What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update to my 3.7.x version of this hack.

This is an hack adds an extra option to the Search this Forum drop down list in forum display, that additionally allows you to search for unanswered threads by forum (including child forums if enabled). This can be useful for example, if you have some of your forums dedicated to support issues and want to filter by unanswered support threads, just in that forum (and child forums if enabled).

There have been a few threads that mentioned template edits for allowing to view all unanswered threads in all forums (not like this hack which is by forum, not the entire site), vb.org uses a variation of that template edit. This hack is different, but based on the idea, and allows more control over the results.

There are no file or template changes at all, and is phrased.

AdminCP settings for this hack available in vBulletin Options > Search For Unanswered Threads By Forum.
Settings that can be changed are:
  1. Search child forums - enable/disable
  2. Turn off cached results - enable/disable
  3. Auto Link Creation - this is enabled by default. But if you need to manually edit the FORUMDISPLAY template because the auto template injection does not work, you will need to turn off the auto template injection option, and in the FORUMDISPLAY template you will need to paste $sfutbf_template around where $vbphrase[advanced_search] (don't ask me where, because if you need to make the edit manually, then you have a custom template, and you are on your own with the edit).

vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 3.6.0 - 3.8.8.

For the v4.0.4 version of this hack - check here.

It does not appear in the navbar, which is why you don't see it. Read the What Does This Hack Do? section of the first post, that will tell you where the link is (also check out the screenshots).

My Forum-wide Search For Unanswered Threads hack will be ported to v3.8.x tomorrow, and that hack will give a link on the navbar search menu.

Hi Mosh,
This one is very useful, especially for Moderators. I would like to have one suggestion for you: It will be more compact and code-saving to combine this mod and your "Forum-wide Search For Unanswered Threads"
Thanks for your work.

biocyberman.

It is going to be one of three things:
  • You did not upload the bitfield file to the correct location
  • You have not set the usergroup permissions
  • You need to manually edit the FORUMDISPLAY template because the auto template injection does not work, you will need to turn off the auto template injection option, and in the FORUMDISPLAY template you will need to paste $sfutbf_template around where $vbphrase[advanced_search] (don't ask me where, because if you need to make the edit manually, then you have a custom template, and you are on your own with the edit).

Not working for me either

I'm certain the bitfield xml is in the right place and I have enabled all the usergroups.

I'm running vb 3.6.8

The only option here is that I am going to have to take a quick look at your installation.

If you want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, a temp admin user (with admin permissions - Can Administer Settings for editing options, Can Administer Styles for editing templates, Can Administer Language Settings for editing phrases, Can Administer User Permissions to edit usergroups and finally Can Administer Plugins for editing products and plugins), and ftp access details, without these I can not help you. I will look when I have time, and even if I have a look, I can not guarantee that I will be able to fix it, so it is up to you what you want to do. You can revoke these after I have helped you out.

Let me know what you decide.

The offer to look at your installation has been on the table for over 7 days, and because the offer was not taken, it has now withdrawn because I do not have unlimited free time to help. There is nothing else I can do or suggest to help in this case, sorry.
