Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored. You can now check out the 3.8.x version of this hack, as it also works with v3.7.5, v3.6.12 (and maybe even earlier versions).

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with v3.6.10 and v3.7.x. This has not been tested with earlier versions of v3.6.x, but should work.

This is an hack adds an extra option to the Search drop down list on the nav bar which allows you to search for unanswered threads forum-wide, apart from the forums you choose to exclude from the search.

This hack was created as a result of a request from Boofo - see here.

There are no file or template changes at all, and is fully phrased.

AdminCP settings for this hack available in vBulletin Options > Forum-wide Search For Unanswered Threads.
Settings that can be changed are:
  1. Usergroup permissions - which groups will be able to see the Unanswered Threads link (no usergroups can use this by default)
  2. Exclude Forums - list of forums to exclude from the search for unanswered threads
  3. Turn off cached results - enable/disable

Installation Instructions
  1. Import ms_search_all_unanswered.xml into vB using the AdminCP Product Manager. If upgrading then set Allow Overwrite to Yes.
  2. Alter the settings in the Admin CP vBulletin Options to your liking.

*installed* Thanks for the cool hack! I have a custom navbar so I altered the code to make it work for me. I changed the plugin code to:


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

(let me know if you want me to delete this)

This way I could just insert the $unanswered variable where I needed the link to be.

Thanks again!

No need to delete it, other people may have a custom navbar, they may want to use it.

Thanks for sharing

if a user does not have permission to view a forum, will a zero response post still show up in their search?

No, unfortunately not, having the zero basically blocks everyone. You will have to add every usergroup you want to see the link.

No, it will not, forum permissions still apply

If the user is in a usergroup that does not have permissions to see a forum, then unanswered threads from that forum will not show up for that user.

My drop-down only appears under "Search this Forum" but not also under "Search" on the top nav bar.
Is this correct behavior of the mod?

Thanks

That is because you are actually using my Search For Unanswered Threads By Forum hack, I can see that you have not downloaded this hack, and it is the correct behaviour for that hack.

Also this hack uses a template hook that is associated with the search drop down menu in the navbar, so it is impossible that this hack would show under Search this Forum (unless someone moved the template hook to that location and changed the plugin location), and in closing, that means that you are using my Search For Unanswered Threads By Forum hack and not this one.

Btw, click Mark as Installed in my Search For Unanswered Threads By Forum hack thread please.
