    The forums here do not have a "Mark Channel Read" link in the sub-navigation bar within the header of the site.

    The link was removed because it didn't work. It did not have access to the proper variables for the JavaScript to know what channel to mark read. When it did work, it would break because people edited the text of the link. Instead, we have added a "Mark Channels Read" link towards the footer of the page (just like older versions of vBulletin) that is in a position where it does have access to the correct variables and is phrased based so it doesn't break on editing.

    This change has been in place for quite a few years now and I don't foresee it changing back in the immediate future. As such, I am going to close this topic.

    If you feel an additional link is necessary then you can create a feature request for it. If we can add it without forcing a page load, then we will consider it.

    Code does work. I'm using it on www.talknewsuk.com. The Mark Channels Read link in the sub-navbar works on every page.
    Old thread, but this is what I found. I added the code in the navigation bar, and it works for my site. Thanks.

    Not for Cloud though I'm afraid.
    A workaround for vBCloud is ro add the JS code to the Google Analytics setting in AdminCP.

    There is a Mark Channels Read link at the bottom of the main forum listing page. You can see it on vBulletin.com/forum. This is the exact same place it existed in vBulletin 2, 3, and 4. If you hid this, you would have to come up with a new solution.

    Not sure why it was added back to the Navigation Bar here. It doesn't work in the Navigation Bar and that is why it was removed in the first place.

    Its absence was driving me crazy.

    I dont have time to look at new code atm, so I've just added the "Mark Channels Read" option, which replicates what the link at the bottom of the page does.

    "Mark All Posts Read" sounds more clear and appropriate. And it applies not just to forums.

    On sites I've done it for, I've renamed it 'Mark Forums Read'. I know it technically does more than just forums, but the average user has no idea what a 'Channel' is.

    That is, in fact, how I expected it to work as well.

    In vb3/4, if you want to just mark the single forum as read, there was another link elsewhere to do that, the one in the nav always does them all.

    I see. It should be renamed "Mark All Posts Read" or something similar then to avoid confusion.
