This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (31 votes - 4.74 average) Installs: 542
Released: 28 Nov 2008 Last Update: 09 Mar 2017 Downloads: 3001
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

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.


History:

v3.8.001 : Initial vb 3.8 Release.
v3.8.002 : Fix forum exclusion bugs.
v3.8.003 : Fix spelling and phrase bug.
v3.8.004 : Added support for Psionic Visions Selective Forum Filter.

yes, the unread posts count is one of the most important features missing in vB4

Any way to have an on/off option in the UserCP? Some of my members like this and some don't. Thank you

If you set this up yourself with user profile fields and template conditionals then yes, you could do it. Its not something I will ever add tho.

Nope, it will show whether you have unread posts or not.

Is the mod tied to both unread posts and reputation comments?

Or can it be separated to only have reputation comments notification?

That means you have an old translation of one of mod phrases - you need to locate and delete (or update) it [it could be one of several, all start with dup_ ].

I have moved my forum to a NEW domain. Now when I click on the Unread posts link it takes me to the old domain. What do I need to change to correct this issue?

Nevermind, found it!

I have a little problem:
I've moved my forum to a different server in a different time zone. Since then the "unread posts" has been displaying wrong (too low) numbers. Do I need to reset something?
