Plugin title: Jump to Your Last Post in a Thread
Author: M1th
Site: http://www.cosforums.com (http://www.cosforums.com/)
Plugin Version: 1.5 for vBulletin 3.6.x
For vB 3.0.x version see this thread (http://showthread.php/?s=&threadid=71531).
For vB 3.5 Version 1.0 see this thread (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=96137).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


What this does:
In huge threads, having to search through pages and pages for your last post is a pain in the neck so I've decided to put an end to this with my simple plugin.

Assuming that a user has posted in a thread, when the icon is clicked (displayed on forum display, next to the attachment/sticky icons) it'll lead the user to their latest post.



-------------------
Installation time: No more than 3 minutes I'd say.
Files to edit: (none)
Templates to edit: 1 (threadbit)
Images to add: 1 (lastupost.gif )

Not a big plugin to have support for, but if you have any questions/problems, then sure. :)

Installed this plugin? Then please click INSTALL.

Special Thanks to:

But doesn't clicking into the thread automatically bring you to the first new post? I'm not sure of a situation in which this hack would be useful.

That's cookie based AFAIK. This plugin isn't.

would love this if this was in showthread as opposed to forumdisplay.

Well, the whole point to this plugin is to make things a little more efficient. And placing this in showthread will defeat that purpose. :p

That's about where I'm at on this one. :surprised:

It's such a simple mod, I've checked the template edits 3 times, they're fine. Uploaded the plugin, it's there and active and put the gif in the statusicon directory. Nothing... :confused:


Update: just in case I had something freaky going on in my style that was causing an issue, I checked it with the default sytle, still nothing.


Update: Found it. You have to select highlight a thread in which a user has posted in the forumdisplay menu... Didn't see that in the directions anywhere.

Thank you very much for taking the time and trouble to share a working hack.

Works perfect for 3.5.4

Happy Holidays!

Peace.

Handy hack :)

It works fine and everything, but for some reason the image doesn't show up. It just shows the text link to "Go to your last post"... but not the image.
It is uploaded in the correct directory as per the instructions.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Nick

Thank you so very much! :up:

Got it to work in 3.7 In the 2nd template edit replace
<if condition="$show['taglist'] OR $show['moderated'] OR $show['deletedthread'] OR $show['paperclip'] OR $show['subscribed'] OR $show['sticky'] OR $show['rexpires']">
with
<if condition="$show['taglist'] OR $show['moderated'] OR $show['deletedthread'] OR $show['paperclip'] OR $show['subscribed'] OR $show['sticky'] OR $show['rexpires'] OR $show['threadcount']">

You wouldn't have a version for 3.7.2 yet would you? I imagine it's not all that different, but it looks like it may be a little different. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Whoops! I hadn't seen that last comment. Nevermind:o

I decided to merge this with the built-in thread subscription image.
My users are automatically subscribed to all threads they post in, with no e-mail notification.

Ignore the template edits, and do this instead..
Find:
<if condition="$show['subscribed']"> <img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/subscribed.gif" alt="$vbphrase[you_are_subscribed_to_this_thread]" /> </if>Replace with:
<if condition="$show['subscribed']"><if condition="$show['threadcount']"><a href="showthread.php?$session[sessionurl]goto=lastupost&amp;t=$thread[threadid]"> <img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/subscribed.gif" border="0" alt="$vbphrase[you_are_subscribed_to_this_thread]" /></a> <else /> <img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/subscribed.gif" alt="$vbphrase[you_are_subscribed_to_this_thread]" /> </if></if>


Working on vBulletin 3.8.3.. :)

Hello.

I thought it works fine but some user said that it doesnt work in every thread they have posted. So in some Threads the icon is there and in some other it isnt. Any Idea?

My users clamoured for this, so now it's installed and working in 3.8.3. Looks like I made a modification similar to / the same as the 3.7 mod above to get it to work. (Also -- used the template management system mod to install -- was very easy.)

It works fine, but somehow it REMOVES the default "go to last new post" when you read all the posts.
Usually that would be there always, even if you read all posts... you could always jump to the last post. now its gone...

Help?

I've been searching for this mod for 4.0.7, and can't find anything. Any chance of getting this for 4.0? :-)
