This modification is no longer available or supported.

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


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 3.7.004 adds the following ;

A forum exclusion list - requested a number of times, an option is provided to exclude forums from the unread count & display.

A time limit on unread posts count - if a member has not visited for more than x days then a simple unread posts link will be displayed, not an actual count, this stops potential large sql queries if you have a busy forum. The option can be disabled.



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


History:

v3.7.001 : First Release for vb 3.7.
v3.7.002 : Added Notification Display Option for Reputation Comments.

Thank God!!!!


I (and my user base) have been waiting for this quite intently.

One question/request would be to have the Rep comment message show up in your "Your Notifications" section.

Could something as simple as the fact that it would make the section just one line smaller, and that that type of notification is roughly on the same level as a Private Message, or a Social Group notification be the clincher?



Then there is also the simple bribe of Dr. Pepper if the above fails.
