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As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.
v3.8.005 : Updated version for vBulletin 3.8.11 (only).

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

What could be the problem with the language? What phrase is missing or corrupt?

Well I don't know what the name of the phrase that is corrupted is. I uninstalled and re-installed, but it didn't work.

What phrase should I look into?

Note that this issue only occurs when I use the "Count All Posts Marked as Unread" option. The others work fine.

Sorry, but unless you want to give me admin access to your forum there is nothing I can really tell you.

Perfect! This one solves the problem.
The "{x}" behind the "getnew" is probably not longer needed.
I just deleted it and now it works perfekt.

Well, I upgraded from a previous version and it's not showing anything in the welcome box. Then I downgraded again in my old version but still nothing's showing.

Any ideas?

I keep getting a database error when I try and install it. It says checking for index/installing index and then it just never installs and eventually gives me a database error page.

Okay, now I uninstalled this and reinstalled it in order to fix this mod, and get rid of the "ARG" crap, and now it's showing a completely blank line.

You have a custom version of one (or more) of the phrases. You must delete/revert them.

Hi, I love this mod and so do the members. Unfortunately it's not working since i upgraded to 3.8.2. I suppose its because of the database thread marking system? Would you explain how i can fix that? I 'm still somewhat of a nOob and don't know where to go to fix the database thread marking system. Thanks for any help.

Upgrading would not change the DB marking system.
