Hey Cyb ---- I am using CMPS and it shows No New Posts but when I go to the forum page, it shows there are new posts.

How do I get it to show correctly on the CMPS portal page?

Thanks in advance.

Cyb, excellent mod but the new posts do not decrease once they are checked. The number only goes up unless you "Mark all forums read".

Hey Cyb I love ALL of your mods! I do have a custom navbar though and when I enable this my new posts disappear. What do I need to insert to make this work?

Thanks! I've been waiting for this for 3.7.x. My only complaint is that it causes a 404 error with vbadvanced. Instead of rewriting and taking you to site.com/forums/search.php it takes you to site.com/search.php.

Any way to fix that?

------

Edit: Upon testing, it's not compatible with vbadvanced at all. It always says 'No New Posts'

-----

Edit2: For the time being, I've edited your product's php file and overwrote the install. I added an if conditional to the 0 posts condition.

I've had the same issue as the others... when I enable the hack it makes my 'new posts' link completely dissappear, and also nothing shows up (the hack makes it all just vanish).

The code in my template is the proper code that the hack is setup to replace... not sure whats wrong. Help??

*/me clicks install*

I had my doubts as to where the images should go, I just started out with putting them in root and it worked just fine.

Thanks for this sweet mod, makes the whole concept of New posts more exciting
