This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (31 votes - 4.74 average) Installs: 543
Released: 28 Nov 2008 Last Update: 09 Mar 2017 Downloads: 3001
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

Note: The unread posts portion of this hack only works if you use the database thread marking system, also, this attaches itself to certain phrases in the "welcome" box and will not work if they are not present (or are modified by other code).

FYI, the Forum Marking Choices are located in vBulletin Options ;
vBulletin Options > General Settings > Thread/Forum Read Marking Type

The Read Marking options were removed from vB 3.8.11, it defaults to database marking.


** For vBulletin 3.8.11 you will need to use the Unread-posts-3811.zip **

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 the option to count the unread posts since your last visit, or all posts considered unread. This setting reflects the divider in the 'getnew' search display. There is also the option to disable the unread posts display or the new reputation comments display.

There is also the option to display the New Reputation Comments counter as a Welcome Box Notification.

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

Version 3.8.001 adds support for forums excluded if you have the "Get New/Get Daily Opt Out Modification" installed (by Andreas).
Version 3.8.004 adds support for forums excluded if you have the "Selective Forum Filter Modification" installed (by Psionic Vision).

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


History:

v3.8.001 : Initial vb 3.8 Release.
v3.8.002 : Fix forum exclusion bugs.
v3.8.003 : Fix spelling and phrase bug.
v3.8.004 : Added support for Psionic Visions Selective Forum Filter.

Yep, neither the opt out exclusions or the internal modifications exclusions were working correctly. Should be fixed in 3.8.002

I would guess you have translated one of the phrases - four phrases have been changed so you will need to revert/re-translate them.

I've got the same here, I saw this is related to some phrases that were updated but I'm still trying to seek the differences between old and new ones.

The error gives a clue as to the difference - argument 4 has been removed.

The phrase this applys to for most people is "dup_posts".

You're are right Paul, "dub_posts" is exactly the phrase related to this error.

I think I know what the problem is but I will make some tests and let people here know what I can get.

Just an update about this. It's easier to solve than it looks.

Just go to AdminCP < Language and Phrases < Get Uptaded Phrases

You'll see 4 phrases related to this mod on this list.

All phrases like: "dup_posts" "dup_noposts" and so on.

You don't actually need to translate everything again. Just locate on those phrases "/search.php?do=getnew" and you will see there is a argument after it like {4}, just delete it.
But it's not the only phrase in this situation the others on the list you'll have to do the same, just different arguments.

Upgraded

I was checking it out the XML before I uploaded it... That's a slick script!

Thanks Paul.

Hello,

I am having a problem with this product on a vB 3.8.1 forum.

The problem started after I upgraded the site from around 3.7.0 to 3.8.1.

I uninstalled the old version of this product and installed this version.

When going the control panel (usercp.php) I get this MySQL error:

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'lastrepcheck' in 'field list'

If I disable this product the error goes away.

If I disable reputation the error still appears.

If I revert the USERCP template and reinstall this product I still get the error.

Is this problem related to the XML not installing correctly?

Is there a different problem such as a bitfield file from an older version of this product sitting on the server?

Any thoughts on how to correct this and get the product working would be appreciated.

Thank you,

-Raymond
