This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (59 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 1029

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.

Funnily enough I was looking at a way to do that, and have included it in the "View-All" display, which is now available at all times, not just when you have a cutoff set (ip display is now in that view only).

I few other internal changes have been made, I'm currently testing v3.35 for release later.

Yep, I read in your mind

But, there may be a slight bug because a new thread with one post has been read by three users in the same afternoon, but two of them are in View all, "Who Viewed This Thread", and the third is in "Last Post".
In fact, they all read this only post quite in the same time.

Is there something I did not understand ?

By the way, thank you for the improvement

There are no bugs that I know of, and I did test it in a number of situations - I don't really understand what you just posted to answer you.

You will find that when I'm on holiday from work (like over xmas) I release a few updates as I have the time to update and change bits that have been waiting. Most are just internal changes to tidy things up and don't require you to update unless you want to. If I think the change warrents it then i will either post in the thread or send an update message. You can always see the reason for an update in the history section of the main post.

Version 3.37 uploaded tonight fixes a date display problem introduced in one of the previous xmas updates (v3.34).
