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.

Okay, I loaded it, it shows up in my Products, but I have nothing about unread posts in the welcome box... What have I done wrong?

I didn't have an old version. This is the first version I ever loaded...

I even see the two options in my CP as it stated I would. Just nothing in the welcome box.

I uninstalled it now. I have it to try again later, but if it isn't working there is no real reason to keep it loaded...

Okay, I figured out why it wasn't working, have reloaded it and it is working...

In ACP -> vBulletin options -> General Settings -> Thread/Forum Read Marking type... You need to select one of the Database options or it won't work....

Can this be modified to show in the header between calendar and seach, like this:

Calendar - New Posts (45) - Search

45 is just an example, this would be post count.

Thanks

It works fine for me but I would prefer to place it below the "You last visited" string. How can it be done?

The following dependencies were not met:
1. This product is not compatible with version 3.6.0 Release Candidate 3 of vBulletin. (Compatible starting with 3.6.0)

Yes, upgrade to the full version of 3.6, you should not be running an RC version.
