"New Posts" in navbar menu will be replaced with "New Posts: x (In y Threads)" which is updated via AJAX - no page refresh.

Optionally you can enable and configure Smart Search Menu to give users ability to search only selected forum sections. See screenshots...

Works okay, on the forum home page, however I've installed a CMPS portal page and unfortunately when the new posts link is displayed there it just says 'No New Posts' which is wrong and when clicked on it brings up and error.

Does anybody else use this with a vbAdvanced portal page?

I got it working for my custom theme, as far as I can tell it's working fine.

here is what I did...

Go to your Admin CP > Styles & Templates > Cybernetec Templates > cyb_advancednewposts.

Copy everything in the cyb_advancednewposts template and paste it in your nav menu.

Hope that helps!

Great job !
I was looking for this for ages ...
Installed and give highest mark.
For the moment number of new posts is not decreasing while you read posts. It only shows the first number. I have replaced all phrases with New since I do not have place on my navbar for long text . Will find later a solution.

Just notice if you have scripts disabled for the site you see only the first time New message in : link
It works like normal link new posts.
After this link is dissapear and it will show only the first one (New posts)

It happen users dont know how to enable scripts.
(tested only on Firefox)

I dont think is usefull to have 2 links for more or les the same thing (maybe is better to move the numbers in the drop down menu) Keep in mind also the no script issue...

Will love also usergrup permision on it

In rest life saver since it was asked on my forum for ages ...
Many thanks and great job!

This hack is just SUPER!!!

I have used it since 3.5.x and I still use it!

Well, but there is this new idea that I had and that I need to apply to my forum:

I need to have this Mod working, but with the exception of two sub-forums, for example, 'sales' and 'new members'.

How could the exception be applied to this Mod? I mean, I want the Mod to keep working on my New Posts Button, but I don't want it to show the New Messages posts on sections "X" and "Y".

Does anyone knows how to do it?
