Mod Version: 3.8.004, by Paul M (Member) Paul M is offline

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (31 votes - 4.74 average) Installs: 542
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As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

Thanks for the mod, Paul M.
Do you think it's possible to have an option so that we can set the forums we want to be included?
It would be useful if we only want a few forums to be included instead of the exclude option.

I cannot answer that until we see how v4 works, but unlikely for the moment, I dont actually use the blogs.

Any idea how to get the link to work with Vba CMPS, the link goes to "link not found" on my homepage. It's fine in the forums area though.

As Paul mentioned above, you can "use the links path setting in the mods options."

Go to: vBulletin Options>Display Unread Posts and Reputation. In Links Prefix Path, put something like: "http://www.yousite.com/forums/" since search.php is in there.

You should only need the /forums/ part.

Thanks for releasing a useful mod, Paul.

I'm curious if there's a way the script can look for "<!-- unread posts -->" instead of (where highlighted in red):


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.



When I replace the red with "<!-- unread posts -->" it gave me a parse error. As a resolve I either removed $unread (in blue) or removed the red (shown below):


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


The mod seems to work when either edit was applied. Is that ok or is there a more efficient way of doing it?

Sorry, Im not following what your trying to do (or why ?).

FYI, It doesnt look for anything, it appends itself to the relevant phrase.

In your previous version there was a section in vB Options to specify the area which Unread Post codes would attach to using ATCS (Automatic Template Changes System). I wanted to do that with this version since my navbar is modified.

I've successfully moved $unread so the mod will display where I want it to (and not after last visited phrase) by commenting out those lines of codes. I was just wondering if by commenting out those lines of codes (below) would harm vB or the codes in any way:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

That was only in a couple of the 3.6 versions in mid 2007, for the last two years (since v1.22) it has used the phrase system.

Nope, commenting them out will not affect anything else.
