Please remember to click on Mark as Installed if you use this modification.

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.

Either.

There is the option to count the unread posts since your last visit, or all posts considered unread.

Thanks for the update Paul... quick question though. I suspect the "Unread Posts" link uses a relative link, and not a fully qualified link. And on my vbAdvanced page it links to http://scienceofmuscle.com/search.php?do=getnew and not http://scienceofmuscle.com/forum/search.php?do=getnew

Is there a place I can change this?

Quick question for ya Paul
I have this set to display on every page (in the navbar area)
Is this a bad idea? I was wondering what impact this would have on server performance if it's displayed one every page. (I assume it runs a query for EVERY page visited?)

Are you sure you have posted in the correct thread ? - this mod runs on every page by default, there is no option to prevent it (as it wouldnt make sense).

The database thread marking system is a setting in vbulletin options.

Unless you have modified your navbar template, you dont need to worry about the rest.
