I just installed your mod (1.0.4) on a new phpBB3.0.4 board and I thought everything worked great, until my users pointed out to me that the "mark all forums read" link isn't working :o I'm assuming I must have done something wrong, but I can't figure out what it is :?
This is the first part of my search_results.html

Code: Select all

<form method="post" action="{S_SEARCH_ACTION}">

<table width="100%" cellspacing="1">
<tr>
	<td colspan="2"><span class="titles"><!-- IF SEARCH_TITLE -->{SEARCH_TITLE}<!-- ELSE -->{SEARCH_MATCHES}<!-- ENDIF --></span><br /><!-- IF S_SHOW_MARK_FORUMS_LINK --><p class="gensmall"><a href="{U_MARK_FORUMS}">{L_MARK_FORUMS_READ}</a></p><br /><!-- ENDIF --></td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td class="genmed"><!-- IF SEARCH_TOPIC -->{L_SEARCHED_TOPIC}: <a href="{U_SEARCH_TOPIC}"><b>{SEARCH_TOPIC}</b></a><br /><!-- ENDIF --><!-- IF SEARCH_WORDS -->{L_SEARCHED_FOR}: <a href="{U_SEARCH_WORDS}"><b>{SEARCH_WORDS}</b></a><!-- ENDIF --><!-- IF IGNORED_WORDS --> {L_IGNORED_TERMS}: <b>{IGNORED_WORDS}</b><!-- ENDIF --></td>
	<td align="{S_CONTENT_FLOW_END}"><!-- IF SEARCH_IN_RESULTS --><span class="genmed">{L_SEARCH_IN_RESULTS}: </span><input type="text" name="add_keywords" value="" /> <input class="btnlite" type="submit" name="submit" value="{L_GO}" /><!-- ENDIF --></td>
</tr>
</table>
Did I miss something, or should I look somewhere else?

EDIT: actually it doesn't appear to be an html-problem because it isn't working in prosilver either...

You need to make a change that is required to dovetail changes made in phpbb3 since this mod was released. See http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 5#p7824265

There are a number of other changes we've made along the way (all described somewhere in this topic). If you want to use the current version there's a link in this post: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 5#p8021335
That new version is not yet validated, but I submitted it for validation a few weeks ago so hopefully it will get validated fairly soon.

Ah, right :idea: Thank you!

Now I have one more question: is there a way to make this show up in viewonline.php as "reading unread topics" instead of "searching the forums"?

Online pages are tracked by user sessions. I've never looked into the code to figure out if there is a hack along the lines you ask about, so I don't know how easy that would be. I suppose a quick fix would be to change the definition of searching forums in language/en/common.php to read something like this:

Code: Select all

	'SEARCHING_FORUMS'			=> 'Reading unread topics or searching forums',

Actually the reason I ask is because I'd like to know which one of those the user is actually doing at that moment :mrgreen:
But either way I'd like to thank you for a great mod, you've made my users very happy :D

:?: Both links still work fine for me. And the fix worked like a charm.

It works on my 3.0.2 forum (still have a backup working on 3.0.2)

When I go to 'View unread messages' there is a link you can click on 'Mark all forums as read' but if I click on that the unread messages don't disappear.

I think there is a changes in the code since 3.0.3 for mark the forums as read.
I see there is a difference in the standard link on the forum index for marking forums as unread:
in 3.0.2 -> /forum/index.php?mark=forums
in 3.0.3 -> /forum/index.php?hash=af835669&mark=forums

asinshesq, can you take a look and update that for 3.0.3?

EDIT:
I think this have to be changed in /includes/functions_view_or_mark_unread_posts.php

FIND:

Code: Select all

'U_MARK_FORUMS'				=> append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}index.$phpEx", 'mark=forums'),
REPLACE WITH:

Code: Select all

'U_MARK_FORUMS'				=> append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}index.$phpEx", 'hash=' . generate_link_hash('global') . '&mark=forums'),
Asinshesq, can you confirm that this is correct?

In tinkering with this, note that &bull; is code for a bullet point so if you don't want a bullet point you should leave that out. If you want to skip a line before or after the link you are adding, <br /> is the code for a skipped line. Finally, note that you would presumably want to undo the change the mod otherwise has you make to style/prosilver/template/index_body.html so that you don't end up with two links that are identical on the index page.
I really want this slight mod on my forum. Where do I put the code?

I'm going --> style/prosilver/template/ ?????

Thanks for posting that, Paul (and thank you or whoever else did the validation). Two in one day was really nice to see!

Anyway, here is the changelog from the last validated version:

Code: Select all

##  2008-12-29 - Version 1.0.5c
##			cleaned up the code in the mark_post_unread() function
##			(should speed up the db queries) and re-wrote the
##			unread_tracking_info.txt file that appears in the readme folder
##			(if you already have 1.0.5 or 1.0.5a installed you just need to
##			replace functions_view_or_mark_unread_posts.php and redo
##			the changes to viewtopic that the install.xml file tells you to make)
##
##  2008-12-24 - Version 1.0.5b
##			revised code to deal with global announcements more dependibly
##			and revised various readme and notes files (if you already
##			have 1.0.5 or 1.0.5a installed you just need to replace
##			functions_view_or_mark_unread_posts.php and re-do the changes to
##			viewtopic that the install.xml file tells you to make)
##
##  2008-12-10 - Version 1.0.5a
##			added changes to dovetail with phpbb3.0.3 changes
##
##			fixed bug that caused unreads to show up in unread box even if
##			user is over the pm limit and the unread pm should really
##			only appear in the hold box
##
##			fixed bug that prevented a forum from being shown as unread on
##			the index page if the only unread post in the forum is the 
##			latest post in the forum
##
##			fixed bug that sometimes caused the link not to toggle to
##			"View your unread posts" when the user is in viewforum for a 
##			category or forum that has subforums
##
##			added code to supress 'move to unreadbox' entry in pm dropdown menu
##
##			re-did code in functions_view_or_mark_unread_posts.php to properly
##			deal with unread global announcments (but note that this will take
##			an extra query so people with huge boards who want to save a query
##			should read the authors notes carefully)
##
##			Note: all changes from version 1.0.4 to 1.0.5a have been posted
##			on the phpbb.com topic for this mod on or before December 10, 2008.
##			If you have already made these changes you do not need to upgrade
##			your mod installation other than as set forth in the entry for
##			version 1.0.5b above, but for people who have not made these changes
##			I include an upgrade_1-0-4_to_1-0-5b mod in the contrib folder
