Thread Reader Enhancements
Mod Version: 4.2.0.0, by Paul M (Member) Paul M is offline
Developer Last Online: Jan 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (26 votes - 4.92 average) Installs: 183
Released: 26 May 2012 Last Update: Never Downloads: 479
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This adds the following enhancements to the vB core Who has read a Thread feature.

1. Option to turn on the who read cutoff date (reset) function
2. Restrict use of reset function to certain usergroups.
3. Clicking on a user will display a page of their thread viewing history, most recent first.
4. Restrict the list of reader names to certain usergroups.
5. Restrict the list of recent threads a member has read to certain usergroups.

The set/reset facility allows members to click on the 'set' link which then sets a personal 'cutoff' time - only showing who has read the thread after that time.
The time can be reset as many times wanted, and also completely cleared again.

There is also a link to allow you to view a seperate list of all readers of the thread, this is where the ip will be shown [if you have permission].

Warning: When using the set/reset option - there is only a limited capacity of entries per thread (several thousand) - therefore you should only allow this feature to be used by a limited number of people - typically Staff usergroups. Allowing all members to use it will probably slow down your forum and cause errors if more than about 3000 members set a date on one thread.

Note: When using the set/reset facility, the data is still kept beyond this limit, so they can be changed at any time.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Thread Reader Enhancements

To install, download the zip, extract the XML file and import using the vb Product Manager.

Hi Paul, am I looking in the wrong place, or is the Days Limit somehow missing from my control panel?

You seem to be missing several options, all of which are standard in all 4.2.x versions.

Are you sure you are runing 4.2 ?
If so I suggest you make sure you have all the latest 4.2.x files uploaded, and re-run the upgrader (and remember to remove the install folder again after).

Any idea why certain public threads that were created since installation of this add-on would not show any visitor instances? The specifics are that I've had this mod installed and working since 2014 and am now finding that any members who have posted to threads prior to September 23, 2015 are not shown within the "Members who have read this thread" display. Is there something that could account for no greater than a 6-month retention period? Or might something else be wrong? No other issues have been noted. The directive at Options > Thread Display Options (showthread) > Who Read - Days Limit is, and has always been set to zero (0).


EDIT:
On the help item for Who Read - Days Limit, it says:
Set this to 0 to display all readers. bear in mind that this will also be affected by the automatic clean-up routine that deletes old records from the contentread table.
Maybe that's the problem. The auto clean-up is biffing the old records. But would it be after 6 months?

As I mentioned in my first post, it has always been set to zero (0), as it still is.
