This modification is no longer available or supported.

Note: The unread posts portion of this hack only works if you use the database thread marking system.

This will display the actual number of posts that are still considered unread by you (and will show up in a 'getnew' search).

Versions 1.22+ also display 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.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Display Unread Posts and Reputation.

To install this hack unzip the xml file and import it using the ACP Product Manager.

can I make the search text for both the navbar as it is and add for the header so that it works in the regular styles that use the navbar?

There is no real issue with having it as per your first example (where you just added the new code below the existing code) - it means it will still work as intended as well as the extra code for yourself.

I have a little proble, when a member registers it tells them that they have something like 24,0000 posts unread, but I relly think it should say you have 0 unread posts as they are new.

Is there a way of sorting this problem out?

I have had this mod installed for a while

I guess that's how vb thread marking works.

Read the last two pages.



(JFYI, This will be updated soon to add the Auto Template settings as vbulletin options).

v1.21 Released.

This adds the auto-template changes options to the (new) vbulletin options page - to bring it in line with most of my other mods. The option to turn the mod off has also been added. There are no other changes so upgrading is not necessary unless you need access to these options.

That's the way vBulletin does it. Just have your members mark the forums read using your own site's domain such as the following:

I installed v1.20 of this mod last night on a new forum that was just setup. I previously had this installed at a different location but with this one it doesn't appear to be working properly. I do get the 4 Unread Posts since your last visit message in the appropriate place but after being idle on my site for awhile and then refreshing, it went back to No Unread Posts since your last visit. When I clicked on the link for Unread Posts or went to New Posts, my forum still showed that there were the initial 4 unread posts. Is this something new or is something possibly not working correctly? The forum in question is in my signature.

It's working fine - your forum session timed out (so your last visit time changed).

Hmm, it doesn't seem to be doing that now however that was not how it worked on my old forum. The point of Unread Posts (of course depending on the 'Thread/Forum Read Marking Type' option) is that the messages aren't read until you view them. I have had at times 50-100+ unread posts and only read a few of them only to return the next day to take care of the rest. All the while, this modification never reset back to 'No Unread Posts'.

Just to make sure however, the Thread/Forum Read Marking Type option should be set to Database (automatic forum marking), correct?

That is how this hack has always worked on my forum. Because your session timed out, they are no longer "unread since your last visit" which is what the hack counts. If you click the link, it will still list those posts. If there is a combination of the two, it will separate them, but all will still be there to view.

Changing the user timeout will adjust the timeframe in which it adjusts...
