About This File

With this modification you're able to view topics that've not been replied to on your forum. This is useful for large forums where you want your members to quickly discover such topics and encourage them to be the first to discuss or help out.


Main Author: Preben at Mediehuset Tek (Modern version)


Features [*]Sidebar hook that can be configured from the ACP [*]How many items to show in sidebar [*]Define amount of minutes or hours it should take to show up in sidebar (So it's not only new topics) [*]Set a global default for forums to ignore [*]Choose member groups that are able to decide forums to ignore themselves [*]A new page styled like a forum with additional filters that are not present in the sidebar hook
Installation
This hook requires one hook xml-file to be uploaded from the AdminCP. It also includes a file you're expected to upload. If you're unable to do so however, it's possible to skip it. Please read the included readme.txt for all the details.


Background: This is a popular feature we've had in a less advanced form on the large IPB-forums we're technically responsible for since 2004. We hope that by sharing some of what we develop it will help us gain new ideas and more insight into developing for the Invision Power Systems. If any other developers have any hints or tips on changes that should be done to the code etc., then please let us know! smile.png


(An earlier 3.2-version of this is used on Diskusjon.no, but we've not yet upgraded that forum to 3.3.)











What's New in Version 1.0.4   See changelog

Released

Improved and removed various code bits, overall less code. Thanks to Marcher Technologies and Martin A. for tips Removed code that caused unnecessary extra load time on the unreplied-page (approx. 0.3-2sec) Removed a query that was not necessary Preferences belonging to members in member groups that are not allowed to set their preferences, will no longer be loaded (It could be that certain members could change before, but then was restricted. Which would cause them to have a preference that could not be updated) If a forum is ignored and it has no child forums, then the unreplied-page will now show topics from that forum, even though it's ignored _if_ you choose that specific forum in the dropdown menu I know I fixed one more thing I intended to include in the change log, but can't remember what it was
