Cybernetic,

Can you help address this issue we're having?

I'm now using 2.4, templates unmodified, and it's still doing the same thing shown in my attachments in my previous post.

Thanks.

I guess I'll go back to 2.1 since it worked on both the homepage and on the forums index.

I'm using this mod now: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=168303

Basically does the same thing, but not as nicely and no AJAX, but... it's something. At least until/if this mod ever works for me. Would be nice to not be told it's my templates, I didn't install it right and otherwise to just be ignored, but... I guess I can't have everything.

Any version beyond 2.2 does not work at all for me. Furthermore, I'm experiencing the same homepage (vBadvanced) problems as everybody else. My vBa menu simply says "New Posts: Checking..." and does not update. Within the forum, however, everything is fine.

I would appreciate a fix for this in the future if possible. This is truly a great modification and it would be even better if it worked on our homepage (or, if it automatically disabled itself and reverted to default templates when browsing the homepage). If version 2.1 works on the homepage but without AJAX, I'd settle for that, but I can't find where to download that version.

to my installation in order to incorporate the links into those styles which display the new posts link in the header template, and not the navbar. While it's working for me in 2.2 (save the homepage), 2.1 seems to introduce an extra <tr> tag which messes everything up. Guess I'll just wait for the AJAX homepage fix.

Did you do new install? Upgrade from previous version? Did you make ANY changes to the cyb_advancednewposts template? Did you change any other templates? Can you post the code to the various templates used in this mod for comparison to ours?

I installed 2.4 onto vb 3.8.0 and it won't work on my vbadvanced page (even with editing the template manually) nor does it count the new posts inside the forums correctly.
Will give it another chance if/when it's updated.
