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 that you can only view the ip addresses in the 'View-All' display.

There is also 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.

The set/reset facility allows members to click on the 'set' link which then sets a personal 'cutoff' time - only showing who has read the thread after that time. The time can be reset as many times wanted, 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.

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.

Note: You must have the "Show Users Browsing Threads" option set in your vbulletin options for this to display.

A cron job (optionally) allows the deletion of 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.

There are also 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.
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.
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.

Version 3.7.006 has experimental support for TMS. If you have TMS installed then the existing automatic template update system will be disabled in favour of TMS. One effect of this is that when using TMS the requirement for "Show Users Browsing Threads" to be enabled is bypassed . This version will continue to work as before for those who do not use TMS.


History:

v3.7.001 : First Release for vb 3.7.
v3.7.002 : Added check for 'view others threads' permission.
v3.7.003 : Fix for cron_script hook changed in 3.7 Beta 4.
v3.7.004 : Bug fix for days limit when reset option is enabled.
v3.7.005 : Updated to remove potential $group variable name clash.
v3.7.006 : TMS Support added, this is currently experimental.
v3.7.007 : Threads read via the archive are now recorded. Minor permissions update as well.

Where is this information displayed?

I've installed it and set my usergroup as the only one that can see them, and I can't see anything on any thread (they have been replied to and viewed by members since I installed this hack, so it's not due to inactivity).

@Zagis - If the table exists it shouldn't try and create it again - but I forgot to take prefixes into account. I've updated it slightly.
