Mark Thread Unread On Edit

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (4 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 20

Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Overview:

This simple product will mark a thread as unread when a post is edited, and the content of the post actually changes.

The site I help administrate is a math help forum, and sometimes users will post an incomplete question for which no help can effectively be given, and then they will later edit their post to provide relevant information, and it is nice for that thread to then be returned to unread status.

In the settings for this product, you choose which users (by usergroup and/or username) who will see the thread with the edited post as unread and which usergroup(s) making such edits will cause the thread to be marked as unread.

Note: Upon installation of version 2.0 or higher, the setting "Thread/Forum Read Marking Type" is auto-set to "Database (automatic forum marking)" in order to make certain this setting is fully compatible with this product.

Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Allows you to choose users for whom threads will be marked as unread by usergroup, userid, or both.

Version 2.0:
  • A complete overhaul, easier to use and more efficient code logic.

Version 2.1:
  • Fixed issue where other threads not actually read, yet marked as read using the "Mark Forums As Read" links, will stay marked as read when a post is edited.
  • Product is now triggered by the usergroup membership of the post author, not on who actually edits the post.

Version 2.2:
  • Fixed issue where edited posts were marked as unread for the person making the edit.

Version 2.2.1:
  • Disabled on CMS and Blog scripts to avoid potential db errors.

Version 2.2.2:
  • Fixed plugin typo.

Backup/Warning:

This product does not alter your database, however it is always good practice to make regular backups and you should make a backup before installing ANY new mod.

As always, products are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will provide support and do my best to help but no absolute guarantee is offered.

To Install:
  1. Download and extract the attached .zip file.
  2. Follow AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product.
  3. Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product .xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.
  4. Click "Import."
  5. You MUST enable the product in the settings before it will function.
  6. Configure the remaining settings to your liking. Each setting has a detailed explanation of its use.

No, when I edit a post of the thread, (this particular thread has 12,000 posts, I get that I have 197 unread post, for me as admin and for all other members that before had none unread. Probably some conflict with mine other modifications or else.


Thank you very much any way...

If you are changing the date to an older one, then it is likely interfering with the database marking.

edit: Also, if you are making the edit yourself, the thread is not going to be marked as unread for you.

Yes, I use two comptes for tests
I made some test and finally, it's not a conflit with the hack that change the date of post but :
for exemple, if "Database Read Marking Limit" is 30 days, only edited posts that are published between today and 30 days ago are marked as unread
a post maked 31 day ago and edited, is not marked as unread

I have a post made in 2015 (events of an artist) that I update with new element and I want to mark it unread after edit
so I can't do that with your hack and i can't bump it with this hack because :
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...3&postcount=82

Thanks Mark

Yes, that's because there is nothing in the db (forumread and threadread tables) for a thread older than your marking limit, so the product cannot have any effect on it.

The only solution : I change the date of the post to today for exemple, and edit it, it will mark as unread

It's not logique because a lot of members had liked the post in the past (the post with the new date of today) but I can not do otherwise

I want to keep the likes, that's why.

Marking a thread as unread (given that database marking is being used) depends on a thread being within the limit. Otherwise, you need to bump the thread with a new post.

A tad confused

In the settings for this product, you choose which users (by usergroup and/or username) who will see the thread with the edited post as unread and which usergroup(s) making such edits will cause the thread to be marked as unread.
I'm a tad confused by this. By default, other than Administrators, aren't OPs (Original Posters) the only ones who can edit their (OP) posts? Why would you want to exclude any usergroup from seeing an edited post/thread as unread? I know that I overthink things at times; okay, a lot; but as stated, this has me confused.

Moderators can also edit posts, as well as any usergroups you have given this permission.

Some of your staff members may not want to be "bothered" by having threads marked as unread when a post has simply been edited, so you have the option to control who (by usergroup and by username) for whom this happens.
