This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (59 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 1030
Released: 31 Jul 2006 Last Update: 30 Mar 2008 Downloads: 4651
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

This modification is no longer available or supported.

This displays who has read a thread, and the time they last looked at it.

Hovering over a name will show when the member last viewed the thread, and (optionally) what IP address they viewed it from (Note: as of v3.34 you can only view the ip addresses in the 'View-All' display).

There is now an option to allow a thread author to view who has read their thread when they are not in one of the allowed usergroups. The IP and number of days restrictions still apply.

A new time set/reset facility has been added. Members allowed to use this facility can click on the 'set' link and it will set a personal 'cutoff' time - only showing who has read the thread after that time. The time can be reset as many times as you want, and also completely cleared again. When using this facility there is also a link to allow you to view a seperate list of all readers of the thread.

A cron job has now been added that can (optionally) delete records from the whoread table that are over a certain age - this is provided for large forums where the number of table entries can start to reach a million or more after 12 months. The delete age is a setting in the ACP.

Warning: When using the set/reset option - there is only a limited capacity of entries per thread (several thousand) - therefore you should only allow this feature to be used by a limited number of people - typically Staff usergroups. Allowing all members to use it will probably slow down your forum and cause errors if more than about 3000 members set a date on one thread.


There are settings for the following (in vBulletin Options > Who Has Read a Thread) ;

1. Turn the system on/off.
2. Restrict the display to certain usergroups
3. Restrict the IP display to certain usergroups.
4. Restrict the display to a set number of days.

New in v3.28

5. Option to allow thread author to view who read information.
6. Option to turn on the who read cutoff date (reset) function
7. Restrict use of reset function to certain usergroups.
8. Option to set whoread data records to be cleaned out after xxx days.

New in v3.39

9. Clicking on a user will display a page of their thread viewing history, most recent first.


Note: When using option 4 or the set/reset facility, the data is still kept beyond this limit, so they can be changed at any time.

Download the zip, extract the XML file and import using the vb Product Manager.

Not unless you have a time machine.

Nope, this only records the last time they viewed it.

You will have to be more specific than "not working".

Wouldn't this cause the site to slow down?

I just found out (during translation) that when we are on page
Who Viewed This Thread (misc.php?do=viewwr&t=12345)

if I click on "Member" colum I will transfered to page
List of Threads Viewed by : Makc666 (misc.php?do=wrviews&u=123)

If I was not making a translation I think 90% I will never find it.

Why not to change this one:
<phrase name="member" date="1159000000" username="Paul M" version="3.25"><![CDATA[Member]]></phrase>
To something like:
<phrase name="member" date="1159000000" username="Paul M" version="3.25"><![CDATA[Member (click on user name to see more)]]></phrase>


A better variant to add search.gif to the right of usernames.
Will look like:
Makc666 search.gif

Or another better variant to add one more colum to the left of users' names.
Visual it will look better and more understandable

I am happy also with it for now as I know that there is such thing/function.
But it seems to me that 90% of Installs: 997 don't know about this one. Really.
Paul M, I think that you know/understand that all people are different and some things which are clear for one part are not clear for another. This fact is incontestable/unquestionable.

So. If you will have some time, can you please add this one (colum to the left) for the next version. And both parts of people will be happy.

Thanks!
