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As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

is it possible to put the number of unread posts per forum in the forumhomedisplay area kind of like how UBB Threads works?

basically put each line or each forum would have a the total number of threads then the new unread threads would be in ( number_of_unread_threads ) and then the posts line like in ( number_of_unread_posts) next to the number of posts total

can you do that with your mod?

like getnew x and some code for the forum or whatever?

Wonderful modification, thank you Paul.


I do have one question though - Setting the cut off date to less then 10 days makes the number of unread post disappear. All it says is "Display Unread Posts". Am I missing something?

At a guess, you are using the "Count All Posts Marked as Unread" option, and your "Database Read Marking Limit" is 10 days - the "cutoff" must always be higher than the DRML in the Display All mode.

Thank you, that fixed it. Now it says 8359 Unread Posts instead of 16,600+

Paul,

I'm not sure if my question is in the right place, but I have this mod of yours as well as the Extended Rep Checks. I specifically like this mod for the UnRead Posts. My question is about the Reputation part now.

I have set it such that giving + rep. requires a comment. Is it possible to NOT display WHOM it came from? Of course admins could see from ACP, but I'm referring to the UserCP.

Thanks in advance.

Displaying who gave a comment is a usergroup setting (standard vb).

Paul, is it possible to alter MOD for new picture comments (not only for my pictures, but for all users pictures)?

Sorry, I have no plans to make any further changes to any of my mods for the 3.x series of vbulletin (except bug fixes).

Just an observation, shouldn't the query on usercp_start have some kind of condition to check whether or not the reputation system is enabled.? Somewhat of an unnecessary additional query if not..

Yes, That sounds sensible.

Im not going to release an update just for that, as its very minor, but Ive updated my master copy so it will be included in the next release (which will prob be vb4).

Hi Paul, thx alot for the mod, been using it for a while

I've came across a problem lately, since I installed VBAdvanced adding a front page. The links on front page won't work, they link to a wrong address.

Main Page: www.gamingcraft.net
Forums: www.gamingcraft.net/forum

Clicking New Posts on Main Page, trys to redirect to http://www.gamingcraft.net/search.php?do=getnew (Without the /forum included).

Is there a way I can edit it to forcefully include /forum?
(Same for new reputation).
