This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (31 votes - 4.74 average) Installs: 542
Released: 28 Nov 2008 Last Update: 09 Mar 2017 Downloads: 3001
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

Note: The unread posts portion of this hack only works if you use the database thread marking system, also, this attaches itself to certain phrases in the "welcome" box and will not work if they are not present (or are modified by other code).

FYI, the Forum Marking Choices are located in vBulletin Options ;
vBulletin Options > General Settings > Thread/Forum Read Marking Type

The Read Marking options were removed from vB 3.8.11, it defaults to database marking.


** For vBulletin 3.8.11 you will need to use the Unread-posts-3811.zip **

This displays the actual number of posts that are still considered unread by you (and will show up in a 'getnew' search). It also displays the number of new reputation comments since you last checked your usercp.

There is the option to count the unread posts since your last visit, or all posts considered unread. This setting reflects the divider in the 'getnew' search display. There is also the option to disable the unread posts display or the new reputation comments display.

There is also the option to display the New Reputation Comments counter as a Welcome Box Notification.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Display Unread Posts and Reputation.

Version 3.8.001 adds support for forums excluded if you have the "Get New/Get Daily Opt Out Modification" installed (by Andreas).
Version 3.8.004 adds support for forums excluded if you have the "Selective Forum Filter Modification" installed (by Psionic Vision).

To install this hack unzip the xml file and import it using the ACP Product Manager.


History:

v3.8.001 : Initial vb 3.8 Release.
v3.8.002 : Fix forum exclusion bugs.
v3.8.003 : Fix spelling and phrase bug.
v3.8.004 : Added support for Psionic Visions Selective Forum Filter.

Uninstall it, then re-install it - that should recreate the missing column.

I have the options set to "Count All Posts Marked as Unread"
I have the issue with the link taking me to this: mysite.com/forums/search.php?do=getnew[ARG:2%20UNDEFINED].

I read about something with the dup_posts phrase, but I don't see anything wrong with it... this is what it is:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

What else could be the problem?

Okay, I guess using this mod just isn't a viable option for me then.

Thanks

The message does look similar though... the "UNDEFINED" is triggering something for me. Let me do some searching.

Ahha - I knew I'd seen it somewhere before: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=4241 - something about languages.

ARG4 undefined means : you haven't imported the last english language file !

Well what does ARG20 mean then? I can't seem to find it...

%20 is an html encoded space. So, ignore it. What you are seeing is [ARG:2 UNDEFINED], which means it can't find the phrase it is trying to use for argument 2. My guess is, there is a problem with your language(s).

Argument 2 of that phrase is another phrase that is part of this product - the only possible way you could get it is if vbulletin didnt import the phrases properly, or you have somehow deleted the phrase - uninstalling and re-installing might fix that, otherwise, still no idea.

I'm also getting [ARG:4 UNDEFINED] here, using another language as default...

And here's why...

The "old" phrase used to be

You Have <strong>{1} <a href="{3}search.php?do=getnew{4}">Unread {2}</a></strong>

And the new phrase lacks the {4}.
