New Version 2.0

I've completely overhauled this product. The earlier version cheated by marking ignored threads and forums as read before executing the get new query, so it worked only for New Posts set to get new. The way the new version works is still not elegant owing to lack of hook locations available but it gets the job done for New Posts, Today's Posts and in the Forum Home Page and Forum Display.

Other New Features:
  • Users can set where the Ignore System is enabled in their User Settings. It can be enabled for New Posts, Today's posts and Forum Home & Forum Display.

  • Ignored threads used to be listed in the User Settings by threadid, or the order in which the threads were first posted. All new additions to the ignore lists will show at the end of the list.

  • No template edits in this version. If you have already edited SHOWTHREAD and FORUMDISPLAY you can just leave the changes in place, JavaScript will set them to display:none.

  • When I developed the older version I had the database fields set with a character limit that limited how many threads could be ignored. In this version the number is unlimited.

  • This version has its own setting group and doesn't require any restrictions on Thread/Forum Read Marking Type.

Using the Ignore System

You can set a thread to ignored in the Thread Tools menu and unignore it there later if you can navigate back to it. Similarly you can ignore forums in Forum Tools menu. Thread and forum ignore lists can be edited in UserSettings.


Installation:

Upload the product XML file in Product Manager. If you have the old version, set to overwrite existing files. No edits or files to upload.

Yes, it worked for me on vBulletin 4.2.3.

I honestly don't see why you need to ask. Somebody just reported it worked on vB 4.2.2 right above.
Hence it will work on vB 4.2.3. If it doesn't, then it's an issue YOU will just have.

Hence the best way to test, is to test yourself on a test forum. Working for others, doesn't automatically mean it will work for you.

Doesn't seem to work for sub forums within different forums.....sigh.

There is a forum that many of my users don't like seeing new post for, but it also have a good dozen sub forums in it. Be quite obnoxious if they had to go within every single sub forum and click ignore.

I have two requests:

1. Anyway to also hide threads from displaying in Forum Blocks, such as Forum Threads/Posts? Currently as it stands it shows, and though it doesn't appear on the index page, it shows on the Forum Threads Block.
2. Allow Admins to place topics/forums on ignore for users, with the ability to not allow members to change it?

Thumbs up

Thanks a lot for this usefull Plugin

I did translate all phrases to German language. The only thing I've changed from original is:

"Forum Home & Forum Display"->"Portal Home & Forum Display"

Same for description. And of course I named it like that in german.

"If you leave the "Portal Home and Forum Display" option unchecked, ignored forums will display in Portal Home and as subforums......." -> "Wenn Du bei der "Portal Hauptseite & Forum Anzeige" Option kein Häckchen setzt, werden ignorierte Foren auf der Portal Hauptseite und die Unterforen......."

Thats because we use vBadvanced.

I hope I did download phrases correctly. (Include Custom Phrases & Just fetch phrases)

@nerbert: Feel free to use and include them (dont forget to change the above mentioned phrases back to "Portal Home" -> "Forum Home" and (german) "Portal Hauptseite" -> "Forum Hauptseite"

Or do whatever you want with it haha

Couple of questions.

Is there a way to only slow certain user groups to use this feature?

Also is this hard on the sever?

No, the only option is to enable/disable the product. It is coded efficiently to rely on existing query modifiers and I would say doesn't appreciably add to server strain at all.
