an unread post, everything shows fine. When I get an unread reputation as well as a post I get this garbled mess. Any ideas? Thanks.



If it is only 1 unread post, it seems ok. See image.

You have old customised phrases in there somewhere, you need to remove them.

Paul M, it appears that folks using vbadvanced CMPS are experiencing a problem with their welcome block. See image below.


and


This is the error that occurs once your hack is installed. The folks at vbadvanced are aware of this also and as I asked there, who needs to do what to rectify this? Thanks.

The block is using and old vb phrase (last_visited_x_at_y) - this phrase is no longer used by vb4, and will get removed at some point. They need to use their own custom phrase.

I installed 4.0.3 last night, and now the "unread posts" is forced to the side of the page.

How can I fix this?
