  • Show Threads with Unread Posts

    How can I show my users all threads containing unread posts? Not posts in last 30 days, but unread for that user. If the user isn't logged in, then I'd expect everything is unread.

    I've posted about this before and it seems impossible, but at the same time I feel like must be missing something, because this is such a basic feature.

    Unread markers are only maintained for period of time. In a default installation, this is 10 days. Anything older than that is marked as read automatically.

    Building searches via Query or JSON would depend on your version. For support with that, you need to post in the support forum for your version.

      Sorry, I am referring to 5.0.5. Is it supported? Feel free to move my post; sorry about that.

        http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/search?searchJSON={"unread_only":1,"view":"topic","exclude_type":["vBForum_PrivateMessage"]}

        That would be the string to do this.

          I tried this just now and it is driving me batty that I cannot figure out how to see all my unread posts. It gives me results that also include those I've read.

        I always get the response "There are no results that meet this criteria." even though I know there are posts from today I haven't read yet.

        Also the URL reads:

        http://www.mysite.com/forum/search?searchJSON={

        ...and that's it. Maybe it's not liking the quotes? Should I open a ticket, or do you have other troubleshooting suggestions?

          Fixed it - it was a quotes issue. I just plugged in the URL here to get the proper form and it works:

          http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/

          Is that a defect?

            ....although, I'm getting results which include some threads that have already been read... :-/ And those read threads are not bolded, and the "jump to unread post" icon isn't present... which makes sense, because I've read those. So I'm not sure how this works. Tried clearing cache, no success. Is there a searchJSON cheat sheet anywhere? I haven't deviated from the string you provided, but, it's not working as expected.
