ThreadNav: scrolling New Posts navigation bar for Showthread

Developer Last Online: Aug 2017 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (14 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 61
Released: 07 Nov 2011 Last Update: 18 Jan 2015 Downloads: 373
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

ThreadNav(2.1) puts almost all the information in New Posts or Today's Posts in a compact scrolling navigation bar in the thread display page (showthread). The location in showthread depends on the user's thread viewing settings. Buttons on either end scroll the list of new posts right or left and additional information is available in a drop down box when you hover over the lower portion of the post cell. The list automatically refreshes using AJAX once a minute (default).

In Version 2.1 you can now place ThreadNav in any vBulletin page. A simple setting will put it in Forum Home (index) and it can be added to other pages with a simple template edit (See instuctions in ThreadNav settings in your AdminCP for edits).

Updated Version 2.1
I've updated this recently to make it fully compatible with updates to Thread & Forum Ignore System, if it is installed. I also got rid of the text jiggle in some browsers when you hover over a cell to display the drop box.

Features:

General:
  • Searches for New Posts or Today's Posts
  • List scrolls right or left with buttons at ends
  • Automatically refreshes once a minute (default setting)
  • Cell width adjusts automatically to fit available space
  • Hovering over lower portion of partially exposed cell
    snaps the cell into full view
  • Automatically integrates with Thread & Forum Ignore System
    if installed
In the cell for each thread:
  • Go to first unread post button (New Posts only)
  • Thread link goes to either first or last post depending
    on user settings for viewing threads
  • Name of last poster
  • Last post button
In the drop down box:
  • Date/time
  • Forum
  • Thread starter
  • Peplies
  • Views
  • Links for previewing first and last posts
User settings:
  • Turn ThreadNav off
  • Get New Posts
  • Get Today's Posts
Admin Control Panel:
  • On/off
  • Other pages to show ThreadNav
  • Set refresh interval
  • Maximum minutes ThreadNav will continue refreshing
  • Allow or disallow guests to see ThreadNav
  • Maximum number of posts to show
  • Minimum width of each post cell.
  • Excluded forums
Upgrading to version 2.0
  • Upload the new product xml file in Plugins & Products and overwrite the old file.
  • Be sure to revert all threadnav templates, including threadnav.css.
  • Some pages will require simple template edits. See the ThreadNav setting sin the Admin CP for more information.

Bugs Fixed:
  • Now compatible with vBSEO
  • All text in phrases
  • More tips on styling in threadnav.css
  • Resolved major incompatibilities with some styles
  • Miscellaneous aesthetic changes
  • Resolved misalignment of borders of cell and drop box in some styles
  • Improved closing of drop boxes when you mouse out
  • Fixed more incompatibility issues with some some styles
  • Fixed incompatibility issue with IE (GRRRRRRRRRR....)
  • Overhauled system for opening and closing drop boxes

Style is based on borders, font-color and background-colors of postbits. For styles with darker colors a note at the top of threadnav.css gives helpful styling tips. If you need to add space above or below ThreadNav see top of threadnav.css. Don't use line breaks.

Installation is simple: upload the XML file to Products and you're ready to go -- no external files or edits.

Version 2.0 was developed in vB4.2.2 but should work in any vB4 version.

I got it working in 4.2.1..

Just installed it as per instructions...
Created a new thread. Went back into the forums, clicked on an existing thread and there it was.

Text is a bit small for my needs and it wasn't so easy to edit the size of it...

I did notice that after a while, the thread nav disappears again. But if another thread is created, it pops back up..

Yikes, I haven't kept up with this thread.

I wrote this a long time ago so I don't remember exactly how it works now. I think if you go to settings and change it to show today's posts (which is the way I always have it set) then it will always appear on showthread. Otherwise it shows New Posts and if you've marked forums read or read everything it won't show on the page.

If this doesn't work at all check if there's another product that places something at the top of the page. If another product puts stuff in the same template hook and doesn't concatenate it in with ".=" it will wipe out anything else at that location.

Ok, thanks for that....

One more thing, how do I address the size of it? I mean the font sizes are a tad on the small side...

Cheers.........

There are font-sizes in various classes in the threadnav.css template.

Installed and almost quite right in a design aspect.

Not sure what is going on with this mod.....In my live site, it shows only the thread that was posted in, nothing else.

On localhost, it shows the post....

Uninstalled.

Thanks..

I'm working on this. I'm also tidying up the code so it will be a day or so. Keep an eye on this thread.

I've modified this so it can now be placed in any vBulletin page. I also cleaned up the coding and fixed it so the display cells fit inside the shell exactly and the cell size automatically adjusts when the scrollbar shows or the page is resized.

This took a lot longer than I thought. Sorry for the delay.
