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. But not to worry, you can now check out the new 3.8.x version of this hack which will work with v3.7.x, as well as with 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 both vBulletin v3.6.x and v3.7.x.


What Does This Hack Do?

This is an hack adds an extra option to the Search this Forum drop down list in forum display, that additionally allows you to search for unanswered threads by forum (including child forums if enabled). This can be useful for example, if you have some of your forums dedicated to support issues and want to filter by unanswered support threads, just in that forum (and child forums if enabled).

There have been a few threads that mentioned template edits for allowing to view all unanswered threads in all forums (not like this hack which is by forum, not the entire site), vb.org uses a variation of that template edit. This hack is different, but based on the idea, and allows more control over the results.

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

AdminCP settings for this hack available in vBulletin Options > Search For Unanswered Threads By Forum.
Settings that can be changed are:
  1. Usergroup permissions - which groups will be able to use Search For Unanswered Threads By Forum
  2. Search child forums - enable/disable
  3. Turn off cached results - enable/disable
  4. Search Text For Auto Template Injection - leave alone unless you know what you are doing. But if you need to manually edit the FORUMDISPLAY template because the auto template injection does not work, you will need to use the contents of the UnansweredThreadsByForum template to do so.

Installation Instructions
  1. Import product-jd_20070818.xml into vB using the AdminCP Product Manager. If upgrading then set Allow Overwrite to Yes.
  2. Alter the settings in the Admin CP to your liking.

It would be good to have a capability to search posts, where latest answer does not belong to thread starter or to specific user group. It is good when there is a group of support staff is responsible for answering user's tickets (I use VB as a ticket support system).

I already had something similar on our forum: a fixed search query added to a menu, just using the following link:

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

With NN being the ID of the forum to look for this.

Anyway, your mod with customizable access rights is so much better

One question though: how do you define "unanswered threads"? Just by "zero answers" like my simple attempt did, or do you recognize threads where the original poster has just pushed his question as well (aka: all threads where no one but the OP has posted yet are unanswered)? That later one would be a really cool feature if it isn't in there yet!

Well, for me it is working on 3.6.8
Have you all taken a look at the AdminCP options? You need to set up which user groups may have access to it.
