ThreadNav: scrolling New Posts navigation bar for Showthread
Mod Version: 2.1, by nerbert (Coder) nerbert is offline
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.

Hmm made some more test and seems that having vbseo 3.6.0 it will not work when you click on the thread you see on first picture with arrow and doing that will take you to the second picture see the arrow on the second picture so not sure why its not letting me go to the thread.

Installed and a cool mod but the preview first post / last post window doesn't really stay open. Also, any way to add a space so it doesn't appear right under banners?

Thanks! However, I'm having the same issues as Erica above with invalid links, I too use vBSEO.

Great idea though!

Parts of this were developed on vB4.1.4. I'm sure this will work on earlier versions. If you have already tried it on earlier vB4 versions and it doesn't work, give me a description of what's happening.

You can go to the "threadnav" template and add a <br> at the very top, or go to "threadnav.css" template and in .threadnav properties add

margin-top: 10px;

then you can adjust the spacing until it's just right.

Would any of you with vBSEO post a link to one of your threads? if I can see the structure of the link I may be able to figure this out and I can post a modified template or something..

I don't have vBSEO and don't want but I will try to get this working.

It will close as soon as your mouse exits it. That's the only way to close it, otherwise it would take a button or something

It closes even when my mouse is still on it.
