Who has read a Thread

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (59 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 1030

Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

This modification is no longer available or supported.

This displays who has read a thread, and the time they last looked at it.

Hovering over a name will show when the member last viewed the thread, and (optionally) what IP address they viewed it from (Note: as of v3.34 you can only view the ip addresses in the 'View-All' display).

There is now an option to allow a thread author to view who has read their thread when they are not in one of the allowed usergroups. The IP and number of days restrictions still apply.

A new time set/reset facility has been added. Members allowed to use this facility can click on the 'set' link and it will set a personal 'cutoff' time - only showing who has read the thread after that time. The time can be reset as many times as you want, and also completely cleared again. When using this facility there is also a link to allow you to view a seperate list of all readers of the thread.

A cron job has now been added that can (optionally) delete records from the whoread table that are over a certain age - this is provided for large forums where the number of table entries can start to reach a million or more after 12 months. The delete age is a setting in the ACP.

Warning: When using the set/reset option - there is only a limited capacity of entries per thread (several thousand) - therefore you should only allow this feature to be used by a limited number of people - typically Staff usergroups. Allowing all members to use it will probably slow down your forum and cause errors if more than about 3000 members set a date on one thread.


There are settings for the following (in vBulletin Options > Who Has Read a Thread) ;

1. Turn the system on/off.
2. Restrict the display to certain usergroups
3. Restrict the IP display to certain usergroups.
4. Restrict the display to a set number of days.

New in v3.28

5. Option to allow thread author to view who read information.
6. Option to turn on the who read cutoff date (reset) function
7. Restrict use of reset function to certain usergroups.
8. Option to set whoread data records to be cleaned out after xxx days.

New in v3.39

9. Clicking on a user will display a page of their thread viewing history, most recent first.


Note: When using option 4 or the set/reset facility, the data is still kept beyond this limit, so they can be changed at any time.

Download the zip, extract the XML file and import using the vb Product Manager.

Yes, get you now; I much preferred the hover option rather than opening a window, but nevertheless, a nice 'thread history' addition! Thx!

I've installed this modification on my site. The only thing is, I don't like the display on the bottom of the thread. I saw a similar mod on another vb board where it was at the TOP of the thread and it looked MUCH better.

It would be EXCELLENT if you could somehow update this mod to show up on top one of these days.

Sorry, but thats never going to happen, the vbulletin default is to show it at the bottom, if you want it elsewhere then you have to customise it yourself.

I saw another post in this thread where someone asked you how that could be done and you simply said that it was not possible.

If it IS possible to customize it, please tell me how.

You can display the table in only a select number of forums. What you need to do is update the template "Display_Readers". The first two lines read as so:


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

Take this line:

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

and change it to this:

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

n is set to the forum you want this table to display in.

Good luck!

Yes, you should upgrade - the cron cleanup will not function in 3.7 - also a couple of minor bugs have been fixed.

I moved to a new webhosting provider and the information being tracked by Who has read A thread didn't move. The "Who has read a thread" box for each thread was wiped completely out and started over. Is this normal? Is this information stored in the database or is there a file I need to pull in?

Its stored in a database table, so I guess you somehow didnt migrate that table properly.
