    Question Recent Threads not showing as read

    All of the "Recent Thread" posts show as "not read", even though users read them. This is the only compaint I've received about the update. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks again, Brian for all you hard work. It is really appreciated from all of us.

    Yeah, it's being discussed in the other thread. I think Brian is looking into it. Or I hope so.

    Also after awhile some threads got marked as read, randomly.. even if they had unread posts in them. So yeah.. strange.

    I've done a good bit of testing with this and was able to reproduce some problems, mostly with specific forums that have been marked as read. For anyone that's experiencing this problem, please download the package from here again, upload the forum/modules/recentthreads.php file over your existing one, and see if that solves the problem. If not, please submit a support ticket via the Members' Area here and I will take a look at things for you.

    Unfortunately that doesn't seem to have done it for me... still bolding topics in my recent thread no matter how many times you click on it... only replying seems to do the trick

    Default Recent Threads are bold forever for unlogged in users

    Brian, thank you for disabling creating new threads for me, I really appreciated that!

    Here's the bug with read mark-up (after uploading the new file recentthreads.php):

    If the option is "Inactivity/Cookie Based" the only way for any user to mark a thread as read is to view the list of threads of a forum. Just reading a thread changes nothing.

    If the option is one of the database the above "feature" is still a problem for unregistered users (which are main revenue generators at the forum). See for yourself: http://www.pifhelp.ru/forum/. Try to mark a thread as read.

    Or should I submit a support ticket?

    Nevermind. Fixed it.

    PHP Code:
    <if condition="$show['member']">

    <if 
    condition="$show['gotonewpost']"><strong>$thread[title]</strong><else />$thread[title]</if>

    <else />
    $thread[title]</if>

    Sure It's changing behavior of the template responsible for showing the threads in Recent threads. The template is adv_portal_recthreads_exp. It checks a condition to see if the thread title should be shown in bold. The fix adds another condition - if the viewer is not logged in, the threads are always regular (not bold).

    The original piece in the template adv_portal_recthreads_exp:
    PHP Code:
    <if condition="$show['gotonewpost']"><strong>$thread[title]</strong><else />$thread[title]</if> 
    Fixed:
    PHP Code:
    <if condition="$show['member']">

    <if 
    condition="$show['gotonewpost']"><strong>$thread[title]</strong><else />$thread[title]</if>

    <else />
    $thread[title]</if> 
    It's a fix for database options. For "Inactivity/Cookie Based" it can't be fixed like that - you can only disable marking threads in bold at all, which doesn't make sense, I guess:

    Fixed 2:

    PHP Code:
    $thread[title

    I'm assuming you're talking about the bugs forum here? Before getting a sarcastic tone, perhaps you should take a couple of seconds to read the forum description.

    Can I still access this download for 2.0.0? I would like to get the recentthreads file if someone could direct me to it. Thanks!

    Sorry, but such old versions that only work with vB 3.5 are no longer available.
