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As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

Oh. I've been using an older version (1.21) all this time. Thanks, Paul, for the assurance.

Is there a way to make this display "Unread Posts" as it does here on this site? (top right)

Hey,

Can you please also add support for my modification of Andreas's hack, which is "Selective Forum Filter"?

Thanks.

Question

Paul-

My older, pre updated version is working fine on 3.8.4 with no issues, is there anything to be gained by updating? I know it may sound a daft question but I'm a firm believer in if it aint broke etc....

I'll go ahead and update that I gave this a try and it seems to work. I tested it on one forum I chose to exclude, made a post with my test account in that excluded forum, checked back on my normal account and the unread post wasn't showing in the navbar. I went back into my options and reset the exclusion list and then the unread post showed up like it should have originally before exclusion.

I'm going to keep using the version attached because I can't tell that it doesn't work with Psionic Vision's mod.

Just check the version number in your ACP.

Thanks for confirming it works, I'll release it as the main version.

Yes? No? You're working on it? Or is this the wrong mod to achieve what I'm trying to do?

Not really hard to install and see if it's what you want but I've provided a screenshot for you to see what it does. It's not exactly 100% a mirror copy of the one on this site but work with the phrases and if you want a 100% exact mirror copy of the way the one on here is then you could achieve that...

Thanks for sharing. I had it installed but could not get it to display in that area. I'm still trying. Is there anything you can share that would help me?

It's supposed to be up there by default. Maybe you have modified your navbar template and accidently removed that hook? Have a link to your site?

In the vb options I had "Thread/Forum Read Marking Type" on Inactivity/Cookie Based. I changed it to Database (automatic forum marking) and now it's working! Thanks so much for the help.
