Great mod

My suggestion and hopefully what everyone would love to see is this block right after the first post.

My 2 cents

Thanks for your feedback! I can make an admincp option with
  • option to set maximum numbers of threads
  • option to place the product on either ad_template[firstpost_start] or template_hook[showthread_after_active_users]
What do you think about showing the forumtitle? Do you think its useful?

If you like to be informed about updates, you can click INSTALL.

DDdddeeeemmmmooooo pretty please?

Screenshots ok but I want more lol

Also please do some style updates, I see you requested feedback so great.. I know you can make this look better so get to it rofl (j/k) it has potential but if it's just in showthread and you add tooo much styling it will just make showthread longer and longer and longer when with this is should be ease of use IMO.

Settings
  • The current version supports manual and automatic placements.
  • More placements (after first post) are coming in upcoming versions.
  • Set maximum of threads that are displayed
  • Technology behind the scene: Templates are cached.

screenshot1.GIF
Unregistered users view
Unregistered users see only a link to the first topic. This view is also displayed to registered users if there are no unread threads. The design has changed and is ready to the upcoming multi-tab-view. Technology behind the scene: These threads are fetched from RSS.

screenshot2.GIF
Registered users view
A link to the last unread post is provided. The subforum icon is activated.

Your suggestions
I am curious what you think of this product and am looking forward for your comments. I am thinking of implementing a 0-query solution, were you can opt-in on admincp for only showing threads fetched from the RSS-Feed. That improves speed.

It's meant to guide users after they read a thread to another topic from your forum, instead of leaving your page. The placement after all posts is therefore one of the best places this product has on SHOWTHREAD.

Technology mode
  1. database mode to fetch all unread threads for registered users in real time which gives the registered users more comfort or
  2. rss mode to fetch all theads from rss feed for every users which uses no database at all and is therefore faster

forumhome1.GIF
FORUMHOME (currently only for registered users)
On Forumhome there is a new view of Tabulators below the forums:
  1. Moderated Forums
  2. Subscribed Forums
  3. Participated Forums - where user wrote posts
  4. Read Forums - where user read posts
The tabs are interactive - click on one and the content is instantly presented. Only tabs with content are presented. For example, if a use does not moderate any forums, no moderator tab is displayed. If you moderate forums or have forums subscribed, these forums are always displayed - regardeless if there are new threads or not. The forum icon matches its actual read status.

Timeframe
The timeframe in which I check for participation and reading forums is the amount of days you choose in admincp Database Read Marking Limit.

Subscribed Forums
All subscribed forums are presented. If there are unread posts, they are displayed, too.
