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As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

Where exactly was unread posts was supposed to be displayed ? I've checked usercp and could see no difference at all and I did have unread posts the moment I checked that.

vBulletin Options > General Settings > Thread/Forum Read Marking Type
Yes, this is set correctly.

Any tips ?

Hmm, if I disable the Display New Reputation Comments option it still shows up in the navbar. This option and the variable $unread did not work anymore on my vBa Portal with the 3.8 Version.

Hey Paul, I use this along with Get New/Get Daily Opt Out Modification and the numbers don't match. It's most obvious when this tells me I have one new post, and click on the link takes me to the new post page which says there are no new posts.

Not sure what the deal is - I will look into it - but wanted to let you know it does not appear to integrate properly with Get New/Get Daily Opt Out Modification as stands.

Hey Paul, great mod.

Would it be possible to code a version that only displays the number on unread posts in brackets beside the 'new post' link in the nav bar.

e.g. .....Community.......Calendar...........''New Posts (10)'' ............Search

Thanks

Um, but, your mod info says "Version 3.8.001 adds support for forums excluded if you have the "Get New/Get Daily Opt Out Modification" installed (by Andreas)." And that's the mod I'm talking about.
