This hack will show how many new posts/threads have been posted in forums since 'last visit' time. "New Posts" in navbar menu will be replaced with "New Posts: x (In y Threads)" which is updated via AJAX - no page refresh. User can manually check for new posts, or you can enable auto-check which is executed in defined time interval. Optionally you can enable and configure Smart Search Menu to give users ability to search only selected forum sections. See screenshots...

Wondering the same thing:

Also, is there any reason this plugin would slow down the forum? It seems the load times hang a lot more with this enabled and I even got a 500 internal server error once. Just curious if anyone else if having this problem.

As soon as i install this the new post button is gone completely in one style.
In the default style it is working so it seems it has to do with modified headers.

when i disable the product i regain the button.

Maybe you can tell me how to manually install this and tell me witch i need to replace with what.

Same here. The number of unread posts does not decrease.
Please note that there will be no further updates to my addons, especially they will not be upgraded for vB5. I'm leaving vB, since IB choose to go the banana-way yet again.

2 questions:

How do I get rid of that (in 1 thread, in 2 threads) bit in parenthesis? I can't afford the room in my navbar.

How do I get rid of the underlined text - all my other navbar items have no underline. Having New Posts underlined wrecks the uniformity of it.

Oops nevermind, the hack doesn't work properly anyway. I read the new posts, click on the top banner to go to forumhome, and it keep saying that # of posts are new again.

Thanks anyway.

Your other hacks are usually good though.

Hey, just need to check - once this is added it won't give birth to the security token error?

Has the line of code been added so that it works with the security token feature?

Just been having a lot of issues with this + mods

Same problem here, on some pages the new posts is set to none, on others esp forum home it still displays there are new posts. While there aren't any.
However, for some reason clicking "Mark Forums Read" does clear the new posts and put it back to "No New Posts"

Amazing. 2 Questions:

1) Is there a way to use the "NEW POSTS IN" dropdown feature without using the "X new posts in Y new threads"?

2) When you choose what specific forums users can see "New Posts In" - is there a way to combine these and have it show new posts in ALL the forums you identify at once instead of 1 by 1?
