  • 'View New Posts' Problem:

    Hello ALL!
    Just recently, i tried to edit the search.php file so that it would not include some of the forums on the 'view new posts' link. When I did the hack (located here: ), it worked. However, if someone posted in one of the forums i wanted to exclude, the number of new posts still increased. This was misleading my users so i removed the hacked search.php file and replaced it with the original backup file.

    However, ever since I did that...the 'view new posts' numbers are going through the roof. If i click the link, and then click the new post/thread, it doesnt take it off the list like it used too. The only way I can remove posts from the 'view new posts' link is by clicking the link at the bottom of that page to 'mark all threads as read'.

    Can someone help me? THis is very frustrating and my users are not happy Thanks and take care!

    You'll need to ask for help in the appropriate hack thread over at Since this worked fine before installing the hack, it probably made changes to your templates and/or database.
