Who has read a Thread Version: 3.7.001

Released: 21-01-2008

vBulletin 3.7 Version
Please remember to click Mark as Installed if you use this modification.
Support questions from members who have not marked this as installed will be considered low priority.

This displays who has read a thread, and the time they last looked at it.

Hovering over a name will show when the member last viewed the thread, and (optionally) what IP address they viewed it from. Note that you can only view the ip addresses in the 'View-All' display.

There is also an option to allow a thread author to view who has read their thread when they are not in one of the allowed usergroups. The IP and number of days restrictions still apply.

The set/reset facility allows members to click on the 'set' link which then sets a personal 'cutoff' time - only showing who has read the thread after that time. The time can be reset as many times wanted, and also completely cleared again. When using this facility there is also a link to allow you to view a seperate list of all readers of the thread.

Warning: When using the set/reset option - there is only a limited capacity of entries per thread (several thousand) - therefore you should only allow this feature to be used by a limited number of people - typically Staff usergroups. Allowing all members to use it will probably slow down your forum and cause errors if more than about 3000 members set a date on one thread.

A cron job (optionally) allows the deletion of records from the whoread table that are over a certain age - this is provided for large forums where the number of table entries can start to reach a million or more after 12 months. The delete age is a setting in the ACP.

There are also settings for the following (in vBulletin Options > Who Has Read a Thread) ;

1. Turn the system on/off.
2. Restrict the display to certain usergroups
3. Restrict the IP display to certain usergroups.
4. Restrict the display to a set number of days.
5. Option to allow thread author to view who read information.
6. Option to turn on the who read cutoff date (reset) function
7. Restrict use of reset function to certain usergroups.
8. Option to set whoread data records to be cleaned out after xxx days.
9. Clicking on a user will display a page of their thread viewing history, most recent first.

Note: When using option 4 or the set/reset facility, the data is still kept beyond this limit, so they can be changed at any time.

Download the zip, extract the XML file and import using the vb Product Manager.


History:

v3.7.001 : First Release for vb 3.7.

If you don't see it, then you need to enable viewing of members in the thread in admincp.
vb options, thread display options, Show Users Browsing Threads, YES

it binds to the end of this so you have to enable it or change Auto-Template Search Text : Who Read This Thread
