Not Supported Translations  

This modification is no longer available or supported.

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


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 3.7.004 adds the following ;

A forum exclusion list - requested a number of times, an option is provided to exclude forums from the unread count & display.

A time limit on unread posts count - if a member has not visited for more than x days then a simple unread posts link will be displayed, not an actual count, this stops potential large sql queries if you have a busy forum. The option can be disabled.



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


History:

v3.7.001 : First Release for vb 3.7.
v3.7.002 : Added Notification Display Option for Reputation Comments.
v3.7.003 : Internal version, not released.
v3.7.004 : Added time limit and forum exclusion list.
v3.7.005 : Fixed path bug in welcome box notification.
v3.7.006 : Slight change to accomodate customised navbars still using vb 3.6 code.
v3.7.007 : Fix potential database error if lastrepcheck is blank, rare, but it can happen it seems.

Is there a way to unlink the unread posts so that it only displays the amount in text without a link to start reading the unread posts?

Thank you

Is it possible to display this to members only? I don't see where this inserts itself in to the navbar template.

FYI - "Display Unread Posts" is a specific phrase (dup_unread_posts) - are you sure you have translated that phrase.
